Agro Waste Compost Facility

Pasar Borong Selangor in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, MALAYSIA

Detik Aturan had successfully designed, build, fabricate, operated and transferred the first agricultural waste compost facility in Malaysia for PKPS Agro Industries Sdn Bhd.

The first in Malaysia’s state of Selangor, and the first ever market waste compost facility in the country, PKPS Agro Industries has embarked on a lucrative venture that is now a benchmark for other state assemblies to follow.

Detik Aturan and the client worked together to define the requirements of this compost facility. The client, a subsidiary of Perbadanan Kemajuan Pertanian Selangor (PKPS), had chosen a site located within the compound of the wholesale wet market named Pasar Borong Selangor. The market waste – unused fruits and vegetables – will thereby be conveniently transported from the market to the compost facility.

Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Seri Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi visited this compost facility on 17th December 2007, which by then had been fully operational since 2006.

The following outlines the Compost Facility Construction process:

  1. Identification of the new project site
  2. Clearing the land
  3. Creating the building foundation
  4. Constructing the buildings
  5. Laying the Windrow building’s pipeline system
  6. Completed building ready for operation


The following describes the Composting Process in the PKPS Compost Facility:

  • Market Waste Collection

Fruit and vegetable hawkers prepare their produce to be sold early in the day; and when some produce seem to be soiled or damaged, it is thus thrown away. We see this market waste in large bins in the compound.

  • Waste Transportation and Preparation

The bins are transported a short distance to the compost facility. Here, employees need to carefully shovel through the market waste and remove items that are unfit to be processed (such as plastic bags, newspapers, aluminum cans, etc). This process is tedious yet very important. Success here allows for the next phases of composting to be done right.
  • Shredding / Slicing Process

Employees of the compost facility will take time to separate usable waste from the pile and shovel them onto the conveyor belt of the slicer / shredder machine. Once the machine does its job, the market waste will fall into a collection wagon (or a large bin).
  • Transfer to Windrow Building

The collection wagon with the market waste then takes a short journey to the Windrow building, where the windrow will be prepared.
  • Making Windrow

On site at the Windrow building, the prepared sliced waste will be made into windrow.
  • Windrow Turning

Subsequently at the Windrow building, the windrow undergoes a turning process.
  • Windrow Monitoring

Careful monitoring is performed to ensure the windrow has passed strict requirements. As a result, matured compost that has been approved will be prepared for fine grinding.
  • Fine Grinding / Screening

Matured compost awaits its turn for the grinding process. Once entered into the machine, compost is fine grinded and screened before it is packaged.
  • Packaging Process

The finished product is in its packaging. It is ready for transport to distributors.
