Volatile Organic Acids In Compost : Production and Odorant Aspects

  title={Volatile Organic Acids In Compost : Production and Odorant Aspects},
  author={William F. Brinton},
Samples of active and cured compost from across the U.S. are examined for volatile organic acids (VOA) in relation to other microbiological and chemical properties. VOA are considered important because they reflect temporal microbiological properties of active and cured compost that influence the potential for compost to become odorous and phytotoxic. Data collected from 712 compost samples reveals a wide range of concentration for VOA between 75 and 51,474 ppm (dry basis) with a mean… CONTINUE READING
