GICOM In-Vessel Composting Plants

Input Materials

 

Composting / MSW

Composting period 5-7 days
Dry matter content 80-85%
Mass reduction 35%
No pathogens  
Odour free  

Handling

The MSW is screened at 70 mm and brought into the tunnel without the need to improve the structure. The handling takes place automatically and as an alternative, it can be done with a loader. There are 3 possible goals:

  • Production of fuel (RDF)
  • Production of compost (soil improves, landscaping)
  • Production of first class compost (gardening, nursing)

Retention time in tunnel depends on the set goal.

 

Composting / Biological Drying of Sludges

Composting period 7-14 days
Dry matter content sludge 18-25%
Dry matter content compost 60%
Overall mass reduction composting 85%
Organic matter reduction 60%
No pathogens  

Handling

The sludge is mixed with f.e woodchips, sawdust and freshmade compost to improve the structure. The handling of the sludge mixture is done automatically, as an alternative it can be done with a frontend loader. The compost can be used for agricultural purposes and landscaping or as a daily and/or top cover on landfills.

 

Agricultural Waste

Composting period 5-7 days
Dry matter content 80-90%
No pathogens  
Odour free  

Handling

On a daily basis the manure is transported into the tunnel where the composting process takes place. Depending on the type and the composition of the manure, one can add a processing step to the process (for example mixing).

The exhaust air coming from the process needs to be cleaned with a (chemical) scrubber and a biofilter.
