Compost Covers

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
  • Controls moisture loss due to effective of sun and wind
  • Reduces wind-blown nuisance
  • Reduces odour by more than 90%
  • Provides a more pleasing aesthetic appearance for your local community
