Vermicompost (vermi-compost, vermiculture) is the product of the decomposition process using various species of worms. Usually red wigglers, white worms, and other earthworms are used to create a mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste, bedding materials. Vermicast (also called worm castings, worm humus, worm manure, or worm feces) is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by earthworms.These castings have been shown to contain reduced levels of contaminants and a higher saturation of nutrients than the organic materials before vermicomposting.
Vermicompost contains water-soluble nutrients and is an excellent, nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner. It is used in farming and small scale sustainable, organic farming.
The Andhyodaya has constructed more than 150 vermin composting units both with Terracotta and Ferro Cement technologies. This is a very low cost mechanism for organic waste management.

Waste Management is one of the major issues of today. It has been found that contageous diseases like Chicken Gunia, H1 N1, Dungie Fever etc. are caused by lack of proper Bio Waste Management. We are into this project to bring in awareness among the public and to give them working models of low cost and effective Bio Waste Management tools.

Andhyodaya Low Cost Portable Biogas Plants For Waste Management: The best way for an effective waste management is to treat the waste where it originates. Micro level approach is the best form for sustainable waste management. We developed a low cost Portable Biogas Plants for Organic Waste Management at the micro level. The plant can be placed either in the kitchen or work area. Space taken is only 3 square feet. through this biogas plant domestic organic waste generates cooking gas, nitrogen rich slurry and complete waste management.
