is becoming more and more costly. Kew

of Defence are just a few of the many organisations that have taken
the green choice to compost on-site with a Big Hanna Composter. The
compost is used as a fertilizer which means there is no need for chemical
soil additives or peat. Compost from a number of Big Hanna’s

It is simple and practical to compost with Big
It is simple and practical because the most unpleasant fraction of
the waste stream - the food waste, is being dealt with hygienically
on a daily basis. You empty your food waste into Big Hanna Composter
every day. The average process time inside the machine is 8-10 weeks.
The aeration and turning is done automatically which means that the
natural decomposition process works perfectly from start to finish.
The finished compost is automatically fed in to a bag or bin ready
to be mixed with soil or put on maturation bay. The composting process
takes place in an in-vessel composting unit so there are no unpleasant
odours on-site. Our customers have all high demands on an economical
and functional handling of food waste. We have a vast experience from
our many installations and can make sure that the whole chain, from
food waste to compost, works as smoothly and simple as possible. A
bin lift and a hopper fed inlet are one of the many options available
for adjusting your Big Hanna Composter to your requirements. Read

Getting something back - compost!
Another reason for composting on-site is simply the compost! When
the biological process is finished the food waste is reduced by up
to 90%. This means that you make your own, peat free, environmentally
friendly compost - 10% of what you put in you get back in compost!
We cannot hope to reverse trends without changing our habits. Composting
on-site with the Big Hanna Composter is a vehicle for education and
empowerment - centralised solutions cannot have the same impact.
