This Boston based company creates "biostimulant" fertilizers. Using food waste from produce handlers, food processors, supermarkets, farmers’ markets, restaurants, hospitals, and airlines and using their proprietary technology the waste food is broken down by bacteria much like in waste water treatment facilities. The fermentation of the food waste/bacteria mixture is aided with heat and oxygen, like many compost digestion processes. The products produced include odorless fertilizers for the residential and commercial worlds for lawn, turf growth, and gardens. The fertilizers are completely natural and their production methods means the waste is diverted from landfills, methane and CO2 production from their decomposition is eliminated, and they replace artificial fertilizers that pollute water sources and damage soil quality over the long term.
Converted Organics is a dual-eco company. By that we mean we help solve two environmental problems: 1) disposing of food waste without creating harmful greenhouse gasses and 2) creating an environmentally friendly fertilizer. The technology used by Converted Organics converts that food waste into an all natural odorless organic fertilizer. We build state of the art environmentally benign factories that process the food waste using an accelerated composting technology that makes fertilizer free of all harmful bacteria, pathogens and synthetic chemicals. We enhance the nutrient content using all natural organic ingredients to produce fertilizers that enrich the soil and work in harmony with nature.
The use of organic fertilizers aids the health of the soil by adding organic matter to the mixture. Over the course of use organic natural fertilizers require less applications, Converted Organics soil additives can reduce plant disease and fungus growth, and can actually cost less due to requiring less applications.
