NC State University Opens A Composting Facility

On April 24th NC State published this story about the compost facility they opened this year.  It’s a five bin aerated static pile system with the capacity to process 1,200 tons per year, which they are already approaching thanks to a large jump in organics collections on campus.  They have received a grant to expand the facility by two more bins, adding another 250 tons of capacity.

The vision for the facility is that it will also serve as a research cooperative to engage researchers, students and faculty on projects that will help broaden understanding of organics management, answer industry questions and challenges, and expand the many applications for compost such as the potential for carbon sequestration and stormwater control. If you have any ideas for potential research projects, please let NCSU know!

There is a link in the story to a virtual tour/webinar that NCSU operator, Adam Bensley is hosted on April 23rd.

“The most rewarding part of getting involved with the NCCC is belonging to a group of people who back up their big ideas with hard work. The board is a working board, made up of people who appreciate compost and want to see it used more widely in our state. Our annual meetings and training workshops bring together people from different backgrounds with diverse agendas, proving that the composting industry has room for everyone. Each NCCC event I attend challenges me to think differently–and more deeply–about the choices I make.”
