Mozambique Installation

Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort in Mozambique have installed Earth Probiotic’s Earth Cycler food waste composter and biochar Earth Kiln retort. All food waste will be composted and fed back to soil. The biochar retort will process palm tree waste into biochar. The palm tree waste is currently a fire hazard and, due to its fibrous nature, extremely difficult to compost directly.
