Karnataka Compost Development Corporation Ltd.

Welcome to Karnataka Compost Development Corporation Ltd
Karnataka Compost Development Corporation is involved in Eco-friendly treatment of city garbage and agriculture waste through production of Compost based organic manure and Vermi compost. This Corporation was established in 1975 as one among thirteen such plants in India based on World Health Organizations technology as per the directions of Government of India to 22 States in accordance with the recommendation of Shri Sivaraman Committee constituted on the subject. This is the only plant running successfully unlike other twelve plants, which closed down their operations within one year due to unsuitability of technology to Indian un-segregated garbage conditions and lack of economic viability. This Corporation has become successful because of adoption of indigenous, simple low cost maintenance technology, which is found to be commercially viable. It was set up in 29.00 Acres area. This Corporation is floated by Karnataka Agro Industries Corporation, Bruth Bangalore Mahanagara Palike and Karnataka State Co-operative Marketing Federation Limited with 52%, 24.0% and 24.0% shares respectively.
Bangalore generates 2,500- 3,500 tonnes of solid waste every day, of which residential waste is 363 gm per capita per day. More than 60% of waste generated by our Bengaluru constitutes organic waste. KCDC turns almost 90% this waste into compost.
Waste-to-energy plants based on combustion technologies are highly efficient power plants that utilize municipal solid waste as their fuel rather than coal, oil or natural gas. Burning reduces the volume of munisipal solid waste by about 87%.
Eco friendly
Taking the help of (KCDC), the Agriculture department is going to process the wet waste generated in the city and also the compost generated in the waste processing units of BBMP and sell it to farmers at a reduced price.
Organic waste is a valuable resource can be used for improving the soil. By recycling organic waste, we decrease the soil’s need for water and fertiliser since we return the nutrients once in the living material back to the soil to help new plants grow.
