ECS offers two types of aerobic composting systems: In-vessel and Aerated Static Pile (ASP); and two variations on each system type, for a total of four major systems.
All ECS systems have automated aeration control and monitoring; batch and static processes; and biofiltration for controlling odors and VOC & GHG emissions. Every system is designed for compost applications where meeting stringent environmental regulatory requirements are paramount to success. And each system is tailored to meet the needs of your unique site and application. The four major systems are:
ECS System Selection Guide
There are many decisions that go into designing a successful compost facility. Among them is choosing the right process technology for each phase of the process (primary, secondary and curing). Next comes choosing the right options/components for each system (at each phase). These include reversing or single direction aeration; above grade or in-floor aeration distribution; and wireless or wired temperature probes. The relative merit of any process technology should be subjected to a Pro Forma Design Process specific to the intended application.
The general recommendations given below are intended as guidelines for the four major system types. Contact ECS when you have questions.
|System||Range tons/day||Feedstocks||Weather Limits||Environmental Considerations|
|SV Composter||5 to no upper limit||MSW, SSO, BS||None||Excellent control of air emissions, vectors, surface water|
|CV Composter||1 to 50||MSW, SSO, BS||Deep snow||Excellent control of air emissions, vectors, surface water|
|AC Composter||5 to no upper limit||SSO, BS||Deep snow, extremely cold||Very good control of air emissions|
|Standard ASP||5 to no upper limit||SSO, BS||Arid or heavy rains (if no roof)||Good control of air emissions & odors|
