The biodecomposable wastes such
as kitchen wastes, if not properly managed decompose creating an insanitary
environment conducive to insect breeding and spreading of diseases. While
composting is an age old technology, there are limitations due to the longer
time periods required for completion of the process. Use of earthworms for
faster degradation of partially composted wastes is termed vermicomposting.
The technology involves management of the right species of worms under
conditions optimal for the vermicomposting process in a time period of 4
weeks or less.
Can be operated at
household, community and twonship level.
