Composting is nature's way of recycling organic waste and enables a 'closed-loop' approach to producing a rich source of organic matter and nutrients for plants and crops.
Wastewise operates three composting facilities processing over 200,000 tonnes per annum of organic waste, including food and garden waste.
- In-vessel composting (IVC) - Willerby (East Yorkshire) and Crewe (East Cheshire)
- Open windrow composting - Esholt (West Yorkshire)
The GICOM IVC tunnels pasteurise and condition organic waste via a forced aerated floor that allows natural microbiological aerobic degradation of the waste to be performed under optimised conditions. The degradation process is therefore faster than conventional composting and significantly less odorous.
Both facilities consist of a waste reception hall and eight enclosed concrete tunnels connected to a highly effective odour abatement system. The IVC process, which lasts for approximately 7 to 10 days, ensures the efficient pasteurisation of the waste prior to a 6 week outdoor maturation process.
At the end of the process, the finished compost is screened into different grades depending on the end market. All Biowise compost based products are certified to BSI PAS 100 and Compost Quality Protocol standards for use in horticulture, agriculture, landscaping and land restoration. Please visit the Products section for more information.
Our composting process is subject to stringent monitoring and testing to ensure compliance with industry standards. This assures the end user that the compost is produced to the highest safety, reliability and quality standards.
