Effects of sodium acetate as a pH control amendment on the composting of food waste.


A low level of microbial activity due to the production of organic acids is a recognized problem during the initial phase of food waste composting. Increasing such activity levels by adjusting the pH values during the initial composting phase was the primary concern to be investigated. In this study, sodium acetate (NaAc) was introduced as an amendment to… (More)
