As an operator, your challenge is to keep regulators, neighbors and compost users happy with your facility. The CCS is designed to help you succeed. Composting takes place in controlled batches with airtight vessels (CompTainers™) that can be moved and emptied by roll-off trucks. Each CompTainer is closely controlled to optimize decomposition, meet regulatory requirements and minimize odors. The unique aeration system can integrate up to 50 CompTainers into a single system. Add a small building for receiving and mixing plus a biofilter to remove odors, and you have a completely enclosed compost system at a fraction of the cost of other in-vessel systems.
Composting in roll-off containers allows enormous flexibility in system design and operation. The same CompTainer module can be used to compost from 2 to 50 tons per day. If odor and process control are concerns, then the CCS is the technology you need.The Containerized Compost System™ (CCS) composts sewage, septage, and other putresible organic materials in an entirely enclosed environment. Featuring a sophisticated process control system (CompDAC’s), the CCS facilitates natural degradation processes to convert Class B pathogenic waste into safely disposable and marketable Class A compost. Comprised of a mixer, conveyor, and computer-controlled bioreactors, the CCS handles waste from its raw or treated form to its final curing stage. Green Mountain Technologies’ airtight bioreactors provide highly efficient aerobic composting as well as cost-effective odor control, leachate containment, and waste conversion. Because the bioreactors are roll-off vessels that can be run individually or in parallel, the CCS can be sized to fit facilities processing one to 100 tons of sludge per day.
The integration of sophisticated process control capability with practical design concepts allows GMT to provide the most affordable in-vessel composting system on the market today. The modular design means that facilities can initiate their CCS with only one CompTainer™ if they choose, and then bring more into the system as demand grows. This modularity offers the benefit of minimizing up-front capital investment while ensuring that capacity can grow to meet demand. The modular design also makes the CCS extremely flexible in terms of responding to problematic batches of compost and peaks in processing demand.
Another feature minimizing start-up costs is the compatibility of the CCS with non-specialized equipment. The CompTainers™ fit any standard cable-lift (roll-off) truck. Similarly, any manufacturer can supply the wheel-loaders and screener. The CCS is proven effective in all weather conditions, even in extreme winter cold. The efficiency and year-round performance of the CCS ensures maximum cost recovery.
CCS systems are typically used at biosolids or food waste municipality sites.

The CompTainer is an airtight stainless steel vessel for high-rate composting. Two sizes are available with 40 or 50 cubic yards of composting capacity. The patented aeration floor evenly distributes pressurized air while collecting and storing leachate.
