Why In-vessel Composting?
In-Vessel Composting: An industrial form of composting biodegradable waste in a controlled manner has many advantages:
But before jumping to the advantages let us consider the alternatives:
Many Local Autorities compost green waste on low cost “on farm” systems. It is true, bio-degradable waste material once partially degraded can be called compost – but frankly raw ex-green waste is a very poor compost. Often the Local Authority then struggles with what to do with it.
Here are just some of the advantages
Enables more material to be diverted from landfill
Enables safe composting of material that contains food waste
Co-mingled collections are more cost effective than separate food waste collection.
The technology is proven and stringent standards can be set for operators.
The end result is a high quality compost that completes the recycling circle and has a value and benefit to the environment.
