Compost Blankets are used as an immediate method of erosion control covering 100% of the existing soil surface; effective on mild to extreme slopes. Blankets are installed using our pneumatic blower trucks which can access difficult to reach areas without disturbing the existing site. Research from the EPA and other organizations shows that compost blankets are effective at reducing runoff, improving soil structure, and aids in establishing vegetation. Highway Fuel’s compost meets or exceeds standards set by the U.S. Composting Council (USCC) under its Seal of Testing Assurance (STA) Program.
Compost Blankets can be vegetated while being installed using our proprietary seeding method of incorporating seed directly into the compost with a calibrated injection system. Soil stabilizer or “tackifier” can also be incorporated into the compost, creating a bonded matrix within the blanket.
