Composting for Municipalities: Planning and Design Considerations (NRAES 94)
Composting for Municipalities: Planning and Design Considerations provides guidance in the planning, design, and operation of municipal composting facilities, both large and small. The book is a useful guide for policy makers and planners, facility operators and technicians, consultants and designers, regulators and enforcement agencies, and other community stakeholders wishing to learn the basic principles and current practices of composting. Composting for Municipalities can be adopted as a home-study guide or as a textbook for use in classes or workshops. This book covers only aerobic composting systems (those that require oxygen).
This 126 page publication (NRAES-94) was originally published by the Natural Resource, Agriculture, and Engineering Service (NRAES, previously known as the Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service), a multi-university program in the Northeast US disbanded in 2011. Plant and Life Sciences Publishing (PALS) was subsequently formed to manage the NRAES catalog. Ceasing operations in 2018, PALS was a program of the Department of Horticulture in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at Cornell University. PALS assisted university faculty in publishing, marketing and distributing books for small farmers, gardeners, land owners, workshops, college courses, and consumers.
