A composting system consists of three parts:materials reception and pretreatment;the composting process; andcompost post-treatment. The first of these is where the materials are received, shredded and blended to give the optimum nutrient balance, mass structure and moisture content for successful composting. The post treatment is either for removing unwanted components (such as large particles by screening) or preparing the compost for a particular market. Both of these process areas have a profound influence on the overall composting installation, but for the purpose of this paper it is the composting process itself which will be the focus.
