Aerated Static Piles (ASP)


The Aerated Static Pile (ASP) is the simplest and least cost approach to composting large volumes of organic waste materials.  The ASP System is ideally suited for facilities that manage large volumes of livestock manure, yard debris, food scrap waste and other challenging feedstock materials.

In most cases, the aeration system consists of pipe-on-grade to maximize the flexibility of the working area. Trenches can also be used where the limits of the composting area are clearly defined.  ASP Systems can also be used as a precursor to a more permanent system. The advantages of starting with an ASP System include: 1) getting started quickly at minimal expense, and 2) defining the actual volume of materials that need to be composted on a monthly or annual basis.

With the Aerated Static Pile System, on-site compost training by O2Compost staff is also available.
