AERATED STATIC PILE (ASP)
Faster Composting On a Smaller Footprint
Aerated Static Piles (ASP) are a simple and efficient way to compost challenging feedstocks like food waste, biosolids and manures. Well-designed ASP systems manage the oxygen and temperature levels in the piles to speed up the process while reducing material handling costs and controlling odors. We offer a variety of ASP systems for the full spectrum of composting facilities and budgets.
Half the Footprint
Half the Operating Cost
How It Works
Compost feedstocks are blended for proper bulk density and moisture content, then formed into windrows or a massbed over the aeration zones. The high aeration system keeps the composting microbes happy and hot for 15 days before the material is irrigated and turned into a low aeration system for another 15 days of active composting before curing.
Below Grade ASP Systems
As operators ourselves, we know how to design facilities that work without getting overly complicated. With this at heart, we created our two anti-clogging aeration systems; the concrete aeration beam and high air sparger. Both systems are simple to install and can work in positive, negative or reversing aeration.
Pre-Engineered ASP Systems
For those on a budget, we offer a variety of pre-engineered and pipe on grade composting solutions. Each of these include GMT’s WebMACS control system, temperature probes, and blowers. These solutions require minimal site work, however they cost more to operate.
Radial ASP (rASP)
We know that the most expensive part of running a compost facility is labor. With this in mind we designed and patented the rASP, a novel solution that uses a telescoping conveyor to move material directly from the discharge of your conveyor into an aeration bay, saving operators as much as 40% on operating costs.
ASP Facility Case Studies
“Green Mountain Technologies has proven their expertise and professionalism, and they are always just a phone call away and offer their assistance promptly. Allwood Recyclers, Inc. was an existing facility for over 20 years prior to working with GMT to design our ASP system…I was very impressed with how they worked with our challenges and made adjustments to their design to make everything work for our facility…I have enjoyed working with the GMT team and would recommend them to anyone looking for a composting system design.”
