Considerable amount of heat produced during composting of organic matter is usually lost to the surrounding environment. In order to utilize this potential heat source, biomass is composted in mounds or vessels and excess thermal energy is captured via heat exchangers and transported to the site for space heating, preparation of utility water and other applications. The aim of this experimental research is to measure the temperature profiles in a pilot-scale composting bioreactor and assess its performance.
