Our “recipe” for High Performance, Forced-‐Air Industrial Composting
ACT Recipe for Industrial Composting; One Step First: Your site! A prerequisite is to select and build out a bin conﬁguration to meet your waste management volume requirements. ACT engineers and designs a bin unit that is 10’ wide x 12’ long x 6’ tall to house the Forced-‐Air system and composting system elements. This “bin” becomes the Management Unit for the actual composting process, and to hold the waste being processed. There are many site design options shown throughout the website.
It is this Simple! Put in Sawdust Filter on Bin Floor 2. Start Loading waste, from back to front. Turn on Forced-‐Air system 3. Cover waste with C:N mix 1.
