The progress on the new ASP composting floor continues and is nearing completion. Soon we’ll be loading it and composting. We were able to test the air flow last week and the results showed an air throughput exceeding the Green Mountain design specification by 30%.
Our demonstration ASP zones continue to do well, we’ve completed 51 batches since February. Air is mostly comprised of 78% nitrogen and 20.9% oxygen and the average internal oxygen reading of our test zones is 18.05%. We will have no problem maintaining the aerobic composting process with the increased air throughput of the new floor.
When we get the zones loaded and in process we will invite you for a visit.
Nearly 600 yards of yard debris was brought in on Saturday, over 12% from Tualatin residents taking advantage of Grimm’s Tualatin Free Dump Day. Thank you for all who brought in the food donations for the Tualatin Food Pantry. Tualatin Food Pantry serves residents of Tualatin, Durham, Lake Oswego, West Linn and Wilsonville, providing emergency food boxes with up to 5 days worth of food and personal supplies to needy residents.
