Re: Aerobic and anaerobic composting.

I'm sure I have uploaded the zoomed picture of my bin.

Re: Aerobic and anaerobic composting.

So, based on the design of my composter bin.
1. Is this an anaerobic composting?
2. And we have to introduce bio active bacteria, EM4, to prevent stinks odor and help speed up anaerobic process?
3. But this composter bin produces heat. Is this still anaerobic composting?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Aerobic and anaerobic composting.

A quick answer because I have to go --- Bokashi - EM fermentation -- produces heat. It can get almost hot on top of the bin when they are actively fermenting. I think the gasses they produce (like bubbling yeast/bread dough and fermenting pickles) would drive or combine with existing oxygen.

The bottom mesh/grid and riser is consistent with my Bokashi container. Are those small drilled holes to the outside in the lowest part of the container? That's the part I'm not sure of.
