How Does A Lomi Work

How does Lomi work? Lomi accelerates the composting process, decomposing organic matter (like food & plant waste) into CO2, water, and nutrient-rich dirt. Lomi does this by harnessing both physical and bio-chemical means of breaking down food waste.

Do Lomi really work?

Lomi does a great job of containing smell; even when the bucket reeked of old food, there was no leakage as long as the lid was covered. This is also thanks to the activated carbon located in its two filters. (These filters need to be replaced every three to six months, depending on use.)

How long does Lomi take to work?

Lomi allows you to turn food waste into plant-ready nutrients in under 24 hours. Boost your plants while reducing your waste.

Things To Put Into A Lomi Composter

  • Fruit & Vegetable Scraps.
  • Meat Scraps.
  • Dairy Products.
  • Baked Goods, Cereals.
  • Plate Scrapings.
  • Leftovers.
  • Small, Soft Bones (fish, chicken bones from broth)

  • Can you put plastic in a Lomi?

    Approved bioplastics can be broken down in industrial settings or by Lomi because they can create conditions and heat that you can't reach with a regular compost pile. If you were to throw bioplastics in your compost bin, they would take a very long time to break down.

    Can you put paper in Lomi?

    Yes in small amounts, but we don't recommend them as they're highly recyclable items, so save your Lomi for non-recyclable things!

    Are compost machines worth it?

    Electric composters can be a good solution for people with few other options, but considering the environmental toll of electronics and plastics, many people will do just as well with a low-tech fix.

    Can I put chicken bones in compost?

    It is perfectly safe to compost chicken bones, whether cooked or uncooked. Actually, cooked chicken bones are better to compost to deter the spread of harmful bacteria. The best thing about composting chicken bones is that they are relatively slim, so they naturally decompose quicker than other types of bones.

    Can I put bread in Lomi?

    If you have any bread lying around that may otherwise go to waste, go ahead and compost it. Best of all, bread scraps break down just as rapidly as other food scraps in your Lomi bin. Simply press a button, run the cycle of your choice, and let Lomi create nutrient-rich potting soil for you.
