Dirt Hugger Aeration Pad Construction

Client’s Requirements

Dirt hugger was looking to upgrade their existing pipe on grade operation to a below grade aeration system capable of handling a diversity of feedstocks, on a small footprint, and “bootstrap budget.”

Our Solution

GMT provided the design expertise and controls equipment while Dirt Huggers performed the CAD work, construction management, and general contracting. The result was a Turned Aerated Pile (TAP) mass bed pad handling 60,000 tons of Source Separated Organics and countless gallons of liquid waste at an extremely affordable price.

“Green Mountain Technologies offers simple, cost effective solutions that are practical to implement. They’re really there to work with you and make a solution that fits with your site and your process and your feedstocks. They bring a ton of experience to the table, and that balance of cost versus technology…really finding the sweet spot that worked for us and our site.”
