Tunnel Composting Technology
A large part of what we do is through developing, designing, manufacturing, and operating advanced tunnel facilities for accelerated composting, a process based on computer controlled climatisation units.
WCT’s tunnel composting technology permits the controlling of temperature, moisture and oxygen levels of the organic waste being composted.
The resulting product is of a much higher standard than what it would have been if it was done through other means such as open windrow. In fact, our use of tunnel composting technology allows us to offer a compost of a quality that’s hard to find anywhere else in Australia . Not only is the final product superior, it’s also made in a much faster time.
Part of the genius of tunnel composting is that it also makes it possible to compost a broad range of organic waste , even difficult to handle materials and highly odorous ones. Because the tunnels are a completely closed system, and include humidifiers/scrubbers and biofilters, there are no odour issues affecting the surrounding community.
A Quality Product
Due to nutrient and contaminant issues, green and food wastes are processed separately in our composting tunnels. .
Because of its high nitrate levels, food waste makes composts that suits broad acre farmers or backyard vegie growers while landscape gardeners, who are more interested in soil structure and colour, make use of our green waste composts.
At our composting facility in Shepparton, Victoria we currently process 10,000 tonnes of green and food waste material each year which is turned into 3,000 tonnes of quality compost.
We can organise delivery of our composts and mulch to anywhere in Victoria.
To ensure WCT consistently delivers sustainable waste management solutions and superior products we adhere to the highest of standards for product quality, work place safety and environmental management.
WCT has certification for AS/NZS ISO9001:2008, AS/NZS 14001:2004 and AS/NZS 4801:2001 . The company also observes Australian standard 4454 which requires compost samples be laboratory tested for contaminates and pathogens, so to ensure our compost is free of any threat.
We have been awarded for our innovation and industry leadership, most recently with the Environment Protection Authority awarding WCT with the Environmental Improvement Award in 2014.Be it about organic waste composting or our recycling services, WCT can assist with any of your related requirements.
