Compost Engineering

Roger Tim Haug and his Practical Handbook of Compost Engineering takes an in-depth look at modern day composting, with principles essential to design, engineering and operational sciences through practical analysis.

Many of the products that industry has produced since the revolution of the 19thcentury have come to damage our planet beyond anything ever even imagined, and the time has come for us to take on our role as stewards of the land in a self-reliant and sustainable fashion that produces some form of bioremediation.

Composting is something natural and part of the way mother nature intended for mammals to rid themselves of their own organic wastes, it is also part of the life and death cycle of all living things, including those things in bodies of water, not just on land.

What makes most people cringe at the idea of doing industrial composting is usually the odor management systems or atmospheric dispersion, and they really are challenges for any human settlements above the size of small village.

Which is an excellent reason to use modern engineering to solve issues like odor when referring to industrial sized composting, since it is a field developed to find solutions to practical challenges.

It isnt impossible to make an industrial sized compost heap refrain from smelling, just as it isnt impossible to keep a landfill from smelling, but practically speakinganyone who has actually been to a landfill knows the truth about the nature of decaying odors and how little the city seems to care.

The days of the landfill are counted as our culture grows and we realize the importance of energy conservation, but it will take the expertise of people with passion and insight into the practical ways of doing things that will make that future truly sustainable.

This 717-page hardcover, written by Roger Tim Haug, published by CRC in July of 1993, measures 10.1 x 7.2 x 1.8 and ships at 3.2 lbs.

Understanding process, analysis, kinetic principles, thermodynamics, chemicals, physical aspects and basic biology, all unified into an analytical approach with a brief history of composting systems and modern techniques.

Compost Engineering has something for students, researchers,scientists, plant operators, engineers and practitioners looking for a more sustainable civilization that is self-reliant and gives back to the earth.
