It is the result of decades of research and tests based on a system employed for the first time in Perugia in 1988. Since 1996 the Biomax-G® technology has been applied to dozens of facilities in Italy and worldwide.
The automated composting process takes place inside closed reactor-tanks subject to continuous humidity and temperature checks. Above the composting tank there is an overhead travelling crane – the Biomax-G® – supporting auger, which turns the material according to predetermined rates and phases.
Unlike in conventional facilities, the ventilation here takes place through extraction from the bottom of the reactor, with a considerable advantage for process control purposes, the homogeneous distribution of the temperature of the organic material and the overall environmental conditions of the plant.
The biological treatment process produces quality compost and stabilised organic fraction (SOM), which can be used for environmental regeneration purposes and covering landfills.
