Worm Farm Vermiconverter
On Site Organic Vermi Digesters
Standard Commercial Model + Additional Modules
Vermicrobe International Pty Ltd is an Australian company formed to
develop and market environmentally Low Impact” best practice
technologies and products. The company has available a range of
‘On-site Waste Treatment Digesters” for use by organic waste
The On-Site Organic Vermi Digester has been designed to provide continuous processing of organic
waste materials using ‘in situ’ earthworm processing technology
based on sound vermiculture principles. A significant reduction in
the cost and volume of waste being removed from a premises can be
made by recycling on-site, i.e. food preparation waste, cooked food
waste, lawn clippings, and other green garden waste, combined with
cardboard and paper wastes.
The Organic Vermi Digester has been engineered to provide the right earthworm process
environment and flow to do just that Recycle your organic waste
onsite, trouble free. The Organic Vermi Digester is maintained at optimum operating efficiency via a solar powered,
electronically controlled moisture reticulation system, capable of
being adjusted to suit different climatic regions and situations.
Essential to the operation, the solar powered control system
ensures the internal environment is maintained at optimum for the
earthworms to accelerate the reduction of organic waste to organic
Solar powered control of conditions reduces temperature variations
resulting in optimum earthworm processing capabilities. The solar
powered system is via a 5 watt solar panel that feeds into a 7 amp
hour battery which controls the internal moisture levels of the
unit. This offers the pump ample battery redundancy, ensuring that
the moisture control system can operate for up to 2 weeks in the
case of poor weather conditions. The solar powered control system
incorporates a regulator for battery protection.
Excess liquid released by food wastes as it is being processed by
earthworms can be harvested regularly for use as an organic plant
food, along with the solid worm castings produced by the system.
Access to the Organic Vermi Digester is via a hand-cranked lid. Ease of operation and full top opening
provides for simple access when ‘feeding’ your wastes to the unit.
The heart of the system is in its unique triangular design hidden
within. Processed waste material
(castings) falls from the sides of the triangular cage into the
collection trays below. There is very little area that is more than
300mm from the atmosphere, which is a key design feature. This
accelerates the conversion process.
Moisture is collected from the base of the triangular cage and
returned back to the pump via a collection tray and filter,
utilising the solar powered controller. The liquid can be pumped
out for direct use on gardens and lawns via the onboard pump.
Fourteen large trays collect the earthworm castings and make for
ease of handling when moving them to the garden. Worm castings
makes excellent plant food, high in nutrients and essential soil
The unique Vermi Digester design has been recognised with a Design
mark at the Australian Design Awards, and more recently the
Digester received further acclaim by the peak environmental
labelling association Environmental Choice Australia issuing an
Environmental Choice Tick, demonstrating that the Digesters life
cycle has a reduced carbon footprint when compared with other
options in organic waste handling.
The Organic Vermi Digester can be expanded to meet the task at hand; economy of components
can be achieved as the system is fully modular. Capacity of the
unit can also be varied catering for seasonal variations in organic
The Digesters are supplied in kit form for cost effective shipping
and transport. Assembly can then be performed on-site. Included in
the kit is the working platform as shown in the above image.
The Organic Vermi Digester is provided with comprehensive assembly instructions, full written
instructions for operation of the digester along with a
comprehensive troubleshooting guide, in addition to on-going
support via phone and/or e-mail. Please click here for further
The system is accompanied by a full 24-month warranty on structural
components and workmanship providing peace of mind, with 12 months
warranty coverage on electrical and plumbing system components.
