Environmental analysis of organic waste treatment focusing on composting scenarios
The correct disposal of the waste generated by human activities is one of the prevalent challenges that the world faces towards a sustainable development. The lack of suitable sites and the high cost of waste treatment ...
Assessment of maturity degree of composts from domestic solid wastes by fluorescence and fourier transform infrared spectroscopies
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2001-12-01)
Methods of assessment of compost maturity are needed so the application of composted materials to lands will provide optimal benefits. The aim of the present paper is to assess the maturity reached by composts from domestic ...
CHARGE DEVELOPMENT AND ACID-BASE CHARACTERISTICS OF SOIL AND COMPOST HUMIC ACIDS
(Sociedad Chilena de Química, 2003)
Co-composting of poultry manure with other agricultural wastes: process performance and compost horticultural use
(Springer Tokyo, 2015-01)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the composting process of poultry manure mixed with other complementary organic wastes. Two mixtures (treatment 1 and 2) were prepared with corn bare cobs, sawdust, shavings and manure. ...
Thermal behavior of lignin and cellulose from waste composting process
The lignin and cellulose were extracted from reference material (leaves and twigs) and food of compost at different times composting: zero (raw), 30, and 120 days. According to thermogravimetric analysis and its derivative ...
Evaluation of organic molecules originated during composting process
The composting process using sugarcane bagasse, animal manure, and urea as source of organic matter, microorganism, and nitrogen, respectively, were evaluated regarding the thermal behavior considering the maturation period: ...
Yield of different white button strains in sugar cane by product-based composts
The production of quality compost for Agaricus bisporus using alternative and local agricultural wastes beyond the search for productive strains are among the main factors related to improve yield. Thus, we evaluated the ...
Persistent effect of organic matter pulse on a sandy soil of semiarid Patagonia
Studies of degraded semiarid regions have shown that organic residue addition is a sound restoration alternative. We examined the effects of a single dose (40 Mg ha−1) of biosolids compost (BC) and compost of the organic ...
A Study of Compost Added to a Casing Technique in Agaricus bisporus Cultivation from Phase III Bulk Compost
(Amer Soc Horticultural Science, 2010-11-01)
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of the addition of different rates of colonized compost and formaldehyde treatment on production parameters (yield, biological efficiency, mushroom number, mushroom weight, ...
Estimated Reduction in Solids During Sheep Bedding Composting as a Function of the Composition of the Organic Fractions
The different organic matter fractions of residues significantly impact the degradability of organic material in composting windrows. Based on that, this study aimed to find out the organic matter fractions that most impact ...
