Compost vapor between 51 and 66 °C resulted in recovery rates of 17,700–32,940 kJ/h. Energy recovery was directly related to compost vapor and heat sink tem- peratures. Temperature lag times between in- itiation of aeration and system equili- brium existed. Temperature lag times warrant unique aeration schedules to maximize en- ergy recovery. ARTICLE I NFO ABSTRACT Keywords: This study reports operational information from a commercial-scale Aerated Static Pile (ASP) composting system Compost energy recovery with energy recovery, one of the few currently in operation globally. A description of this innovative system is Aerated static pile composting followed by operational data on energy capture eﬃciency for 17 experimental trials with variable compost vapor
