The Horizontal Composting Unit is 32.5m long x 8m wide x 2m deep and is a completely controlled composting system, with lids and internal drainage.
Your Foodwaste is mixed with Greenwaste (plants and shrubs), and loaded into the HCU. The mixture is hot composted through a natural process, the temperature inside the composting piles reaches up to 65°C. Over 12 – 14 weeks of processing the mix is turned regularly by our digger and turns into Superfood Compost.
The movable lids make it possible to manage the temperature inside the HCU, and the internal drainage system catches any leachate from the compost. This leachate is recycled through the system.
