A Gaia EnviroTech High Speed Composter was recently procured and installed for trials by Hepburn Shire Council at their Creswick Transfer Station as part of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning New Energy Jobs Fund. Shortly following installation of the High-Speed Composter, the unit has demonstrated that it can achieve pasteurisation. This is required to kill off pathogens and allow the material to be utilised to re-carbonise soils. Gaia EnviroTech will continue to work with Hepburn Shire Council to optimise the system and maximise composted product quality.
The in-vessel system accelerates the composting process to produce nutrient rich compost from organic matter faster than traditional methods. It suits clients whose primary waste streams include FOGO (food organics and garden organics) and larger waste vegetation. The system is designed for ease of use and can be combined with a Gaia EnviroTech Anaerobic Digester to treat the majority of organic wastes from councils, food manufacturers, restaurants and hospitality venues, etc.
