Decomposition can and does create extremely high heat at times. It consumes oxygen. Eggs need stability of oxygen gas in/CO2 out and the temperatures for eggs shouldn't exceed the lower 90's or it kills the eggs. If you test coconut coir fiber by wetting it down and packing it in a bucket with a lid, it is not decomposing very readily and heating up vs the ambient room. If you take grass clippings from your lawn and do the same, it gets warm...real warm as it composts.
