Is there a reference to this Nitrogen Mineralization table to consult?
When spreading fresh manure, how can we assume that a lot of the N won't be leached or lost by stormwater runoff? Especially if spread in winter when soils are frozen?
How big of a facility, meaning how much incoming food scraps, would justify a depackaging machine?
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?
Like a liquid feed?
Can Andrew recommended testing facilities?
Has work been done to determine if worming medications residue (regularly used with horses) break down during the composting process? Other livestock medications, too?
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?
Great presentations Andrew & Peter!
Can you please share again Peter Moon contacts?
How exactly are timers used in the aerated static pile systems?
Would an ASP be able to compost biodegradable plastic utensils, plates, etc?
What are deep requirements for starting composting business on a very small scale
Can small system compost be finished directly on garden beds, especially over the winter?
Andrew do you follow USCC Standards?
@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
