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.
Pictured are Sandy Gray, Technical Director, and Georges Delemontex, Lead Engineer, in front of the freshly loaded composter in Creswick, Victoria.
Please contact our team if you would like to learn more. Make sure to ask about the composter and the benefits they can bring to your council, farm or manufacturing company.

The system in this case study was installed in November 2018 as a 12-month research and development project to establish viability of an anaerobic digestion plant designed to convert dairy effluent to energy and minimise odour.
