Fertilizer soil stability
Fertilizer soil stability refers to the beneficial enhancement of soils, including:
- Improved physical structure (soil integrity, density, porosity etc.)
- Increased organic carbon content (ability to store and return carbon to soil)
- Increased water stability (water absorption & retention, erosion resistance etc.)
- Improved bioavailability of macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients and thus nutrient uptake by plants Harp’s premium organic fertilizers perform extremely well in all these key aspects.
To enhance performance and plant health when using organic fertilizers produced by Harp BioDigesters directly “on-site” Harp recommends aging the material for 10-14 days prior to application to ensure the release of an optimum balance of nutrients for plant growth and health.
The fertilizer can be simply stored on-site in open containers during this time. Whether the fertilizer is applied immediately or allowed to mature prior to application, once the nutrients are released into the soil, the plants, gardens, or fields will experience long-lasting nutritional benefits. Harp can provide recommendations for fertilizer application rates for bulk applications as well as potting mix use

“We haven’t sent any waste offsite since we installed the bio-digester in December, The bio-digester makes people think a bit more about what they are doing and keeps everyone focused on ‘green’ ways to process waste. The process has been embraced by our tenants and has got them thinking more about waste segregation. They now unpackage their sent produce.
As a result, not only are there no contaminated bins coming through, but we are creating added revenue by bailing our plastic. In preparation for a return to normal operations, we look forward to installing a second Harp – bio digester.
We are delighted with this initiative which directly feeds into our People Planet Sustainable Strategy”
– Michael Farrell, Estate Manager at Captial Dock Aramark Properties.
“Our customers are delighted that they now have a solution for food waste and are not contributing to unnecessary environmental damage caused by sending the organic matter to landfill. Harp Renewables has been hugely helpful and very responsive to any questions we have had, particularly in the early days while everyone was getting used to using the bio-digester.
There has also been a lot of interest in the bio-digester from other Local Authorities and the DCCAE.
It would be an ideal solution to any organisation with excess food waste and I would have no hesitation in recommending Harp Renewables to any interested party.”

''Great Educational Tool''
“We invested in a Harp CX5 Bio-Digester with a bespoke integrated biomass boiler as a solution to our waste costs. We are saving around £11,000 annually now.
With this solution we are also able to use the biomass boiler to heat out facilities which in turn dramatically reduces our heating’s C02 emissioons. All the excess digestate is then used as an organic fertilizer in our on-site greenhouses.
This is a great educational tool to teach all the students about sustainability so thatin the future, students are interested and determined to make this world a greener more environmentally friendly place to live.”
