Re-engineered Traditional Composting Technology (RTCT)-:
The society may consist of clients that require large scale composting services. These may include large corporations, markets, and educational institutions. In response to these needs, Earth Care Equipments Pvt Ltd has re-engineered their traditional composting technology for the purpose of large scale composting in a manner that is eco-friendly.
The quantity of organic waste that can be composted by the RTCT is in the range of 5MT TO 25MT. This technology is mainly intended for the treatment of solid waste.
The key features of this technology are-:
Its foot print is small.
Its space requirement is relatively small. For instance, the one that can compost10MT of solid organic waste requires about 2000 square feet.
This technology is designed to serve as a complete solution for segregation, shredding and composting of organic waste.
Its operating costs are relatively lower.
It is a micro-organisms based technology.
It is designed to include both air and bio filtration systems.
It also does leachate treatment.
Considering the many different members of the society, it is expected that a lot of organic waste is generated. The waste is bound to differ in terms of quantity and type. It is necessary that the type of machine required to treat the waste is flexible enough to deal with the dynamics of the society. It is therefore not advisable to recommend a particular type or model of a machine for this purpose.
There are various types of machines that the different members of the society can consider in order to deal with their waste management problems. From the small capacity machines that can compost 25 kilograms to large capacity ones that can compost 25MT of organic waste. The KC, KCA, and the RTCT models from Earth Care Equipments Pvt. Ltd are quite popular in the industry.
It is projected that as the needs of the society change, the machine innovators will strive to innovate improved technologies that would match the changes, and consequently meet the needs of the society.
