The purpose of composting is to decompose organic substances as efficiently and odourlessly as possible, to convert them into a stable, plant-friendly, high-quality humus product in a controlled rotting process that is as efficient, short and low-emission as possible.
Energy from organic waste: Fermentation is the most economically and ecologically viable treatment method for a range of organic waste. Clean energy is produced from the decomposed organic material and compost and liquid fertiliser from the fermentation residue. But packaging, contaminants and inert waste prevent direct introduction into the fermentation process.
Mechanical treatment as the foundation for recycling: The reuse of materials and energy from waste is central to modern waste management. The foundation for it is laid by mechanical preparation in the form of waste splitting. In it, recyclables are recovered from the waste stream and high-yield combustibles are separated out for further processing as refusederived fuels (RDF). The remaining residue fraction can be stabilized and then landfilled.
