Actium Composting

Actium began manufacturing rotating composters in 2010. Initially, our customers were poultry and other livestock farmers. They have an organic waste that is difficult and costly to dispose of, and they preferred an environmentally sound way to do it. The disposal of food waste is now the same. Food scraps can also be composted on-site in one our rotating, insulated drums. The number of food waste producers choosing to compost at their location is increasing every year.
