Karnataka Compost Development 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 Corporation is floated by Karnataka Agro Industries Corporation, Bangalore Mahanagara Palike and Karnataka State Co-operative Marketing Federation Limited 50.00 lakhs Share Capital with 52%, 24.0% and 24.% shares respectively.

The plant was receiving 50 tpd in the early years and it was set to receive 200 tpd after its expansion program under Bangalore Mega City Scheme from the year 2000-2001.



It was set up in 15.10 Acres area of KCDC and BBMP has allotted 14.0 Acres to increase the capacity.

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 15.10 Acres area.

The plant was receiving 50 tpd in the early years and it was set to receive 200 tpd after its expansion program under Bangalore Mega City Scheme.
