The Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre (OVWRC) in Pembroke, Ontario has been
composting green waste amended food waste in an ECS Containerized
In-Vessel system since 2001. The original CompTroller™ 1.0 automated aeration

OK OK, I know it sounds like I’m repeating myself here; and it’s really true. We have another municipal client that had no real previous experience composting their biosolids, and now they are a big success, with their customers wanting their compost product, and the state of Michigan pointing to them as an excellent example of how to recycle biosol...

Several of our biosolids composting clients are both municipally operated Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP) and first time composters with no previous experience. We do a good job of training our clients on how to use ECS systems; teaching them the fundamentals of composting, and providing them with a range of mix recipes. During the first couple...
