Bactériolit is a 100% natural composting additive recognised by the French Administration as CMO (Complex of micro-organisms) for composting without turning over manure and to obtain a marketable organic amendment compliant with NFU 44-051 standard and not subject to the Land Application Plan. It quickly activates the biological transformation of manure and slurry into humus and improves their efficiency, notably by reorganising the forms of nitrogen that they contain.
The minerals contained in farm fertilisers are reorganised and fixed on the clay-humic complex and restored to plants rather than being evaporated or leached. Plants thereby obtain more balanced feed over a longer period of time. As a member of the ADEME international club*, SOBAC was able to present its Bactériolit technology, a real CO2 and nitrogen emissions reducer, at COP21 PARIS 2015, as an agricultural solution to fight global warming.
It was also selected by the “4 FOR 1000” initiative** launched by the Ministry of Agriculture. In 2013, this technology received a Gold Medal awarded by France Agricole et l’Éleveur Laitier for its performance in promoting sustainable development, by transforming manure into compost of high agronomic value and by reducing smells.
