With the PÖTTINGER fermenter, organic residues can be converted into high-quality compost in a climate-neutral process.

A high portion of humus is a central factor for maintaining the soil fertility of agricultural land. So, regular fertilisation, ideally with high-quality compost, is essential for humus formation in soils. In comparison with unfertilised soil or soil that has been fertilised with mineral salts, the regular fertilisation with compost has a compensating effect on annual fluctuations caused by the weather. Fertilisation with compost increases the yield potential and yield stability throughout the year.

Particularly with vegetable cultivation, the increased workload due to fertilising with compost is more than compensated by the improvement in the crop yield. In addition, a high humus content also provides a valuable contribution towards climate protection and healthy foodstuffs, as healthy soils take up CO2 and store more water and nutrients.

Soils fulfil important functions

  • Growth substrate and nutrient store for plants
  • Water store and purification system
  • CO2 store

Fertilising with compost and the associated humus production, makes the soil more fertile, increases the water storage capability and binds more CO2.

Our fermenter boxes are comparable with the rotting boxes of closed composting systems. The critical difference is that additional value can be added thanks to the gas-tight containers where bio-gas with a methane content of up to 50% is produced, which can then be passed on for energy extraction.

Increasing the system capacity

  • The closed design of the PÖTTINGER fermenter means that the annual capacity of the bio waste to be converted can be increased. Because the material in the system is not composted in the open, the phase of intensive rotting, which is often odour-intensive, is omitted. Odour emissions are significantly reduced by this.

Reduction in workload

  • The support effort required for the operation of the PÖTTINGER fermenter is limited to the filling and emptying of the fermenter boxes and the compliance with service intervals.
