Windrow composting with membrane

Windrow composting with the use of membrane

In order to avoid odour emissions you can use a semi-permeable membrane with a static rotting technology. This needs to be combined with a positive aeration system. Due to the effort manipulating the membrane, it is widely uneconomic to turn the windrow periodically.

The semi-permeable membrane can considerably contribute to reduce odours. The odour emissions and dust emissions (bio aerosols) during the turning and manipulating process cannot be avoided by the membrane.
