Composting uses natural aerobic processes.
Composting uses natural aerobic processes to enable green waste to break down producing a high quality compost material which can be used to improve the quality and nutrient content of soil in agriculture or recreational areas.
Enovert operates two composting sites in Gloucestershire, which process a range of green waste materials including leaves, grass clippings, trees, shrubs and weeds. Using open windrow techniques the compositing process allows micro-organisms to convert the waste materials into compost. The composting process includes initial shredding, formation of windrows, turning of windrows to optimise the oxygen content enabling an effective process, and then the final product screening. The whole composting process takes typically 10 weeks.
The highly monitored and stringently managed composting process effectively recycles green waste into a high quality compost which meets the British Standards Institution (BSI) PAS100 Standard, ensuring our compost is quality assured, traceable, safe and reliable. The output material is suitable for use as a soil conditioner and as a source of nutrients in agriculture and horticulture.
Hazardous soil treatment
Soil contamination is caused by the presence of chemicals in the natural soil environment, typically as a result of historical industrial activity, agricultural chemicals, or improper disposal of waste.
Enovert provides hazardous soil treatment services at a number of its sites. Our sites can accept a very broad range of contaminated non-hazardous and hazardous soils from construction and industrial sources such as house building, demolition and general land clearance.
The treatment uses a process called bioremediation to clean the contaminated soil and remove hazardous materials. Bioremediation uses microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi, which consume the contaminants in the soil as a food source, resulting in the degradation of the contaminant and returning the soil to its natural composition.
Hazardous soil treatment can fully recover contaminated soils, promoting the clean up of contaminated land. Once treated, the soil can be landfilled safely or set aside for use during landfill site restoration.
