Product description

Biociclo’s  ACM (Ammendante Compostato Misto = mixed composted soil conditioner)   is  the  stable,  hygienic  and  humus-rich  end  product  of  the  composting  of  biowaste,  food  waste collected door to door and green waste. It is a secondary raw material containing the stable organic material, called humus,  and  the  inorganic  mineral  fraction  (i.c.  of  the  waste  the  composting  process  started  with).  The  high temperature during the process imply that compost is free of pathogens, insect larvae and weed seeds. This ensures that  the  use  of  pesticides  and  herbicides  on  compost-enriched  soil  will  be  limited  compared  to  not  treated  soil improvers  applications.  The  amount  of  humus  also  increases  and  the  cation  exchange  capacity  of  the  material improves.

The formation of humic acids from microbial degradation products also provides suitable properties for use of compost as a soil improver. Biociclo’s ACM could be used as a soil improver in horticulture and agriculture, resupplying a soil that is exhausted by use in organic matter and nutrients. Just because compost contains, besides certain levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium, a lot of organic matter. The nutrients in compost are structured in an organic matrix and are slowly released. Biociclo’s ACM is a multi-nutrient soil improver with a slow fertilisation effect. This, on the other hand, helps to prevent the leaching of nutrients through sudden abundance.
