BI compost firm allies with Austrian business

Green Mountain Technologies on Bainbridge Island has announced an international alliance with Compost Systems of Austria.

Both are global leaders in commercial compost technologies, including design and development of advanced large-scale facilities, and proprietary “in vessel” containerized systems.

The companies will jointly lead an all-day Food Waste Workshop at the U.S. Compost Council’s Annual Conference Jan. 24-27 in Ontario, CA.

“Compost Systems and Green Mountain Technologies share similar philosophies toward innovation and commitment to solving environmental issues,” GMT founder Michael Bryan Brown said. “This partnership will help each of us leverage our complimentary and unique technologies, enabling us to each offer a broader range of cutting-edge systems and services to our growing global client-base.”

GMT will now offer CS systems, equipment and technologies to customers in North America as well as to GMT’s existing customer base of over 400 sites and facilities globally.

“The unique “Composting Box Tunnel System” developed by Compost Systems is a great solution for facilities that have strict environmental and air quality goals while also needing an economical and efficient composting process,” GMT Operations director Orion Black-Brown said.

“We’re also excited to introduce the TracTurn and other compost turning equipment built by Compost Systems to the North American market. The side discharge TracTurn is a great material handling solution for our clients, particularly for large cTAP aerated compost processing facilities.”

CS will likewise offer GMT’s proprietary systems and technologies, in particular GMT’s Earth Flow in-vessel system, to its customer list in Europe and the Far East.

GMT was founded in 1992 to design, build and manufacture commercial composting systems. GMT is dedicated to helping organizations reduce their environmental footprint, save money and produce high-quality compost as efficiently as possible. For details go to
