Garden Towers – easy vertical gardening and composting

Garden Towers – easy vertical gardening and composting

Garden towers are an easy and fun way of growing food in limited space, while composting your food scraps and using them to fertilize the soil. The idea is that the plans are put in special slots cut on the side of the barrel, while food scraps are put in the perforated tube mounted inside the barrel. Then a couple of earthworms are also inserted in the tube and while they munch their way through the food scraps, they also fertilize and constantly improve the soil in the barrel.

Anaerobic Baffled Reactors for wastewater treatement

This article points to the results from a study of the processes involved in treating wastewater in an Anaerobic Baffled Reactor and collecting methane as a byproduct. An ABR is essentially a combination between a septic tank and a biogas reactor, whose design aims to increase the contact time with the active biomass (sludge), which in term results in improved treatment. ABRs are often used for the primary treatement of wastewater in DEWATS (DEcentralized WAstewater Treatment Systems), while a constructed wetland is used for the secondary treatement.
