McGill Composting Technologies
Design-build-operate services for advanced, high-rate package plants
Recycling high volumes of organic waste requires a reliable, tightly-controlled technology. McGill composting technologies deliver fast throughput without sacrificing environmental protection, performance or profitability.
6 reasons to consider McGill composting technologies
- Steel and concrete construction — our physical plant delivers decades of reliability with minimal upkeep
- Contained and computerized process — a controlled process is an efficient process
- Industrial scale — a proven technology for mainstream waste management
- All organics at any moisture level — consolidate multiple facilities under one roof
- Low operating cost — no windrow turners, no leachate to collect and manage, off-the-shelf components
- Profitable — we are a commercial company operating multiple facilities using this technology. If there were a more efficient, cost-effective technology or facility design on the market, we’d be using it.
Composting is a science, not art
For people who understand the science, there is no “art” to composting. It’s about biochemistry and the delivery of moisture, temperature, oxygen and food — in the right balance — to create and maintain a processing environment that will encourage the proliferation of the specific microbial populations responsible for biodegradation.
Everything at McGill facilities — from building design to engineering to operations management — supports the process.
This science-centric approach delivers rapid breakdown of compounds and accelerated stabilization for food waste, sludges, woody materials and other organics. It also ensures a high level of environmental protection and produces compost products with the consistent quality demanded by top-dollar compost markets. With McGill Composting Technologies™ you get it all in one neat, profitable package complete with evergreen support:
- Systems designed to meet your needs
- Easy operation and no-hassle maintenance with off-the-shelf parts
- No leachate generation and no windrow turners
- 1/10th the space of a windrow operation with the same throughput
Composting technologies for the real world
We move ~500,000 tons a year through our own composting facilities using the same technology and practices that come with your license. Everything included in your package has been installed, tested, tweaked and streamlined under real world operating conditions on all types of material. From floor systems to procedures for loading bays, McGill’s 25 years of profitable composting experience is an integral part of every licensing package.
Can we build one for you?
McGill’s composting facility designs and technologies are available for licensing by third-party facility owners. These processing and production facilities are specifically designed for the management and recycling of high volume, biodegradable waste streams. Process goals may include biological drying, volume reduction and/or premium compost manufacture.
Designs offer a high level of environmental security for the most challenging organic wastes. The process is fast and reliable. Combined with its operations protocols, McGill composting facilities deliver consistent, premium product quality batch after batch.
Build small now to grow later. Plants are pre-engineered to reduce development time and save money. We can support your development efforts or develop the project for you turnkey. You decide what you need and when you need it:
- Facility design and technology licensing
- Public-Private Partnerships (P3)
- Composting systems with superior environmental protection as inherent design elements
- One process, one facility, all biodegradables, including biodegradable plastics
- Premium compost products with real market value
- An additional high-value revenue stream for AD/bioenergy facilities
- Optional McGill facility management, intake and/or compost marketing and sales
McGill’s industrial solutions and composting technologies are customized to fit your site, your volume and your budget.
Compost sales strategies customized for your locale
Why make an agricultural-grade product if the nearest farm is 50 miles away? Can you sell high volumes of landscape-quality compost if you are far from an urban center? We know how to balance available feedstocks with local product demand to craft a product mix that’s right for your region. Grow market presence with customized sales strategies designed for your community … including McGill-managed programs based on revenue-sharing.
