The composting process is a very direct and important way of recycling. It has been estimated that 35% of household waste can be composted.
When producing compost (as the result is called), organic waste such as prunes, leaves, fruits, etc. are transformed into a mixture of nutrients rich in soil.
With composting, in addition to reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, the results are also important for the agricultural sector as it contributes as a natural fertilizer that returns some of the organic and inorganic ingredients through the compost back to the land. The following is replaced by the systematic use of cultivation chemicals such as herbicides and fertilizers that lead to desertification of previously fertile areas.
In particular, the use of compost improves soil water content and enriches its soil bacterial activity. At the same time, it has a direct influence on the availability of some mineral salts in plants.
This will limit the pollution of soil, groundwater and groundwater as well as surrounding areas.
