Composting site adds self-sealing roof during site expansion

A lifting and self-sealing roof is being added to West London Compostings (WLC) site off the M40 in Uxbridge as part of expansion work to double the sites capacity and manage order peaks and troughs more effectively. The roof works with high-tech aeration and biofilters which control odours from the process, and is part of a comprehensive New Era In-Vessel Composting System recently patented by consultant and designer the Composting Company. However, WLC could not make use of the whole system due to space restrictions on its existing site. A complete system includes drive-through in-vessel tunnels which make ABPR compliance easier to manage. Work at the site is due to be completed in September and will increase the companys processing capacity to 100,000 tonnes per year. More orders for the system are on the Composting Companys books and managing director Chris Field added: Cumberlows has just bought this new system, so its site will be the first to use the drive-through tunnel design. The tunnels are designed to prevent cross-contamination of material at different stages of the process. The system has been in development for two years - we didnt just sit behind a PC and design something, it was about us operating such facilities ourselves. Creating the system and then marketing it was a natural progression because we are operators ourselves, so it is part of massive company growth. Signing deals for other companies to use this system signifies the next phase in the business. Image: Reception building area during site expansion work
