Webinar: Forced Aeration with Preprocessing Mortality Composting Systems Under Practice Standard 316

Tuesday, September 28, 2021. 2:00 PM. Webinar: Forced Aeration with Preprocessing Mortality Composting Systems Under Practice Standard 316. Keith Warren, Chandler Cummins, and Ronnie Howard, Advanced Composting Technologies; William Reck, USDA - NRCS. Sponsored by the USDA. Register here.
Attend this webinar to gain more knowledge about the fundamentals of composting and how preprocessing of carcasses combined with forced aeration of the piles optimizes the entire mortality composting process and how this process has evolved over two decades with NRCS oversight and support into a simple state-of-the-art method of mortality management.
Join us as we discuss where forced aeration and preprocessing came from and how NRCS, through a simple Conservation Innovation Grant nearly twenty years ago, help mold this alternative to static pile composting. During this webinar, how the science of composting is harnessed and optimized through preprocessing and forced aeration and how NRCS and industry guidance and involvement have driven the years of process improvement and innovation will also be discussed. Participates will discover how the process’s consistent and independently verified performance has impacted loading rates, cycle times, facility sizing, and facility design options including the “Open Floor” Concept. Supporting documentation, facility sizing worksheets, estimated costs, and start-up and operational videos will be presented. Swine and poultry operations will be emphasized.
