In 2001 I started first independent Phase 2 compost production in Russia. In 2012 my facility became the first to produce Phase 3 compost in Russia and CIS. Now this facility successfully produces about 20 000 tons of Phase 3 compost annually.
During years in the mushroom business I’ve built compost and mushroom enterprises and organized production in them.
The best western experts taught me and my chief compost technologist. This knowledge helped me to organized a consulting company engaged in planning, design, construction, technical equipment of compost and mushroom enterprises and the organization of production. I came to the mushroom business from the trading business and it allows me to look at projects both in terms of technology and in terms of economic efficiency.
Now I’ve been working with three new Russian projects with a total annual capacity of 100,000 tons of Phase 3 compost and 30,000 tons of mushrooms. In March 2019, production will begin at the first of these enterprises.
I will be happy to share news about the rapidly growing Russian mushroom industry with Mushroommatter.com readers/subscribers. Hope my experience will be useful in other countries.
