Bio·nest / Agricultural supplies


Bio·nest is a warm bed for abandoned animals using bio-thermal energy.

The mechanism of heat is simple : When cover the compost pile with agricultural vinyl, Bacteria makes a heat of 50-70°C more than 15 days, because they decompose the compost. Bio·nest consists of five bricks to hold, and plastic pieces for entrance. They are used with agricultural vinyl to covering compost at the farm.

We hope Bio·nest makes pleasant memories for organic farmers, and also be a warm help for abandoned pets.
