SOGESA SpA has awarded ECOMASTER ATZWANGER with the design and construction of the equipment of an aerobic composting system based on the aerated static pile composting technology. The system is installed in an enclosed building, with forced ventilation by means of insufflation of air from the floor. The material, after a mixing and shredding treatment in another section of the pre-existing plant, is deposited in piles by means of a wheeled loader; the piles are arranged parallel to the ventilation piping, which runs underneath the floor. Three piles are formed in each ventilated platform. At the end of the biological treatment cycle, the material is collected by wheeled loader and transported to the successive treatment processes. Each pile is served by an insufflation ventilator, that delivers the process air through a duct. The air is sucked from the interior of the building, or from the exterior, according to the phase of the process. The capture of the air is managed by two electronically controlled dampers operated by the control system. The air intake duct is connected to the suction opening of the insufflation ventilator. The ventilator blows the process air into a distribution plenum connected to the PVC piping of the ventilated floor. The flooring is equipped with sumps at the two ends of the ventilated floor. The sumps have manhole that allow for their periodic cleaning. The underground system of pipes allows for the collection and conveying of the waste water to the storage tanks
