Emissions of N2O and CH4 from an aerated composting system were investigated using small-scale simulated reactors. The results show relatively high emissions of N2O at the beginning of composting, in proportion to the application amount of food waste. After 2 days, the N2O emission decreased to 0.53 ppmv on average, near to the background level in the atmosphere (0.45 ppmv). The addition of composted cattle manure increased N2O emissions not only at the beginning of composting, but also during… CONTINUE READING
