Orbin ECO-OWC offers cost effective, smell free, no power , and nutrient rich compost

A Comparison of Orbin™ ECO-OWC and Mechanical OWC is as follows,

  • Functionality:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Composting using microbial action. Organic waste convertor without electricity required.
    • Mechanical OWC: Relies on automated systems – requires electricity.
  • Capacity:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Solutions available to treat as little as 2kg per day to 20 tons per day of waste.
    • Mechanical OWC: Capacity ranges from 400 to 800 kg per day.
  • Fabricated or Manufactured:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Manufactured product using vacuum molding process for individual parts. Long life assured.
    • Mechanical OWC: Manufactured product utilizing motors and blades for waste processing. Requires regular maintenance.
  • Odour:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Guaranteed no odour due to the Carbon and Nitrogen balance provided by the Orbin composting enzyme.
    • Mechanical OWC: Emits bad odour due to the imbalance in carbon and nitrogen ratio.
  • Material of product:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) construction—corrosion-proof, weatherproof, and does not require extra shelter.
    • Mechanical OWC: Stainless steel and other metallic parts are used, necessitating shelter.
  • Liquid/Leachate tray:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Inbuilt and concealed liquid/leachate tray prevents odor. Features a tap for leachate removal.
    • Mechanical OWC: Not applicable, uses electricity to dry out leachate.
  • Area required:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Requires less space.
    • Mechanical OWC: Needs more space and covered area.
  • Labor requirement:
    • Orbin ECO-OWC: Maximum time required is 30 minutes for 1 labor, involving mixing waste with enzymes and dumping the mix into Orbin Stax. Designed for simplicity, requiring minimal skill; can be operated by any individual.
    • Mechanical OWC: Time required is 4-6 hours for 1 skilled labor, involving various activities like inspecting waste for metal parts, adding waste in batches, adding enzymes, and transferring cured waste to storage. Skilled labor needed due to the complexity of tasks involved, making it less accessible for untrained individuals.
