Project title: Development of a commercial-scale composting drum covered with a semi-permeable membrane
The amount of the support: HUF 199,953,928
Subsidy rate: 74.14%
Presentation of project content:
The aim of the project is to develop an automatic drum composting equipment covered with a closed, semi-permeable membrane, which is suitable for the intensive composting of 500-2000 tons of biodegradable waste with a low dry matter content per year, while using a small amount of auxiliary materials.
Profikomp Környezettechnika Zrt. previously developed a membrane-covered drum composting equipment for residential use. According to the patent research carried out, several technical solutions of the Profikomp Breathing Drum are also unique worldwide, and are under international patent application under the number PCT/HU2020/050048. During the testing of the equipment, it was confirmed that after making the appropriate improvements, a commercial-scale drum composter can also be developed from the existing prototype.
The current residential drum composter is a large-scale prototype of an industrial drum composter (TRL 6) suitable for composting substrates with a low dry matter content, which provides a suitable basis for the development of an industrial-scale market product (TRL 9).
