Little Rotter™ composting vessel has been developed
for the processing of small to medium volumes of organic
By blowing air through a specially constructed floor and using
a computer controlled fan and damper system to supply oxygen
and forced air into the composting material the Little Rotter
can dramatically accelerate the natural composting process
of all organic matter.
With the added advantage of being able to kill harmful pathogens and plant seeds
by the heat generated by the micro organisms feeding on the degrading material
the Little Rotter is the ideal tool for dealing with those ever increasing piles
of organic waste.
The Little Rotter provides a totally contained system,
controlling unpleasant odours, liquid run off and a barrier
to birds and vermin.
Organic waste such as fresh horse manure and straw can be processed over a two
to three week period, each batch consisting of up to 7.25 cubic metres or 2.5
to 3 tonnes of waste. Temperatures of up to 70·c are achieved inside the
Little Rotter helping to produce a fertile fibrous compost - not all resultant
compost can be considered fertile, the final product is dependent on the initial
type of waste stream.
The system is quick and easy to install and needs no major equipment, is mobile,
robust, efficient and economical.
Smaller vessels are available, generally 1.2 m x 1.2 m with a cubic capacity
of 1.5 cubic metres or approximately 0.5 tonne of waste.
Modular design allows for one vessel to be linked to another providing staggered
cycles between one unit and another.
