The Aerobin Composter is an investment grade product where sophisticated technology meets the everyday compost pile head on. Discover how the Aerobin system works, why it can make compost even in colder months of winter, and how it is built to last. We encourage you to watch the informative video to visually see how & why the Aerobin uniquely does its work.
Making compost requires three constants; heat, circulating air, and moisture. The Aerobin Composter was designed to excel in all three of these categories, even in colder months.
Heat for Hot Composting: The center of a fresh compost pile starts out hot as the microbes begin to do their work of breaking things down, but keeping them hot requires mixing or turning, except in the case of the Aerobin. Hot-Composting means that inside temperatures are enough to kill weed seeds and their roots, and break down plant matter more quickly. The Aerobin’s sides and lid are double walled and filled with insulation foam to not only retain the heat generated, but to spread heat around the entire pile as well, not just the center.
Airflow to Eliminate Odors: Fresh air into the pile helps increase the number of microbes doing the work. Too little air stops them. The Aerobin’s patented Internal Lung keeps a constant flow of air back into the pile. This air flow also kills the other type of microbes that cause unpleasant odors. Only the good microbes like air, and the result is a sweet, earthy aroma like in the woods.
Moisture Just Right: A compost pile must have the right amount of moisture. Too dry or too wet and the composting process slows down. The Aerobin moderates moisture build up by allowing excess to drain into the base compartment reservoir where it is stored. The biomass, your organic material that is composting, retains the moisture it needs for maximum efficiency. This moisture, called leachate, is collected below and when diluted 10:1 with water, becomes a nutrient rich fertilizer that is often called compost tea. To remove your leachate, use the special hose & stop-valve provided in this kit. Drain as much as you need into large soda bottle or any container you prefer.
Benefits of Composting: The benefits are two fold. Compost greatly improves your soil structure to retain more moisture, which means less watering, and the organic gains make your vegetables taste like they should. Environmentally, a household can easily reduce up to 50% of its plant matter yard & kitchen waste which is now clogging our land fill sites and giving off greenhouse gases.
The top, sides and bottom panels are filled with foam insulation which is trapped between double walls, which results in retaining heat inside the composter
Aerobin is made of a durable heavy duty plastic engineered to withstand hot and cold climates, as well as UV protectants to avoid future cracking
Insulation creates continuous thermal reactions with composter even in most winter months
Patented ‘LUNG’ system creates constant flowing air needed for quicker decomposition of plants
No turning of compost required
As humidity rises inside the unit, moisture ‘rains down’ evenly to keep entire compost pile moist
Aerobin’s excess moisture from fresh green organics seep downward as leachate and collect in the base storage reservoir for future use
A drain hose is included, and a convenient valve at the end of the hose makes filling your container easy
2 doors to remove compost easily
Makes compost as fast as possible
Heavy-duty construction & locking system keeps sides permanently in place
