Zero Waste Energy, LLC (ZWE), a leading waste industry company specializing in recyclable commodity recovery combined with green energy production, has recently acquired the exclusive North American licence for in-vessel composting (IVC) technologies, developed by its German partner, Eggersmann Anlagenbau.
ZWE will combine this IVC technology with the previously acquired licence for the Kompoferm patented dry anaerobic digestion technology from Eggersmann.
In-vessel composting is another alternative employed to accomplish the natural aerobic break down of biodegradable waste to create a high-quality compost product. The IVC Plus system, developed by Eggersmann, is a break-through in-vessel composting technology that requires 50 per cent less cycle time than traditional aerobic compost processes.
With ZWE's patented IVC Plus System, the active compost process and maturation period can be accomplished in less than 28 days. At the end of this period, compost is ready to bag for retail sales or sold in bulk to end users. IVC Plus has many other advantages over current composting systems, including a much smaller footprint, lower infrastructure, and lower operating costs per tonne processed.
"We are very pleased to acquire the IVC Plus system," says Eric Herbert, ZWE CEO. "The combination of this new IVC technology for high quality compost production and our Kompoferm AD process for renewable energy creates a complete organics strategy that can be deployed in urban environments at very competitive costs."
