Compost Finishing (KPI-14)

Measures the weight in kilograms, the finished compost that is handled by all individuals involved in final screening, sieving and windrow bagging, in an hour. Expressed as kg / person / hour

  • Acceptable average – > 50 / kg / person / hour
  • True increase expected when moisture content is within normal limits
  • True decrease chiefly due to inadequate training, moisture content of feedstock, and electrical and mechanical failures
  • Apparent decrease chiefly due to apathy and lack of supervision

Actions to be taken

  • Train and re-train personnel and intensify supervision
  • Periodical machinery maintenance
  • Process batches that concur to accepted moisture limits
