Airam commented on Compost heater

Dear Alex,
I would like to answer your questions:
* medical benefits: you can use human shit in such a compost heater as well, so it can be processed.
* I think it depends on hot water consumption, so basically the one we built should be enough, as it generates in one cycle 100 l of hot water (ca. 40-60 degrees Celsius).
* You can try composting indoors, but it depends on the compost type. E.g., worm compost is possible indoors. Such a compost pile that is supposed to generate heat needs lots of air for the bacteria to breathe so if enough airflow could be generated indoors, this could work out too. Smell is not an issue, as it is covered by a lot of straw so that it blocks the smell.

Airam commented on Compost heater

Hello, the aim was to build the compost heater and to learn how to do it. I learned the process and structure of a compost heater, as well as technical and practical details. The challenge is to count amount of material needed and after the compost heater is built, it may happen that a tube can leak, and you need to detect where, so this means you need to disassemble the whole pile. Otherwise, such a pile can generate big heat for half-year, and then the heat will decrease gradually, but the whole thing can be used up to one year. At the end you get soil :)
yes, this can definitely help the communities to generate heat, especially rural one that have access to dung and scrap wood. The best way to engage people is to make such compost heaters in their neighbourhoods, and then they can experience themselves the outcomes.
