About this book

The Practical Handbook of Compost Engineering presents an examination of the principles and practice of modern day composting. The text covers compost science, engineering design, and operation principles and practice, stressing a fundamental approach to analysis throughout. Biological, physical, chemical, thermodynamic and kinetic principles are all covered to develop a unified analytical approach to analysis and an understanding of the process. A brief history of the development of composting systems, which leads to descriptions of modern processes, is presented. This book also discusses the element of successful odour management at composting facilities, including state-of-the-art odour treatment and enhanced atmospheric dispersion.
