Transforming the way compost is made
Despite the necessary COVID restrictions, 2020 was still a year of progress for our Dulverton Compost Facility upgrade project.
The new Komptech X63 windrow turner began operating on the existing, open-air compost piles in January. This new piece of equipment is helping us raise our efficiency and lower our leachate, which in the long run is better for everyone!
In February, a Development Permit Application was approved by Kentish Council to transform the existing open-air compost windrows into an enclosed, fully controlled facility that traps odours while safely processing leachate. A detailed tender process for the design, and ultimately the construction, of the facility has now closed with a decision regarding the preferred contractor is scheduled in early 2021.
In a separate announcement that reinforced our vision for the Compost Facility upgrade and its benefit to Tasmania, this transformation project was also recognised as a Project of Regional Significance by the Cradle Coast Authority.
