Corrosive free compost facility for Waste Options Nantucket
Veldeman’s daughter company, Universal Fabric Structures was appointed by Nantucket Waste Options to construct their aeration and biofilter structures. More then 5.500m² of TFS structures in a custom layout meet the island wind loads and provide a corrosive free environment while solving waste disposal on the island.
The biofilter will store the compost and odor control media for 2-3 years before re-sale on the market. The compost will be tilled and blended with the media only once a year. Working with non-corrosive materials limits maintenance and shut down time.
Why has Waste Options chosen for a Veldeman/Universal building?
- Non-corrosive components - Daylight light transmission reducing operating costs
- Complete odor control and suppression with no gaps or eaves
- Limited reaction loads
- Modular to refit upon growth
- Cleaner working environment
