Client’s Requirements

Boost Organics, a composting company in British Columbia (BC), Canada, contacted GMT to discuss the construction of a new facility. Located in Abbotsford, BC, the customer planned to mix a high volume of food waste from the Vancouver metro area with cow manure and green waste from on-site farming operations to make a high-quality compost product.

Our Solution

To process these feedstocks, GMT designed an 8-zone Covered Aerated Static Pile (cASP) system within an open sided building. The system currently uses positive aeration but is designed for the possibility of negative aeration in the future. GMT designed the facility, created construction drawings, provided blowers, WebMACS controls equipment, and consultation during construction and start-up. The end result, a cutting edge satellite facility that reduced trucking times from Vancounver and transformed on-site agricultural waste into a high value finished compost.
