CSS provides a unique full-cycle process that will assist our supermarket customers to recycle their organics, improve store hygiene, and reduce costs, in addition to helping our agricultural customers save money, increase crop yield and reduce nitrate runoff. We are committed to produce a safe, low cost, high volume, and high quality soil amendment product, H2H. As a result, we will greatly improve our air, water and soil environment, while employing safe, efficient, and effective solutions that meet the needs of our customers.
The CSS aerobic, enzymatic digestion technology is uniquely different from existing organic composting techniques and alternative digestive processes. First, CSS's digestive process is 720 times more efficient than composting which typically takes 3 months to complete. By not letting the food rot, CSS is able to harness the full capabilities and benefits of the unsold food and drastically reduce the potential risks of harboring pathogens while maintaining significant benefits to soil organisms. Healthy soil makes healthy plants.
Over 90% of the food we digest becomes H2H liquid fertilizer. The screened material that remains can be fed to worms to produce worm castings, also known as vermi-compost. Vermi-compost is a well known soil amendment which is used successfully by farmers and home gardeners alike to improve crop and garden output. Our ability to produce this valuable by-product means that we are able to recycle 100% of the food we collect from supermarkets into safe, effective and economical agricultural products.
Interested in testing H2H on your crops, please email us. We would love to hear from you.
