2.Technical description and use #

Figure 1 shows Solar Composting Unit SMEC-2/3/6. Biowaste is introduced into the composting unit via the inlet (1) on the greenhouse cover (2). Biowaste is directed fed into the composting tank (3) where the composting of the biowaste takes place (thermophilic phase). The turning and movement of the material within the fermentation tank takes place using a horizontal intermittent screw (4). Parallel to the composting tank there is a screw conveyor lift (5) through which the material circulates from the front to the back of the composting tank. A diversion gate (6) regulates whether the material will return to the composting tank or pass into the inspection chamber (7) where maturation can be carried out. The maturation area consists of a fast composting system (8) on top of a conveyor platform (9). Composting odors are treated using a deodorizing ventilation system (10) which carries air through a biofilter with compost filler. The deodorizer absorbs the odors of the composter before they are released to the atmosphere through a chimney (11). The mechanical operations of the unit are controlled by a control panel (12) in the inspection chamber (7). For the safety of personnel, an emergency button is available on the control panel. Pressing the emergency stop button stops all the functions of the composter.
