Windrow Composting Techniques for Waste Reduction

Aerated windrow composting is ideal for large volumes of waste, typically generated by entire communities or cities and collected by the local governments or high volume food-processing businesses. This process yields a significant amount of compost that is available at a low cost, too.

The Windrow Method

The process involves the formation of long rows, also known as windrows — hence the name! Organic waste is organized into rows of piles (windrows) and they are aerated periodically — either manually or mechanically by turning the piles. The ideal height of the pile is between 4 to 8 feet and the width is around 14 to 16 feet. The large pile size helps to generate ample heat and maintain temperatures. But it is also small enough to promote oxygen flow to the core of the windrow.

The technique helps to convert large volumes of diverse wastes like liquids, animal by-products (fish and poultry waste), yard trimmings, grease, and more into compost.

The Processing

At Mailhem, we help convert waste into compost using windrow composting processes. During this method, materials that are under 100 mm are unloaded in the composting yard. Here, they undergo microbial culture. The windrows are formed every week and then mixed thoroughly to homogenize the materials with the help of excavators. The degraded material is vibro screened to produce fine quality compost, which is supplied to fertilizer companies, including RCF & Zuari, and local farmers as well.
