Organic waste in its decomposition process releases very acidic juices, which when draining through the mountain of garbage carry heavy metals and toxic compounds that contain other wastes, producing what is known as leachate. These arrive from the landfills to the underground waters and thus reach the rivers and seas contaminating everything in its path.

Estudios y Construcciones Ltda. from the «Dispositivo Facultativo» with an invention patent SIC No. 29659 certified and the «Optional Tank» SIC certified invention patent No. 29660, has consolidated a process called «Controlled fermentation of biodegradable organic waste to obtain of fertilizers and inputs both solid and liquid”. The production process has not only focused on the production of compost obtained from the stabilization of the solid phase, but also that of the liquid phase to produce bio-inputs.

The technical support of this scientific development consists of an aggregate of techniques and procedures that involve native strains (microbiota) that rescue the use of our biodiversity, use of physical, chemical and microbiological principles that allow to optimize the fermentation process; In addition, the separation in phases, the aeration of these masses without requiring turns and the maturation and stabilization of the solid and liquid phases to be transformed into fertilizers and organic inputs, to be used in agricultural production.

The use of this technology allows the rapid transformation and decomposition of large volumes of organic matter, without the demand for sophisticated equipment or facilities, from a scientifically proven technology that is based on the accelerated replication of processes that occur in nature and in a clean and totally organic flow, which recycles the vital components of organic matter and reincorporates them into productive systems; in this way it promotes and incorporates sustainability and competitiveness to the agricultural activities of the regional agro ecosystems located around the urban communities that produce solid waste.

As a whole, this technology, combined with its social strategy, successfully achieves the objectives for which it was developed: substantially decreases the volumes of urban solid waste that reach the final disposal sites; induces and commits inter-institutional participation, incorporating the participatory work of small communities of recyclers and agricultural producers; generates essential inputs for production processes, especially those associated with organic agriculture, which introduce competitiveness and equity to agrifood chains; and finally, it helps to recover, protect and preserve the fertility and quality of the soil as a non-renewable natural resource.

The use of this technology offers the following advantages: It introduces the liquid phase to the productive chains, significantly increasing the profitability of these processes, decreasing greenhouse gases such as methane and nitrous oxide, preventing contamination of soils and water bodies, It reduces transportation costs by being able to locate treatment sites near the places where organic waste is produced, significantly decreases offensive odors and vectors.

The New Seed Foundation with the use of this technology has developed different liquid bio-inputs characterized by: containing major and minor essential elements in agriculture, synergistic mixtures of beneficial microorganisms and associated enzymes, developed to accelerate the biodegradation of organic materials, enrich substrates organic and restore soil microbiological and enzymatic balance.
