Midwest Bio-Systems – ACS N-Converter
Aeromaster Composting Equiment
About the Company:
In 1993 Midwest Bio-Systems (MBS) was founded to manufacture Aeromaster Composting Equipment for producing high quality Humus Compost, as its founder strived to guide and supply products to farmers all over the world into higher profitability and long-term success.
The MBS Aeromaster ® line of compost turning equipment coupled with the Aeromaster Composting System (ACS) methodology and supporting microbial inoculants provide compost producers a means to consistently produce high value, humus compost.
The Aeromaster Composting System enables compost facilities to implement the best practices to produce higher quality compost, faster and more economical than traditional methods. Instead of brewing compost tea, MBS recommends extracting Humus Compost into a liquid Humus extract; to this end MBS has produced the ACS line of compost tea extraction products, which are designed to substantially increase the fertility power of compost.
About the Solution:
In the breakdown portion of the composting process, organic matter is broken down by microbial processes and their resulting heat. Nitrogen is converted from ammonia (NH3) to Nitrates (NO3).
Inoculation with ACS N-Converter provides the specific microbes best suited to break down the organic matter efficiently and effectively, then convert the ammonia to nitrites, and then nitrates. Nitrogen conversion is the factor carrying the greatest weight in compost quality. ACS N-Converter also increases the overall microbial population and its diversity. Inoculates 1,000 cubic yards of initial material.

Midwest Bio-Systems has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with Midwest Bio-Systems to further refine the cost and performance information on their solution. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
