A total of 16 reactors designed and constructed during the realization of two government-granted research projects are used for the analyzes of composting. Resulting from their unique construction, these reactors allow to conduct research on composting and storage of different substrates in precisely controlled conditions. They enable the measurement and of temperature at different depths of the chamber with automatic logging at set intervals. Gas emissions can also be analyzed with the use of a certified gas analyzer (GA5000, Geotech) or a gas chromatograph. Three types of liquid effluents can also be collected for analysis – condensates pulled down by gravity, and condensates from the lid and from exit gas condenser.
Precise modeling of the composting process is possible as all the research can be facilitated with physicochemical and biological analyzes of the substrate that undergoes composting.
