Karnataka Compost Development Corporation is involved in Eco-friendly treatment of city garbage and agriculture waste through production of Compost based organic manure and Vermi compost. This Corporation was established in 1975 as one among thirteen such plants in India based on World Health Organizations technology as per the directions of Government of India to 22 States in accordance with the recommendation of Shri Sivaraman Committee constituted on the subject. This is the only plant running successfully unlike other twelve plants, which closed down their operations within one year due to unsuitability of technology to Indian un-segregated garbage conditions and lack of economic viability. This Corporation has become successful because of adoption of indigenous, simple low cost maintenance technology, which is found to be commercially viable. It was set up in 29.00 Acres area. This Corporation is floated by Karnataka Agro Industries Corporation, Bruth Bangalore Mahanagara Palike and Karnataka State Co-operative Marketing Federation Limited with 52%, 24.0% and 24.0% shares respectively.
