Profikomp®Aerated Windrow System
One of our widely embraced static system technologies involves an aerated windrow setup, enveloped by the ProfiCover® semi-permeable membrane. This innovative approach incorporates forced aeration units that deliver adequate oxygen levels essential for the activity of microorganisms.
The scalable and flexible design allows the technology to handle input capacities ranging from 500 to 300 000 tons per year.
Key Technical Specifications
Semi-permeable membrane cover: ProfiCover® semi-permeable membrane enhances the efficiency of the windrow composting by promoting optimal oxygen exchange while preventing moisture accumulation, resulting in accelerated and controlled composting processes along with reductions of dusts, odors and VOCs up to 95%.
ProfiCover® Placement: Following windrow formation, the ProfiCover® is placed manually for small scale systems or with a winding machine for larger scale systems.
Winding Machine Options: Winding machines come in three versions: wall-mounted, towed, or mobile. These machines are used to secure the ProfiCover® over the windrows.
Active Aeration Units: This setup incorporates active aeration units that ensure a continuous supply of oxygen to microorganisms. The aeration channels are either integrated into the concrete (in-floor) or through above-ground pipes (on-floor).
Windrow Dimensions: Windrows within these systems typically range from 2.5 to 3.5 meters in height, 6.0 to 9.0 meters in width, and 10.0 to 60.0 meters in length. These dimensions are tailored to the specific site and waste volume.
Cost-Effective: Windrow composting offers a cost-effective waste management solution that requires minimal infrastructure and equipment, making it suitable for various budget levels.
Simplicity: The process is straightforward and doesn’t involve complex technology, making it accessible and manageable for a wide range of operators.
Scalability: The system can be scaled up or down depending on waste volume, making it adaptable for different operational sizes.
Low Energy Consumption: Since mechanical turning isn’t required, aerated composting typically has lower energy consumption compared to other composting methods.
