Client’s Requirements

To help California meet SB1383, Recology went out looking for a solution to help them process the greater Sacramento regions organic Waste Stream. At 2,000 Tons per day, it was essential that the design was proven, simple to operate, and highly scalable. Additionally, being close to marshland and within California’s stringent regulatory environment meant that the design had to meet some of America’s most stringent Air and Water regulations.

Our Solution

GMT designed an award winning, 48-zone aeration system with below grade spargers and WebMACS controls. The zero discharge facility leveraged existing grade and equipment to control stormwater and reduce cost.  During the multi-year design and construction effort GMT assisted the client with permitting, facility layout, integration of mechanical and electrical equipment, construction, and operator training. Since being constructed the facility has earned multiple accolades including the National Waste & Recycling Association’s “Organics Management Facility of the Year Award.”

“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.”
