Why is the Advanced Composting System (ACS) with Aeromaster Turners better than static pile composting?

Criterion: Aerated
Static Piles:
& Blending
Thorough mixing and blending of materials does not occur. Thorough mixing and blending occurs enabling interaction of carbon and nitrogen
Aeration Airflow can form channels leaving anaerobic areas. All materials turned have access to oxygen while passing over drum.
positive pressure is used to vent heat, it may be difficult to meet
temp requirements near the pipes.
All materials in row have access to required thermophilic cycle for pathogen and weed seed destruction.
Watering Added to windrow perimeter. Not consistent throughout. Each particle is watered for equal moisturization throughout the row.
Odors Biofilters are frequently utilized to manage odors. Odors in windrows should disappear after 2-3 days.
Typically defines quality in terms of the absence of pathogens. Defines quality in terms of what it does for the soil and plant. Complete laboratory comparisons are encouraged.
Profitability Such facilities are often government operated, as private entities have
difficulty profiting. Compost is often given away. Income is driven
by tipping fees.
Compost is often sold at from two to four times the cost per ton to produce. Income from compost sales can be a significant profit stream because of the product quality.
& Annual Costs
Capital costs for an enclosed facility processing approximately 5,000 tonsper year of wood and yard waste is approximately 2 million to 5 million dollars. Capital costs, not including land, will be decreased by building costs ($75 sq. ft.) in an open facility. Annual operating costs range from $10 to $70 per ton. Aeration pipes may require disposal or recycling.* Capital costs for an enclosed facility with similar tonnage would be in the $400,000 range. Open air facility would be significantly less.
