Sun Frost Scrap Eater uses solar architectural techniques, glazing and insulation to attain elevated temperatures. The insulated walls of the composting chamber trap solar heat collected through the dome, along with heat generated internally by respiration of composting microbes. A unique feature of this insulation is its ability to keep the heat in, while it allows oxygen to freely flow to the composting microbes.
