TURNED AERATED PILE SYSTEMS

TURNED AERATED PILE (TAP)

The Turned Aerated Pile (TAP) is the fastest way to make compost on a large scale. Unlike static piles, turned aerated pile systems are turned 2 to 3 times per week to break up organic material, re-establish porosity and re-wet the compost. Turned aerated pile systems require below grade aeration systems to allow for regular turning without the hassle of re-positioning above grade piping. Green Mountain Technologies specializes in below grade reversing aeration system design. Odors are managed using bio-filters and bio-covers that meet the most stringent air quality regulations. The compact footprint makes it possible to put a facility inside a building and also minimize the stormwater collection requirements for outdoor installations.

CIRCULAR TURNED AERATED PILE (CTAP)

Green Mountain Technologies has developed the patent pending Circular Turned Aerated Pile System or cTAP compost system. A circular design is a more efficient layout for large turned aerated pile systems. The reason is that moving compost towards the center of a circle takes advantage of the volume reduction experienced during composting. As you get closer to the center the area of the rings get smaller at the same rate that the compost is shrinking. This allows a  7-acre cTAP system to process up to 560 tons per day of compostable materials and provides 30% more capacity than a rectangular design. The other big advantage is that your turner never needs to turn around… it just keeps going in a circle. Maximizing your capacity while reducing your labor is what cTAP is all about.
