[GreenYes] Indoor composting economics


Anybody on the list familiar with the Boston proposal?  I'm wondering how the economics of this will work out, given that the peak input is leaves, which are highly seasonal.  If the plant is sized for peak loadings in the fall, it would seem to be uneconomic the rest of the year.  If a levelized capacity is targeted instead, there would seem to be storage and emissions challenges.
 
Certainly, integration of food waste might help reduce the surge associated with yard waste, but I'm guessing not that much.  If the food waste is less seasonal, including it would boost the peak supply of organics. 
 
Anybody know how these design challenges have been met?
