Our Compost

What is Compost?

Only aerobic decomposition methods render compost, anaerobic processes only inferior soil conditioners. In large scaleaerobic processes,decomposing organic material generates enough heat to destroy weed seeds andpathogens like E. Coli as well as insect eggs and larvae. Thus compost is naturally sanitized and, provides a high quality fertilizer which has numerous positive effects on the Ecosystem.

What is Compost good for?

TEMESI compost:

  • Slowly releases plant nutrition sothat less or no chemical fertilizer is needed
  • Restores the balance of the soil’s ecosystem
  • Supplies important minerals
  • Neutralizes acidic soil
  • Corrects the soil structure
  • Increases biological activity in the soil
  • Improves water retention
  • Acts as disease / pest control
  • Helps with erosion control
  • Contains no pathogens or weed seeds

What makes TEMESI Compost special?

Recycled organic waste is the raw material for TEMESIcompost. Organic waste can be decomposed :

  1. Aerobically with oxygen. This yields genuine compost like TEMESI compost
  2. Anaerobically without oxygen. This yields only inferior soil conditioner
Aerobic Decomposition

  • Organic material is decomposed by aerobic microorganisms that need oxygen. This oxidation process results in compost, carbon dioxide and water
  • The decomposition is quick and odorless
  • The compost is free of pathogens, insect eggs or larvae and above all, free of weed seeds
Anaerobic Decomposition

  • Anaerobic microorganisms decompose organic material without oxygen. The oxygen-free process results in the strong greenhouse gas methane
  • The decomposition is slow and smells badly
  • The product can containsphytotoxins, pathogens, insect eggs or larvae and weed seeds
  • TEMESI is one of the very few facilities in Indonesia that applies a genuine aerobic process with forced aeration. Blowers maintain aerobic conditions with at least 12% oxygen, which is measured daily
  • An ISO 9000 type Quality System assures high quality. The process is continuously monitored and the final products are analyzed in the on-site laboratory
  • Because aerobic decomposition avoids the strong greenhouse gas methane, the TEMESI facility receives Carbon Credits under the Clean Development Mechanisms (CDM) of the United Nation Framework Commission for Climate Change (UNFCCC)

ricefieldsHere weed seeds and pests fromorganic fertilizers that didn’t go through a hot sanitation process are visible. Weed competes for nutrients and must be removed.



This is the result with TEMESI Compost, which is genuine organic compost.Temperatures above 65 ºC for at least six days during the composting process assure that the compost is free of weed seeds, insect eggs or larvae and pathogens like E. coli. Also no phytotoxins are generated.

Where can you get TEMESI Compost?

TEMESI compost is sold in 5 and 20 kg bags or as bulk (tons or cubic meters). Smaller quantities are directly available. Large quantities of bags or bulk must be ordered. The TEMESI facility will also deliver compost.
