The Pondicherry Agro Service and Industries Corporation Limited (PASIC), Pondicherry and the Pondicherry Co-operative Sugar Mills Limited (PCSM), Lingareddipalayam, Pondicherry, have entered into a joint venture on “Bioprocessing of Pressmud for organic manure”. Pressmud – the organic solid waste and the Sugar Mill effluent – the liquid waste of Sugarmill are being utilized in this project for conversion into a nutrient rich, good quality organic manure known as “Pressmud Compost”.

The whole process of pressmud composting, utilizing the above mentioned industrial wastes is done by adopting the state of Art Technology, “Aerobic decomposition of biomass in windrows”. The process is eco-friendly, as it attempts to nullify the environmental pollution caused by these two industrial wastes. The concept is convincing as it is planning not only for “zero pollution” but also aims at contributing to the “Integrated Plant Nutrient System” for the soil, by way of yielding ‘Humus’ rich “Pressmud Compost” and thereby leading to sustained soil fertility and enhanced crop productivity. The composted pressmud is admixtured with soil ameliorants and Biofertilisers to yield the final product “Enriched Compost”.

The project is being carried out by PASIC at the PCSM premises, Lingareddipalayam, by utilizing the above mentioned raw materials. The annual production of Enriched Compost from Pressmud is to the tune of 4000 Tons.

PASIC ENRICHED COMPOST “Pasic Enriched Compost” is an organic manure manufactured out of the Urban Garbage of Pondicherry and other Agricultural Waste Biomass using modern scientific methods. The quality of a fertile land deteriorated due to continuous and excessive application of inorganic fertilisers and pesticides can be improved by application of PASIC Enriched Compost. SALIENT FEATURES:

  • Contains 25-30% Organic matter.
  • Contains Major plant nutrients like N,P,K,Ca,Mg & S and Minor elements like Fe,Zn,Mn,Cu,B & Mo.
  • Saves the cost on inorganic fertilisers by 15-20%
  • Iprovesthe structure, texture & quality of the soil.
  • Improves the water holding capacity of the soil as this compost contains fibrous material like decomposed coirwaste & other Agriculture biomass.Minimises the water like requirement of the crop to some extent.
