Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Food and Garden Waste Composting Effects of Management and Process Conditions

  title={Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Food and Garden Waste Composting Effects of Management and Process Conditions},
  author={E. Ermolaev},
Composting is a robust waste treatment technology. Use of finished compost enables plant nutrient recycling, carbon sequestration, soil structure improvement and mineral fertiliser replacement. However, composting also emits greenhouse gases (GHG) such as methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) with high global warming potential (GWP). This thesis analysed emissions of CH4 and N2O during composting as influenced by management and process conditions and examined how these emissions could be… Expand
