  • WASATCH Composting Facility

    Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District utilizes the Aerated Static Pile (ASP) Composting System designed by Managed Organic Recycling, Inc.  The system was installed to reduce odors that occured during the previously used open windrow composting method.  Phase one is currently under construction with completion estimated by Summer of 2013 and Phase two will commence with the ...

  • Leaf composting in cold climates: a theoretical and an experimental evaluation

    There are many factors influencing the process of composting organic waste. This paper provides an experimental and theoretical evaluation of the leaf composting process to elucidate the importance of these various factors during composting of leaves. The analysis is performed specifically for the environmental conditions encountered in cold climates. Theoretical models are developed to evaluate ...

  • Historical perspective: Screens & air classifiers

    SCREENING equipment for the composting industry has become widely available, with a variety of options — including trommels, star screens, air classifiers and disc screens — to fit specific applications. But early on, in the 1960s and 1970s, screens were often homemade or adapted from other industries. Charles Melhoff, founder of Wildcat Manufacturing Co., says that although they began making ...

  • Selected antimicrobial resistance during composting of manure from cattle administered sub-therapeutic antimicrobials

    Received for publication December 10, 2007. Composting is being increasingly employed for the recycling of nutrients in manure from the livestock industry. However, composting manure from animals fed antimicrobials has not been well characterized. In this study, compost windrows were prepared using manure collected from cattle (Bos Taurus L.) fed tylosin (TY), chlortetracycline-sulphamethazine ...

  • Development of time-temperature probes for tracking pathogen inactivation during composting

    Pathogen inactivation is expected to occur in compost if temperatures over 55°C (131°F) are maintained for at least 3 days, or 15 days in windrows. However, a literature review revealed pathogen survival in a significant number of processes appearing to meet the prescribed time-temperature criteria. It was hypothesized that pathogen survival may be due to the existence of undetected temperature ...

  • Calculating capacity at composting sites

    The addition of new composting facilities or expansion of capacity at existing ones is becoming more and more difficult as feasible sites are taken out of circulation. This has created interest in maximizing the unit production of compost at composting sites so that they perform as efficiently as possible. The need is especially acute if physical expansion is not possible, but increases in ...

  • Windrow co-composting of shredded office paper and Broiler Litter

    The co-composting of shredded waste office paper with Broiler Litter (BL) in windrows was analysed in this study. Two compost mixes were monitored for five weeks; Mix 1 comprised 322kg BL, 117 kg shredded paper and 310L water and Mix 2 consisted of 112 kg BL, 265 kg shredded paper and 290 L water. The initial wet moisture content, initial porosity and initial wet bulk density for Mix 1 were ...

  • The pulse of the composting industry in Canada

    The Composting Council of Canada (CCC) reflects upon the passion, frustration and determination of its organics recovery advocates, who have made composting visions real. Collectively, these visions are now responsible for diverting about 4 million metric tons of organic residuals or 12 percent of Canada's annual waste stream from landfill - a gigantic leap since the early 1990s when the ...

  • Open-air windrows for winter disposal of frozen cattle mortalities: effects of ambient temperature and mortality layering

    After imposition of fees for disposal of cattle carcasses by the rendering industry, on-farm methods of mortality disposal are being investigated. Three open-air mortality compost windrows were constructed in January (JAN) and February (FEB) of 2004 in the cold, semiarid climate of southern Alberta, Canada. Windrow A included a base of barley straw a minimum of 46 cm thick, a layer of cattle ...

  • Environmental Risk Assessment of compost prepared from salvinia, egeria densa, and alligator weed

    Approximately 70,000 m3 of salvinia (Salvinia molesta) was removed from the Hawkesbury-Nepean River, New South Wales (NSW), Australia, during 2004. This study assessed the risks associated with applying compost prepared from aquatic weeds (AWC) to land, namely, survival and spread of aquatic and terrestrial weeds, eutrophication of waterways, accumulation of heavy metals and phytotoxicity. The ...

  • Composting Site Remediation Success

    Dorchester County, Maryland agreed to a remediation plan that involved composting the 140,000 tons of unprocessed feedstocks stored on site. An aggressive strategy has ...

  • The relevance of moisture control in organic municipal Solid waste windrow composting process

    The valorisation of the Municipal Solid Waste composting fraction assumes importance in management strategies of the MSW and constitutes a way of producing an organic material such as humus to improve the soil aeration, the water holding capacity and valuable product when used as soil amendment because it is a source of nutrients (N, P, K) and useful for recovery of poor and degraded soils. It is ...
