Do you run an Open Windrow Compost Facility?

Yes? Then you need CompostManager

Compost Management Tool for Effective Oxygen Measurement

This easy to use compost management tool takes the guesswork out of aerobic composting and compost oxygen measurement by analysing Temperature, Moisture, O₂, and CO₂ levels, and providing the user with clear instructions to optimise the composting process.

With the use of our compost management tool, each windrow can be individually analysed and then directions provided to help maximise the efficiency of the composting process.

This has the capacity to:

  • Reduce the impact of your Odour Emissions
  • Increase productivity by reducing your composting time
  • Reduce your production costs
  • Comply with Best Available Techniques (BAT 36) for Waste Treatment
  • Accurately record data in conjunction with the PAS100 requirements, and generate reports for every batch

Total Composting Data Analysis

  • Our compost management system analyses the data collected from the compost probe. It will produce a simple set of instructions for the composter to follow; directing the user to either 'turn', 'irrigate' or 'leave alone' to ensure optimal conditions in the windrow
  • CompostManager was designed by crunching over 500,000 data points from active composting sites 
  • Take the guess work out of your turning schedule. By using the CompostManager system to analyse compost oxygen measurement, you will know when the conditions are absolutely right to turn - reducing operating and labour costs
  • The data is recorded and stored in the cloud. Giving you a back history of compost measurement for compliance purposes 

Oxygen / Carbon Dioxide

Aerobic composting consumes oxygen and as a result produces carbon dioxide. The balance of these two is essential to understanding the process.
CompostManager has shown when the balance is right, any odour issues previously experienced can be significantly reduced.


In order to achieve the optimum conditions to create premium compost, it is essential to record and analyse moisture levels in a windrow, which should be maintained around 50%.


Temperature is essential for ensuring a pathogen and weed free end product.

Temperature recording also demonstrates compliance with legislation (PAS 100).
