Client’s Requirements:
Dirt hugger was looking to upgrade their existing pipe on grade operation to a below grade aeration system capable of handling a diversity of feedstocks, on a small footprint, and “bootstrap budget.”
  • Low cost
  • Flexible design
  • Below grade
  • Automated temperature control

Our Solution:
GMT believed in Dirt Hugger’s mission and agreed to partner with their staff engineers. GMT provided the design expertise and controls equipment while Dirt Huggers performed the CAD work, construction management, and general contracting. The result was a Turned Aerated Pile (TAP) mass bed pad handling 60,000 tons of Source Separated Organics and countless gallons of liquid waste at an extremely affordable price.

Client Feedback:
"We loved our experience working with Green Mountain Technologies! We really respect and like Michael and Jeff, they have a ton of depth and experience in this field. We like how they offer very simple, very cost effective solutions that are practical to implement and flexible.”
