As targets for the diversion of waste streams away from Landfill continue increase, the International community has seen a massive increase in the separation and composting of biodegradable organic waste in recent years.
A key aspect of the composting process is to provide the optimal environment for proper composting to occur, which is attained by the selection of a number of applied technologies, including the use of a fit for purpose compost cover.
We offer our RESPIRA Breathable & Water-Resistant cover in a number of different forms for use within in-vessel and open windrow composting.
Why use a Compost Cover?
- Accelerates the evaporation of excess water from the substrate which maintains the optimum humidity and temperature, thus speeding up the ‘cooking / turnaround’ time and improving the quality of the end product
- Protect your product from rain and surface water infiltration
- Reduces leaching and loss of product
- Easier handling of product during wet periods
