The Industrial Composting Methods

Compositing process is not limited to the small scale rather it is also opted at the industrial level. The residential modes are quite simple and convenient to be adopted.

But the industrial methods of compositing are very difficult that implies the technologies. These methods are mostly unknown for the novices of the compositing.

As the industrial compositing comprises of the large scale, surely it will be producing the large output to make the soil healthier.

Some of the industrial composting methods are discussed below:

In-Vessel Method:

Closed reactors are used in the in-vessel method. This method is just like doing compositing in the residential scale by the compost bins. But here the sizes of the bins are phenomenal and it contains large tanks and concrete containers. Also the flow of air and amount of water are controlled more effectively in this process.

For complete isolation of the external materials, some companies add the cover layer over the top of the metal tanks or concrete containers that have been used for the compositing. Insects’ infestation and the ventilation are also controlled by layering.

MBS technique:

MBS stands for the mechanical biological treatment system. It helps in sorting the materials by using the composting process. Anaerobic digestion is the scientific term that has been used in replacement of compositing in this method. It is used to sort out the heavy amount of industrial wastes that are poisonous and hazardous for the nature. This technique ensures the biological safety of the environment.

Sheet Composting:

In sheet compositing method the organic material is directly pored over the surface of the soil that needs to be fertilized. The materials mostly used over the soil surface to decay over there and act as mulch are mustard and alfalfa. The draw back of this method is that the nitrogen is being stolen from the soil itself.

This draw back can be eliminated by introduction of the green manure crops over the soil surface that will help the soil to retain the nitrogen. This is the most effective method from all others and ensures the retention of more minerals.

High Fiber Method:

Wales is the high fiber method of industrial composting. It includes the rigorous stirring and distributes the materials throughout the pile. This will improves the aeration and the surface area of the whole compost pile. This compost pile will be comprised of cardboards, newspapers and other types of papers.

It can also be applied on the residential scale but although it requires the supervision of the Wales. All the papers that are not including the poisonous inks will be decomposed by following this method and it is very successful.

ASP Method:

ASP or Aerated Static Pile method is the method that allows the circulation of the air without forced to roll or turn the compost heap. The compost heap is placed on the holed pipings that automatically circulate the air. It is also an effective method in the industrial composting.
