Sustainability and Manure Management

My research team is working to develope sustainable waste treatment methods (SWTM) for treating food waste and green waste. We are involved in testing the efficacies of various SWTMs including conventional composting, vermi-composting, and advanced composting for controlling food waste and green waste attached pathogens. We are also testing/developing methods for controlling pathogens in solid and liquid fractions of dairy manure.
