Evaluation of “alperujo” composting based on organic matter degradation, humification and compost quality
Composting technology can be used as an alternative treatment method to turn AL into compost that can be use as organic amendments or fertilisers for agricultural systems, and demonstrates that composting technology could be used in addition to traditional treatment methods for organic amendments and fertilisers.

Chemical characterization of soil organic profiles for assessing the European morphogenetic reference base of humus forms in Mediterranean environments
In the Castelporziano Reserved Area (Tyrrhenian coast near Rome, Italy), the organic horizons of 14 forest sites were chemically characterized to assess the European reference base of humusExpand
Composting Wet Olive Husks with a Starter Based on Oil-Depleted Husks Enhances Compost Humification
Wet olive husks represent an environmental problem in Mediterranean areas but also a potential resource as recyclable organic matter. In the present work, we describe the composting of wet oliveExpand
Influence of leather meal fertilizer on soil organic matter: A laboratory study
Leather meal fertilizer was mixed with a soil (Typic Xerorthent) and incubated in the laboratory for one year at room temperature. Soil samples were collected periodically and analyzed in order toExpand
Chemical changes in humic substances from compost due to incubation with ligno-cellulolytic microorganisms and effects on lettuce growth
Both degradation-humification pathways beneficially affected lettuce growth, demonstrating that inoculation with any of these two microorganisms may be a useful tool to modify agronomic properties of unripe composts. Expand
Characterization of Ferricyanide-Humate Complexes by a Voltammetric Approach
The industrial sites that deal with the production and/or use of cyanide in their processes often have contamination problems by cyanide in soils and water. The behavior of these hazardous compoundsExpand
Composting – A Solution to the Industrial Solid Waste Management
Environmental pollution is the major problems associated with rapid industrialization, urbanization and rise in living standards for people. Gelatin industry solid waste contains plant nutrients andExpand
Follow the degradation of organic matter during composting of date palm (phoenix dactylifera L) waste by physicochemical properties, UV-visible and FT-IR analysis
Palm tree waste is considered among the most widespread organic waste in nature and the least exploited in our days. In the Arabic region and the North of Africa, the date palm tree cultivation rep...
Stable organic carbon pool rises in soil under chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) forest for timber production after 15 years since grafting onto satin-cut stumps
Forest soils represent an important terrestrial organic carbon sink and the management practices could affect this C pool. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of a forestExpand
15N Natural Abundance, Nitrogen and Carbon Pools in Soil-Sorghum System Amended with Natural and NH4+-Enriched Zeolitites
The use of rocks containing high amounts of natural zeolites (zeolitites) as soil amendment has been found as a valuable method for increasing agriculture sustainability. However, the potentialitiesExpand
