Abstract—In order to solve problems of raw materials present in the compost reactor are compacted blocks, poor ventilation performance, large ventilation resistance, and difficulty in homogenizing the product, a helical ribbon and screw impeller aerobic compost bioreactor was developed. Through numerical simulation of the flow field, it is proved that the helical ribbon and screw impeller has a good agitation and axial flow property. The results of the composting test show that the time above 55°C for the top, middle, and bottom layers is 5.2, 4.7, and 4.3 days. During the reaction, the oxygen concentration was over 8%, and the final seed germination index of each layer was over 88%, which proved that the experimental reactor can achieve homogenization and can be effectively harmless compost.

Index Terms—Aerobic compost, bioreactor, helical ribbon and screw impeller, CFD.
