EVALUATION OF DIFFERENT OPTIMIZED PARAMETERS DURING COMPOSTING PROCESS
Ayesha Ameen, and Shahid Raza*
Composting process can be increased and improved by optimizing different parameters. These important parameters include pH, C: N, Moisture %, temperature, aeration and weight of the windrow. The reading of the temperature and oxygen was taken on daily basis while the reading of other optimized parameters was taken weekly. It was concluded that the variation in the reading of these optimized parameters were observed at the start and end of the process and this variation in the value of the optimized parameters was a positive sign of early degradation of organic waste.
Keywords: pH, C: N, Moisture %, temperature, aeration and weight.
