Efficient compost process
According to a report from 2005, by Avfall Sverige – Swedish Waste Management, the compost process is often looked upon as materials handling rather than a process for degradation. A conclusion in the report is that the waste management industry most likely would gain by developing a more thorough process-orientation, to optimize composting and reach a higher level of efficiency.*
QuantorXL® Drum Composting is exactly that type of process-oriented composting method. It is not only about quantity, but also about quality. You get the possibility to manage the process in a closed system and can quickly produce a high quality end product.
Other methods, such as open air windrows do not give the same possibilities to control and produce a homogenous compost. Solutions that aim to manage the process in a better way, like tunnel or reactor composting, on the other hand, require huge scale and large investments. Problems with odour often make it necessary to locate composting plants in quite remote areas.

QuantorXL® is designed to offer economies of scale and efficiency, but at a moderate level of investment. It does not require large amounts of waste to become profitable. The completely contained degradation process minimize odour problems, and makes it possible to locate the operation relatively close to urban areas. These factors combined lead to a reduction of costly transports which of course also benefits the environment. Approval for all types of waste means that you can offer a complete solution for waste in a certain area, thereby avoiding parallel, inefficient, systems for waste handling.
Double sources of revenue
When composting with QuantorXL® you can count on revenue from two sources. Fees paid by those who leave the waste as well as the sale of the finished compost product. As there is no need to reject any type of waste you can always utilize the full capacity.
The produced compost soil is of the highest quality, free from pathogens and parasites, and can be sold freely on the market as a soil conditioner and fertilizer.
