Composting is a method that managed by human control which microorganism break down plant and animal materials into more valuable forms suitable for application to soil. Then evolution happen when research show how earthworm play important role in agriculture field which produce better compost called vermicompost. Vermicomposting is a process whereby earthworm is used to convert all type of biodegradable waste such as kitchen waste into nutrient rich organic fertilizer which contain in the excreta of the earthworm. Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) is generating leave wastes at a high volume daily. There is significant potential of carrying vermicomposting for UTP’s leave waste to reduce operation cost in handling waste which UTP usually hired contractors to disposed the leaves. The study aims to identify rapid conversion of leaves waste into vermicompost using hot compost method. Literature review on vermicomposting serve as fundamental and guideline to this project. Discussion about vermicomposting and suggested methodology that have been done by researchers helping this project to run well. At the end of this project, expecting same nutritional vermicompost is produce compare to market vermicompost and to identify rapid conversion using hot compost method.
