Since the leachate has derived from the composting process, is it possible to use it as a by-product rather than handle it as a waste?

yes

Does Peter have any examples of small businesses, like B&B, Inns, Retreat Centers, K-12 schools or others that use ASP to compost on-site at their facilities? If not, what would be the barriers or challenges for these types of institutions to do so?

@Jeff DEEP doesn't require permit for on-site composting of materials generated at the site - it does have to be under a certain amount. Apologies for not knowing the quantity. Likely on this webpage. https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/Waste-Management-and-Disposal/Organics-Recycling/Composting-and-Organics-Recycling If not, email me later Sherill.Baldwin@ct.gov
