Can Thermal Energy in the Composting Process Heat an Alternate Water Source?

Student: Maxwell Poole

District/Region: Tri-County District

Event: 2009 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 8 - Maple Grove Education Centre

The project tested whether the thermal energy in the composting process could be used to heat an alternate water source.

Utilizing an apparatus called a Natural Convection Compost Heat Extractor (a bucket, copper tubing and water) and a six-month-old compost pile the thermal energy from the compost heated the water in the bucket from 2 degrees C to 34.5 degrees C in less than three days.
