Pelletizing Compost for Energy Utilization

THE PELLETIZATION OF COMPOST FOR ENERGY UTILIZATION If produced compost does not meet the legal requirements for application to agricultural land, it is not suitable for application in soil, and can therefore be tested as an alternative fuel when co-fired with fossil fuels. Low-quality compost that cannot be applied to …
