"Three Stars" according to Magnus Mølbach. Ok. some aspects i hadn't thought about.. Four Stars Amazon Customer vey interesting, and an idea worthy of further investigation.. This booked helped me build my first pile! Here at UCSC, Joseph Haggard just finished teaching a class titled 'Composting for Communities: Waste-Energy Solutions for our Future'. This book was one of the main readings for the class and together, we were able to develop a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and applications of composting and compost heat recover
Here is a revolutionary approach for heating rooms and generating hot water. A review of calculations to help you estimate the heating capabilities of various approaches and other planning tools make this book invaluable for compost heat recovery on any scale.. Author Gaelan Brown has worked with engineers and compost scientists to refine methods of composting that can heat greenhouses, barns, buildings, and hot water, all without combustion. It seems almost too good to be true: make high-value organic compost while generating reliable combustion-free heat. But it works, and this book is your practical introduction. With detailed case studies of large scale engineered systems and plans for constructing small DIY systems, you'll find step-by-step illustrations and photos to guide you through the process
Galen Brown’s book will add momentum to the growingand vitalmovement to treat this waste as a valuable resource. We all know that the world needs cleaner energy sources and restored soils capable of supporting food production. It’s ingenious.” (Paul Gipe, founder, WindWorks)“This book has given me inspiration to try out different techniques next time around, and I see where I made beginner’s mistakes on my first mound. It is a very useful book that proves beyond doubt that there are endless possibilities for capturing and using the heat generated by composting organic material, both at home and on larger scales. I learned a lot and am impressed with the innovation and the investment opportunity for compost power. The Compost-Powered Water Heater is an indispensable handboo
