Organic materials make up approximately 20-30% of household
wastes. Many municipalities are opting for composting in addition to
recycling to reduce the overall load arriving at landfills. Composting
facilities can accommodate large volumes of organic material including fruits and vegetable wastes, grasses, fats, oils and greases, and
many animal by-products.
Bionetix BCP 85 Compost Accelerator is a blend of bacteria
(Bacillus and Pseudomonas species), active yeast (Saccharomyces),
enzymes (cellulase, protease, lipase and amylase), and nutrients for
the acceleration and optimization of the degradation of household and
agricultural organic wastes in composting processes. A number of
microorganisms and nutrients have been selected to formulate this
product in order to both enrich the waste material to be degraded and
achieve an enriched fertilizer from the composted material.
Composting is a waste treatment method
used for over 2000 years. It is a natural
process whose purpose is the decomposition
of organic waste material into the form of
fine humus that is dark brown to black in
color. Composting is achieved through the
action of microorganisms such as bacteria
and fungi. Composting requires humidity
between 50% and 70% with good porosity
and permeability to supply adequate water
amounts to the microorganisms. Adequate
aeration and ventilation is important for oxygen supply. A ratio of carbon/nitrogen (C/N) between 20 and 35, a
ratio of carbon/phosphorus (C/P) between 50 and 150, trace elements,
vitamins and minerals ensure enhanced microbial growth. The organic
matter can be degraded over several weeks or months given a well
maintained system. Adding BCP 85 can help speed this process.
We know that degradation of organic matter during composting
depends on several interrelated factors. The diversity of the bacteriological community and their total amount in the waste material will
play key roles in both yield of degradation of the organic waste and the
quality of the compost material. Bionetix BCP 85 will guarantee a
good microbial diversity for better maturation and degradation of the
compost. Growth factors such as mineral elements and vitamins are
other important requirements that must be carefully monitored to
maintain a good microbial activity. BCP 85 contains mineral elements,
amino acids, peptides, and vitamins all necessary for the growth and
metabolic activity of a wide variety of microorganisms including bacteria, yeasts, and fungi all necessary in the composting processes. Thus
using BCP 85 will provide elementary nutrients often missing in
organic waste material for proper composting and optimization of
humus quality that can then be used as an organic fertilizer. Enzymes
and active yeast will address the issues of material with a slow rate of
Reduction of Recalcitrant Compounds
A major environmental concern from large scale composters is the
control of contaminants such as pesticides and preservatives found in
fruits and vegetables, grass trimmings etc. BCP 85 will provide sup-
port for the breakdown of a large number of these contaminants cur-
rently used in agriculture, and that end up concentrated in residential
organic waste. The use of this composting accelerator will permit the
addition of specialized microorganisms capable of degrading recalci-
trant compounds with hydrocarbon backbones.

Bionetix BCP 85 COMPOST ACCELERATOR CAN:
• Save time by accelerating the speed of degradation.
• Improve microbial growth by providing trace elements that may be
• Optimize the microbial diversity since several groups of microor-
ganisms including mesophyllic bacteria; thermophillic bacteria,
yeasts, and fungi must take turns to reduce the long carbon chains
into smaller molecules.
• Ensure the availability of effective microorganisms to degrade complex and recalcitrant organic molecules such as hydrocarbons and
inhibitors found in pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
• Reduce the amount of loaded waste by liquefying the solid
• Improve the quality of the compost by yielding high quality humus.
• Stabilize the humus while reducing malodorous molecules from the
• Enhance the quality of agricultural products that will be produced
from the natural compost fertilizers.
1 metric ton of total solid waste can be
treated with 250g of Bionetix BCP 85.
BCP 85 can be applied by either dry or wet
application. BCP 85 can be diluted in water
and directly sprayed onto the waste material to be composted. We recommend diluting one part powder in 20 parts of water for
this application. Or, water-soluble pouches
can be manually thrown in with the matter
given that the soil moisture is above 50%.
Once the product is added, it is important to
ensure that the product is well mixed into
the material. The dosage rate can vary according to system variation.
The above dosing is for a typical, well-maintained system. Parameters
such as pH, nutrient levels, oxygen availability, and moisture content
are critical to the success of composting as described above.
