In February, Seattle-based Impact Bioenergy completed a distribution agreement with Montreal-based Vertal Inc., manufacturer of the CityPod on-site composting system. CityPod comes in four sizes ranging from 720 to 5,850 pound-capacity per week, at a rated 42 days of process residence time. The systems are ideal for restaurants, campuses, resorts, hospitals, casinos, conference venues and other facilities where zero-waste practices are in place and compost can be used beneficially.
The Alma Mater Society (AMS) of University of British Columbia (UBC) has installed a model M CityPod composter, as part of the construction of a new SUB (Student Union Building) “student Nest” which will open its doors in March 2015. Built to LEED Platinum standards, the UBC SUB is operated by the student-run Alma Mater Society and was largely funded by students. Once opened, the Nest will include a three-storey climbing wall, daycare, rooftop garden, restaurants and expanded area for student clubs.
The Big Hanna Composter is designed for simple, safe, efficient local food waste composting and is available in five different models for processing from 75 to 1,200 kgs per week. These in-vessel units compost meat, fish, dairy products, garden waste and most other organic matter.
Designed for simple, safe local compost-ing of food and garden waste, the Big Hanna composter is loaded at the front and compost is automatically discharged to the rear. Big Hanna is manufactured in stainless steel, and includes the option of a hopper inlet, with or without a shredder. These units can be fed with various leftover compostable matter, can be used both indoors and outdoors, work silently and are equipped with odour control features. Various sizes are available.
