Abstract:The 6-month-old compost was also examined for its capacity to promote denitrification in column studies. The extent of nitrate removal depended on the solid retention time, but could also have been influenced by the amount of compost in the column that could be utilized as an energy source by denitrifying microorganisms. The results of this study suggested that relatively immature compost may have a better potential for several environmental applications than the mature compost commonly used in traditional agricultural applications.
