It all starts with the SG ADVANCED COMPOSTING™ Technology Platform
The SG ADVANCED COMPOSTING™ Technology Platform sets the compost industry standard for environmental compliance for air emissions and stormwater. Using our effective technology platform, our clients achieve predictable, repeatable, and reproducible results which minimizes their risk in maintaining regulatory compliance, freeing up resources to focus on other high priority needs.
Covered Aerated Static Piles
Covered Aerated Static Pile (CASP) composting systems offer the best solution to address the primary environmental concerns of air and water pollution - including methane mitigation. CASP is a forced air composting method that uses either positive (pushing) or negative (pulling) air movement that assists in composting, reducing the time to create a finished product.
Our positive aeration systems are also encapsulated under a GORE® Cover, using an aeration and process control system to manage the air input and oxygen levels through a plenum system underneath the pile. Since the air is handled inside a closed system and underneath the pile, the covered system can be more flexible in size and materials. The more advanced positive CASP systems use the GORE® Cover alongside temperature and oxygen sensors to finely tune the composting process for the desired quality end product. Positive CASP systems are ideal for all types of feedstock including food waste, green waste, biosolids, and source separated organics.
GORE® Cover System
The GORE® Cover is centered on membrane laminate technology similar to that of the company’s world-famous GORE-TEX® fabric used in outerwear and footwear. The microporous membrane impacts air permeability and the extraction of moisture during composting – it prevents the compost from becoming too dry or too wet. It allows for an even distribution of air, thus ensuring optimal temperatures are achieved throughout the heaps.
Official certificates and approvals have been granted to the GORE® Cover for:
Delivering “in-vessel” performance (without the need for a building or roofed structure) in the United States and Canada
Meeting strict PFRP and high-quality compost standards
Obtaining Animal By-Product Approval
Meeting strict regulatory emissions compliance standards worldwide.
