Vision & Mission


Bangalore City is generating around 4000 tons per day of Municipal Solid Wastes. KCDC is presently receiving up to 60.0 M.tons segregated garbage per day and it will be increased in future days and to carry on production of all kinds of organic manures and deal in all kinds of materials required for the manufacture of organic manures, to improve its value or turn it to better use.

KCDC adopted aerobic decomposition windrow method.  When organic materials are decomposed in the presence of oxygen, the process is called aerobic.  The garbage received is arranged in windrows before segregation of contraries on the concrete platform.  An inoculant is sprayed to speed up decomposition and reduce odors.  The windrow will be turned with the help of Front end loaders for proper aeration once in 7 days so that aerobic process continues un-interruptedly.  Water is sprayed as and when required depending on the moisture content.  Composting is completed within 7 to 8 weeks and the degraded compost is fed to the screening plants to produce different grades of organic manure.


Karnataka Compost Development Corporation Limited is producing organic manure like city compost, and vermi- compost by using house hold and agricultural wastes and Granulated Organic Manure in KCDC Brand name Agri Gold.


  1. City Compost:  At present organic manure (processed through machineries) is produced to the extent of 10,000 tons annually. The production of organic manure  is likely to be increased to 40,000 tons per annum from next year onwards
  1. Vermi compost: By making use of the partially decomposed Municipal solid wastes, Vermi - Compost is produced to the extent of 10 to 15 tons per day is likely to be increased to 10,000 tons per annum from next year onwards


  1. AGRI GOLD: By Blending organic additives like Poultry litter, Rock Phosphate, MOP, Dolomite, Gypsum, Neem Cake, Zinc Sulphate and Borax, passing into machinery the granulated organic manure is produced to the extent of 10,000 tons per annum.


Organic Farming although  is an age old concept and farmers are aware of it’s importance  as the intensive use of chemical fertilizers has not only  polluted the soil, water and air but also  caused slow degradation in the soil health and also causing injury to human beings.
KCDC with its expertise and experience has developed a simple, indigenous, low power oriented, low investment technology. Many States in the country are contacting KCDC to set up the units based on KCDC’s technology.
KCDC owes the following responsibilities as consultants for setting-up of a compost facility,

  1. Preparation of Detailed Project Report consisting of the following services,
    1. Designing of the project,
    2. Providing specification of each of the infrastructures required for a scientific compost facility
    3. Estimation of costs of each of the infrastructures required for compost facility.
    1. Drawings for the civil structure and mechanical structure (machineries and shed)
    2. Specifications of compost handling equipments like front-end pay loaders, tippers, tractors etc.


  1. Supervision of the implementation of the project: KCDC also undertakes the responsibility of supervision of construction / implementation at all stages at site.
  1. Commissioning of the project: KCDC undertakes the responsibility of commissioning of project if the project is implemented by adopting KCDC’s technology and upon the supervision of implementation by KCDC.


  1. Training of the staff: Once the project is implemented and successfully commissioned, KCDC imparts training to the staff of ULB on various aspects of process methodology for getting the organic fraction of MSW decomposed fully over a specific period of time. The process methodology adopted is an important activity where the environmental pollution is properly addressed. The quality of manure and its selling price depends on how best and how fast the organic fraction of MSW is degraded. ULB staff will also be trained to operate / handle the processing machineries. KCDC will impart training to the concerned staff for one full cycle of two (2) months.


Training to Public at Haralakunte Plant: KCDC has constructed training centre from RKVY funds to train students, House wives, farmers, NGO’s and surrounding residence  for production of Vermi compost and source segregation of garbage.


Government Budget:
Company has proposed the Government of Karnataka for allocate     budgetary support to KCDC and submitted DPR for sanctioning Rs.600 crore amount for expansion of KCDC all ULB’s in  Karnataka under the slogan of  ‘Kasa muktha Karnataka’
