Bonaire – turning horticultural waste & wastewater sludge into compost

Development of a composting process with horticultural waste and wastewater treatment sludge as input materials. Through process efficiency research at pilot scale the results suggested that two waste streams + adequate process management could produce a useful product. However, the heavy metal content of the sludge was a concern.
