Aerobic Composting

This type of composting uses oxygen to break down organic matter. It requires frequent turning or agitation to provide oxygen to the microorganisms that break down the materials.

Anaerobic Composting

This type of composting takes place in the absence of oxygen. It is typically slower than aerobic composting and produces a different type of compost.


This is a type of composting that uses worms to break down organic matter. The worms eat the material and excrete castings, which are rich in nutrients and beneficial microorganisms.

Bokashi Composting

Bokashi composting is a method of composting that involves fermenting organic waste using a special mix of microorganisms. The fermented waste is then added to soil to provide nutrients.

Sheet Composting

This type of composting involves layering organic matter directly on top of soil. Over time, the organic matter breaks down and becomes part of the soil.

In-vessel Composting

In-vessel composting involves placing organic waste in a closed container or vessel. The temperature, moisture, and airflow are controlled to optimize the composting process.

Trench Composting

Trench composting involves digging a trench and burying organic matter in it. The organic matter decomposes over time and enriches the soil.

Biochar composting

Biochar composting involves combining organic waste with biochar, which is a type of charcoal that is produced by heating organic material in the absence of oxygen. cont.

The addition of biochar to compost has several benefits:

  1. Increased nutrient retention: Biochar has a porous structure that can absorb and retain nutrients, preventing them from leaching out of the compost.

  2. Improved soil structure: Biochar can improve soil structure by increasing porosity and water retention, reducing compaction, and enhancing root growth.

  3. Increased microbial activity: Biochar can provide a habitat for beneficial microorganisms, which can break down organic matter more efficiently and help prevent disease.

  4. Reduced greenhouse gas emissions: Biochar has a high carbon content, and incorporating it into compost can help sequester carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

To create a biochar compost, organic waste and biochar are mixed together and allowed to decompose. The resulting compost can be used as a soil amendment, providing nutrients and improving soil health. However, it is important to note that biochar should not be used as a replacement for organic matter in compost, as it does not contain the same range of nutrients as organic matter.
