Scrap Eater Solar Composter

The Scrap Eater is the only truly solar-powered composter. The composting process is accelerated by the warm environment. Using conventional techniques a compost pile at least 3 ft. across is needed to obtain necessary elevated temperatures. To compensate, the Sun Frost Scrap Eater uses solar architectural techniques, glazing and insulation to attain elevated temperatures. The solar heat collected through the dome, along with the heat generated internally by the respiration of the composting microbes is trapped by the insulated walls of the composting chamber.
