Project Summary Project Information

Composting is a method of recycling biodegradable waste in order to take advantage of leftover nutrients as well as decreasing significant amounts of trash. Most composting today is done in trash cans and gardens where waste naturally decomposes over a very long period of time.

This project aims to assess the mechanisms behind natural decomposition in order to speed up and contain the process in a single unit. The final prototype will be fully operational and meet the standards set by the stakeholders. For a detailed project description, see the project readiness package.
