GreenAgro Projects B.V. has years of experience with the construction of composting facilities for phase I, II, and III.
Substrate preparation bunkers
During the traditional substrate preparation process, high concentrations of odor components are given off. Because of the tightening environmental laws, indoor substrate preparation on aerated floors is becoming the norm. Additional advantages of indoor substrate preparation are that the air handling can be automated, the process goes faster and the quality of the compost is better.
Our facilities have been specially developed to comply with the strictest requirements. There are different possibilities: you can choose an open or a closed bunker, a water-recycling system, and, if desired, you can reduce ammonia emissions.
The air conditioning, with regard to oxygen and temperature, will be regulated perfectly by our air-handling system. Our own air-handling system is controlled by a computer that has been specially designed by us.
Years of experience have taught us that for the construction of composting tunnels it is best to choose RVS sandwich panels. The biggest advantage of these panels it that they have an optimal insulation coefficient. The floor is insulated on the inside with five-centimeter-thick extruded polystyrene sheets. The panel connections get a three-layer-thick internal sealant and the ceiling-wall-floor and corner connections are sealed with flexible synthetic membranes. A massive steel frame between the walls makes sure the building can withstand the pressure of the compost. The result is a very strong, fully sealed and optimally insulated tunnel that is perfect for producing compost. We are also able to supply all the necessary accessories and equipment, such as the pulling and gliding nets, the pulling winch, the head-filling machine, the hopper, and the conveyor belt.
GreenAgro has developed a computerized air-handling unit which ensures the optimal control of the climate in the tunnels.
