    Hot water for a year!!

    Hot water even in the city!

    It's applicable for most garbage cans and other containers. Aparently anything from a few days to a week in these little containers. Something to keep in mind in an extended outage or camping somewhere for a while.

    This is a concept by Jean Pain. It's wood/forest based composting and he heated his house for up to 18 months at a time, without electricity. He used a concept called "thermosiphoning" to circulate the water and hit upwards of 4L/s with it.

    I will try this soon, I've got the compost water heater book and have talked to the author who is sort of reviving this old technology. It's pretty cool!

    "Biomeiler" is a similar concept, or maybe the German name for it. Eco-Kiln might be another term. The above link shows a method that is thought to be more tractor friendly and less manual labour.

    I do like the increased uniformity and use of landscape fabric or such as well.

    And after your first batch is done, it's then able to be used in the core of the second one to generate methane for cooking and heating, apparently...

    I like the idea of a huge excavator heaped mound. As little manual labour as possible haha.
