Industrial Duty Composting Solutions Top 10 Benefits
# 1 HIGH PERFORMANCE: Our Forced Air Delivery System is responsible for turbo-‐charging waste decomposition with such eﬃciency that huge amounts of organic matter can be converted in DAYS to clean, odor free compost. Systems are engineered for industrial duty waste management applications capable of processing either large organic matter such as large animals, or millions of pounds of commercial waste into clean, odor free compost in an environmentally safe process.
#2 Cost Eﬀectiveness: Ongoing operation of the ACT Composting systems requires no fossil fuels, chemicals, and very limited power consumption. Systems are built with compatibility to standard farm or industrial equipment, and for operation by existing staﬀ personnel. On-‐going variable operational costs are very minimal.
# 3 Built to Scale: As a customer you don’t have to buy a ﬁxed unit size or conﬁguration, as systems are individually sized to meet the requirements of each customer’s need. Our systems can even start small and expand with add-‐on capacity easily adapted to any installation with additional site build-‐out. ACT has entry level systems of single bin “kit” installations up to custom built, turnkey commercial systems processing over 2.2 million pounds of waste per year!
# 4 Flexibility of Loading Rate: A huge beneﬁt to the ACT composting solution is the ability to have virtually unlimited (limited only by the total size of your installation) ﬂexibility of daily feedstock loading rates. Many user applications for our commercial composting solutions often report having huge variances in the pounds of feedstock that require processing on a daily basis, and our systems oﬀer complete user option to the system loading. This is a most signiﬁcant advantage over many other waste management options.
# 5 Low Odor Operation: Our Forced Air and Closed Loop Leachate Control systems, combined with ACT’s recipe for daily operation make for a clean, low odor installation. Many customers report that this is one part of their ACT solution that is a pleasant surprise as they did not expect a system of this type, handling the volume of waste being processed, to being so odor free, especially as compared to other waste solutions they have experienced.
# 6 Ec0-‐friendly Operations: The ACT composting systems operate in a contained bin with a Closed Loop Leachate Control System that keeps the entire composting environment sealed from runoﬀ and groundwater contamination. As a 100% natural process with no added chemicals or requirements for fossil fuels, the ACT system contributes signiﬁcantly to Environmental Stewardship, and in fact produces clean, re-‐useable compost that is nutrient rich and stable for post processing applications such as landscaping, soil enrichment, erosion control, etc.
# 7 Proven Process, Proven Company: ACT has been building high performance, commercial composting systems for over 10 years. Our numerous installations across a variety of industrial applications such as food service waste processing, animal mortality management at poultry, ﬁsh, and swine farms, applications for animal road kill processing, etc. provide the proof of design, construction, and after the sale service so important for high production installations. Our complete process, from design, construction, innovation in technology, and operational guidelines provide the foundation for a successful installation of a composting waste management solution. From our entry level “kits” to our turnkey industrial solution, you get the full beneﬁt of our deep applications experience with each conﬁguration.
# 8 Simple to Operate: ACT systems are super easy to operate, with conﬁgurations sized for use with common farm or industrial equipment, bin doors that fully retract for cleaning and daily operations, unattended daily operations mode, no hazardous fuels or chemicals to process, and a short operators recipe guidebook. The systems operate in all climates: cold, hot, dry, and humid. For an industrial process, it can’t get much easier!
# 9 Complete Pathogen Kill: The Forced Air ACT system produces consistent operational temperatures above 150° F for at least 15 consecutive days. These high temperatures are only possible in the continuously aerobic environment created in our proprietary forced air systems, and produce increased microbial activity which leads to complete pathogen kill, and clean disease free system output. Our systems have been operationally approved by many Federal, State, and Local agencies for compliance
# 10 Farm Subsidy Funding: For farm and agricultural applications where Department of Agriculture, NRCS, or other regulated approvals are required, you will ﬁnd ACT systems already conﬁrmed and approved for design, process, and environmental conformity. This means that if there are “Cost Share” funding opportunities available for your location and industry, that it is most likely that the ACT Forced Air Composting solutions have been approved and accepted for participation into this program. This could therefore provide signiﬁcant funding to defer up-‐front expense of a waste system installation, and also provide the conﬁdence in knowing the systems have been fully reviewed and approved for use under strict governmental guidelines.
