This Bokashi culture mix from BokashiCycle is used with the Bokashi Cyclette Fermenting System.
Bokashicycle culture mix is a proprietary-formulated culture mix designed to rapidly decompose and metabolize all organic waste material, which includes leaves, grass, weeds, shredded wood chips and food waste. This culture mix also works on meat and dairy products.
A proprietary accelerant (liquid spray) is used with the bokashi culture mix to process yard waste materials (grass, leaves, weeds and wood chips). No accelerant is required in the processing of food waste (meats, vegetables, fruits, dairy products and cereals).
This two-step acidic anaerobic fermentation process involves a fermentation step that takes 7 – 10 days, then a mixing of the fermented product with soil to allow the soil microbes to rapidly finish off the processing of waste material. When the culture mix is added to organic waste and allowed to ferment under anaerobic conditions no heat nor appreciable gases are released.
This process takes about 30 days, although the process may be slowed when the temperature is below 50 ºF, which may extend the process. This process is 10 times faster than composting, less expensive and, unlike composting, does not produce the volume of greenhouse gases and other noxious odors associated with composting. No methane is ever produced in the bokashi fermentation process.
One of the great advantages is the little work involved in converting waste to soil--It's easy to use! You will find that vermin and insects are not attracted to the process and noxious and offensive odors are eliminated.
With composting approximately 50% of the waste material is oxidized and released in the form of carbon dioxide. This results in very measurable increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide. The bokashi fermenting of organic waste material is a non-contributor to global warming.
Just add 3 to 4 teaspoons of the wheat bran-based microbes on top of each layer of food scraps put in the Cyclette and seal according to the instructions.
