Composting is a self-heating, aerobic solid phase biodegradative process of organic waste materials, making possible its return to the environment as soil fertilizer and conditioner (Finstein & Morris, 1975; de Bertoldi & Zucconi, 1987; Finstein, 1992). Temperature increase involves a rapid transition from a mesophilic to a thermophilic microflora (65–75 °C) within a few hours, providing the pile is regularly aerated or frequently turned.
