What is CompostManager?

CompostManager is the world’s only total compost management system.  The system analyses temperature, moisture, O2 and CO2 simultaneously, using a single probe and custom designed software.

The CompostManager system incorporates:

  • Unique four-way probe to measure temperature, moisture, oxygen and carbon dioxide
  • Bluetooth enabled barcode scanner
  • Data monitoring instrument
  • Online data analysis

The CompostManager software analyses the results, which can then be viewed very simply, either for the site as a whole or for each individual windrow.  Once analysed, the software will produce a simple instruction for the composter to follow, directing the user to either ‘turn’, ‘irrigate’ or ‘leave alone’ to ensure optimal conditions in the windrow.

CompostManager has been created with the benefit of over seven years of research using detailed analysis of data collected from fully operational sites, with over 330,000 sets of measurements.  It means that for the first time composters can understand the process fully and, more importantly, control it.

Results have shown that the system is capable of producing high-quality compost in NINE weeks after only FOUR turns.
