Presentation Title: WORKSHOP (FULL DAY): Optimizing BMPs for Compost Facility Planning and Management
Time: Tuesday, January 28, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Workshop Summary: In this workshop we will present a scientific perspective for understanding and optimizing the active composting process which is intended to provide a framework for facility design and operation. This approach is built on the published results of researchers in Nordic Europe who’s work led to the establishment of design and operational standards that solved the persistent odor issues that had plagued their composting industry. While the compost science presented gives insights into any scale of operation, the design standards presented focus on forced aeration methods at facilities that need to control their air emissions while optimizing throughout.
