ECSAB provides different small scale, bio-waste treatment systems with the goal to turn the waste into a profitable resource.
ECSAB specializes in drum composting. QuantorXL® is the first composting system in Sweden that has been approved for composting manure, as according to EU regulations for animal by-products.
QuantorXL® – composting in a rotary drum – is a patented, process-oriented method that brings a holistic approach to composting and generates profit. QuantorXL® has been validated to achieve full hygienization when all the material in the composting drum reaches a minimum temperature of 52°C for at least 13 hours without interruption.
The capability to process all different types and combinations of organic waste makes QuantorXL® extremely flexible. It can, for example, be used to compost:
– Manure from all types of animals
– Sewage sludge and digestate
– Vegetable waste etc., from the food trade
– Biowaste from households and restaurants
– Residue from fish industry
Simplicity in handling – Fully automated, standardized process
A QuantorXL® Drum composting system is fully automated and consists of a receiving container for waste and structural materials, a complete feeding- and discharge systems, and the composting drum. In the process, material is continuously passing through, i.e. not in batches. The workload is about one hour a day, receiving material, creating a good mix with structural material, checking moistness and filling the feeding system. The amount of preparatory work depends on the desired composition of the end product, and its area of use. The actual composting takes place inside the rotating drum, which is insulated and aerated by a fan. No addition of chemicals or other matter is required.
The plant is reliable and easy to manage, and the process can be easily monitored, optionally by remote control. Thanks to the automated system no staff or machinery need to work in the compost during the main process, when conditions otherwise wear heavily on both people and equipment.
