The composting method has been around for some time, however it has been developed into an industrial process to deal with organic wastes on a wider scale and controlled basis. The process works by using naturally occurring aerobic microbes to break down the waste in large enclosed vessels that achieve temperatures of 70 degrees and upwards, this is required for total pathogen kill and is a strict criteria for Animal By Products Regulations (ABPR).
We have designed and engineered our own vessels which are contained in double skinned walls and require a higher degree of regulation and monitoring. These vertical vessels are fed through internal reception and can deal with ABPR to CAT3 which we are fully licensed through DEFRA to accept and process.
We have separate vessel systems for source segregated material and non-source segregated material to cater for the many different and regulated waste streams received onsite. Both systems create a fully recovered and well manufactured compost and soil enhancer. The source segregated system is available for customers who have the ability to segregate their waste streams, ensuring a clean feedstock. This system creates a high end compost product to PAS100 standard which allows us to manufacture a grade of material that is suitable for residential, commercial and agricultural use.
The non-source segregated system, the larger of the systems is ideal for customers with a varied waste stream, containing a range of contaminants. This material requires a very high standard of processing and treatment onsite to ensure a higher grade of end use. This produces an end product that is suitable for farmland and crop growing amongst other uses, however it is managed and applied for on batch, under Environmental Deployment.
