What is a Rocket Composter?

The Rocket® is simply a controlled environment in which harmless food composting microbes thrive, the addition of fresh waste (their food) into a lovely, warm, moist and well ventilated compost environment (the Rocket®) makes them multiply, eat, multiply even more and grow.

This generates heat. This heat is contained through high density insulation and keeps the environment warm and the bugs working while pasteurizing the product.
Food and organic waste is simply placed into the hopper on the top of the machine with an equal quantity of “woody” material.

The process from then on is quite simple as the Rocket is an automated composter. As the blades of the internal shaft turn they aerate the material, moving it along the body of the machine providing extra loading space at the input end of the machine and pushing finished material from the exit of the machine. The food or organic waste has an average residency time of around 14 days in total, with today’s added waste coming out in two weeks time plus tomorrow’s waste – i.e. 2 weeks + 1 day.

Whether you have restaurant food waste or looking for large scale food composting there is likely a model to suit.

Available Australia wide including Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Regional, Remote and Island locations.
