OXNARD, Calif. - Aug. 24, 2016 - PRLog -- Agromin, the Oxnard-based manufacturer of earth-friendly compost products made from organic material, recently reached a milestone: it has now converted 5 million tons of green waste into compost since it began operation in 1993.

Agromin receives organic materials collected from southern California homes, businesses and from agriculture. Once received, non-recyclable items (i.e., plastics, trash, treated wood) are removed by hand. The organic material is then processed into "wind rows" that are composted for about 45 days. The material is naturally composted by microorganisms. The all-natural compost is then used by growers, landscapers and residents.

Converting 5 million tons of organic material into sustainable organic products has had a measurable impact on the environment. Using EPA calculations, 691,381 metric tons of Carbon Dioxide has been kept out of the atmosphere as a result of Agromin's recycling efforts. Carbon Dioxide is considered a greenhouse gas since it absorbs heat and leads to atmospheric warming.

"Recycling organic waste is beneficial on many fronts," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "It reduces greenhouse gases, makes use of organic material that would have otherwise been thrown away and the resulting organic compost helps grow natural fruits and vegetables and creates healthy landscapes. Nothing is wasted so it is truly a sustainable process."

All Agromin products are manufactured without biosolids or animal waste. Agromin's Compost 100 is approved for use in certified organic production or food processing and handling according to the USDA Program rule. The product is popular with organic growers. It is also available to consumers.

About Agromin:

Agromin manufactures earth-friendly soil products for farmers, landscapers and gardeners. Agromin is also the composter for over 50 California cities. Each month, Agromin receives more than 30,000 tons of organic material and then uses a safe, natural and sustainable process to transform the material into soil products. The results are more vigorous and healthier plants and gardens, and on the conservation side, the opportunity to close the recycling loop, allow more room in landfills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
