Composting is a technique whereby natural waste is organically converted into humus. Through systematic checks, these organic components can be returned to the soil, completing the natural cycle and enriching the land. Thanks to the composting process, it is possible to obtain inorganic mineral elements, recovered from the digestion of the organic materials inside the heap. This controlled microbiological composting allows us to restore the fertility and buffer capability of agricultural land.
Logrocompost is an agrotextile made from polypropylene which has undergone a treatment which give sit resistance to ultraviolet radiation. It is strong and breathable, so it protects the compost from the rain, while remaining unaffected for over 5 years. Its function is is very important for protection in the processes of composting or storage of organic waste.
Whether it is used sporadically or kept throughout the composting cycle, the sheets protect the heaps from excessive rainfall, ensuring that ideal aerobic conditions are maintained. It prevents anaerobic saturation which leads to the appearance of foul smells, an imbalance of nutrients and the appearance of excessive humidity which serve to increase the cost associated with the protection, packaging and transport of compost.
Numerous scientific studies show that the use of composting tarpaulins is beneficial for the quality and final appearance of the compost.

Logrocompost is designed to improve the quality of the compost.
- It allows the rain to bounce off and the snow to melt
- It reduces filtration and the loss of nutrients
- It reduces dehydration as a result of the effects of wind and sunshine.
- It improves the conservation and distribution of heat
- It improves the destruction of weeds and microbial pathogens
- It increases the rate of decomposition
- It improves the consistency and cohesion of the compost
- It permits the necessary gaseous exchange and an ideal temperature for ensuring the correct aerobic decomposition.
- It minimises the loss of nutrients by leeching.
- Both the moist air created by the heat generated inside the heap and the gases given off in the digestion process transpire through the sheet without obstruction of any kind.
- It prevents unwanted odours
