About the Event

 

What does it take to run a successful composting facility?

The Composting Council Research and Education Foundation (CCREF), working with experts from programs across the country, is offering a week-long course focusing on the knowledge and skills you need to do just that.

Whether you’re just getting started or been at it for a while, this is the class for you. You’ll not only hear lectures from top experts, you’ll get to practice what you learn through indoor and outdoor activities. You’ll also visit local facilities and see how the theory gets put into practice.

Who is this class for?

  • Compost operators
  • Farm, municipal or commercial
    • All feedstocks
    • Any size
  • Environmental and agricultural consultants
  • Recycling professionals
  • Local and state regulators
  • Equipment vendors
  • Anyone who wants an in-depth instruction on the art and science of commercial scale compost production and marketing 

 


This course meets the training requirement to become a Certified Compost Operations ManagerTM.

Go to www.certificationsUSCC.org for more information.


CURRICULUM:

Day 1: Composting process, feedstocks and recipe development, compost systems
Day 2: Equipment, safety, site design, environmental protection (odors and stormwater)
Day 3: Regulations, composting facility tours
Day 4: Compost testing, product quality, compost uses and marketing
Day 5: Facility management, trouble-shooting and analyzing compost piles


Students receive an instruction manual, access to complete presentations, plus supplemental resources.
