The dramatic cost increases in resin pipe, stainless steel and fuel inspired the development of this “pipe-less” aeration floor, called the CompDog. The design relies on the structural holding capacity of compost and a removable and reusable form. Raw compost is placed on top of the CompDog and allowed to settle for 12 to 24 hours. Then the form is removed and the void space (tunnel) that remains is used as an aeration plenum, replacing the need for resin pipe above-grade. CompDogs are designed to withstand the harsh environment of com-posting sites, and are constructed of heavy coated and double-walled polyester material. They can be made to any length up to 90 feet long. Units eliminate resin based above-grade pipe, and the associated labour and maintenance involved with its process. Since the Comp-Dog is removed with the first 24 hours of operation, there are no pipes in the way when it’s time to move a pile.

Achieving bioenergy’s full potential

Talk to someone not in the waste industry and you'll find they're stunned that in 2019, we're still burning and burying waste, or even just allowing it to rot on the forest or orchard floor, or on the farmer's field. These methods result in losing the valuable energy found in waste - energy which can both help to relieve the pressure on rapidly diminishing fossil fuels and help reverse the harmful trends of global warming and climate change. Climate change is no longer a problem for the next generation. We simply must do better and do better now.
