Title:Feasibility of Composting Organic Residuals Generated at the University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign Campus
Author(s):Cooperband, Leslie
Abstract:Leslie Cooperband - UI Dept. of Human & Community Development. The University of Illinois generates large quantities of organic wastes. In addition to the leaves and brush or "green waste" generated from grounds maintenance, the principal generators of large volumes of organic wastes include the Animal Sciences Department (AS; College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environmental Sciences; ACES) and the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM). There is great potential to blend these organic wastes in an integrated fashion and compost them collectively. We conducted a feasibility study to evaluate potential sites for composting, feedstock amounts and availability, regulatory requirements, compost recipes and appropriate composting technologies as well as an analysis of the potential local markets for high quality compost. Cooperband presented the highlights from this study and provided an update of the status of the initiative.
