Le compostamento

(Languages of this post: Interlingua, English)

Quasi 25% (vinti cinque pro cento) del residuos organic proveni de cocinas e de jardines. Iste residuos, transformate in composto (fertilisante organic refinate), es un importante fonte de nutrientes pro plantas. Le composto meliora le qualitates del solo, mantene su humiditate, e protege nostre plantas del congelation. Si vos ha un jardin o un parcella de terreno, forsan vos volera preparar vostre proprie pila de composto.

Le processo non es difficile. Le conversion de residuos organic a composto continua omne le anno, ma le bacterios que los discompone es plus active durante le menses plus calide. Le composto debe mantener se humide, e il es necesse mover lo occasionalmente con un pala pro oxygenar lo.

On anque debe coperir un pila de composto pro mantener su calor. Le composto debe continer un mixtura de productos organic que ha un grande quantitate de nitrogeno e de carbono, e le pila debe esser ben oxygenate pro promover le travalio del bacterios que produce le composto in su forma final.

In alicun paises, como le Statos Unite e Germania, on anque usa quantitates ben selegite de stercore animal pro producer le composto, e iste paises nunc cerca methodos pro construer fabricas pro producer lo in grande quantitates. On anque poterea usar le gases proveniente de tal fabricas como combustibile in plantas electric.

Programmas pro producer composto in quantititates industrial poterea diminuer problemas causate per le uso del fertilisante chimic artificial que nunc contamina nostre fluvios e rivieras, fontes importante de aqua potabile.



Almost 25% (twenty-five percent) of organic wastes come from kitchens and gardens. These wastes, once transformed into compost (refined organic fertilizer), are an important source of nutrients for plants. Compost improves the quality of the soil, maintains its humidity, and protects our plants from freezing. If you have a garden or a parcel of land, perhaps you will want to prepare your own compost pile.

The process is not difficult. The conversion of organic waste into compost continues all year long, but the bacteria that decompose it are more active during the warmer months. Compost should be kept damp, and it is necessary to move it occasionally with a shovel to oxygenate it.

A compost pile should also be covered to maintain its heat. Compost should contain a mixture of organic products that have a large amount of nitrogen and carbon, and the pile should be well oxygenated to promote the work of the bacteria that produce the compost in its final form.

In some countries, like the United States and Germany, a certain amount of well selected animal manure is used to produce compost, and these countries are now looking for ways to build factories to produce it in great quantities. The gases coming from such factories can be used as fuel in electric plants.

Programs for producing compost in industrial quantities could reduce problems caused by the use of artificial chemical fertilizer, which now contaminates our rivers, important sources of potable water.

Thanks for writing an article promoting composting! It is a lot simpler and everyone should be doing it to help our environment. I recently purchased a compost aerator and it really made it easy.
