  • Austrian success story of on-farm composting in cooperation with the communities, guaranteeing highest compost qualities and a high performance regional humus cycle
  • Techniques and quality management of open windrow composting of food and garden waste at scales between 1 000 and 100 000 tpa including aeration systems
  • Key learnings on the biology of composting, humus production, compost quality criteria as well as hygiene & odour management, documentation, monitoring & reporting
  • Results of long-term field trials on soil improvement with compost
  • A visit of one of the most innovative biogas plants for food and agricultural residues including bio-methane fuel production and CO2 recovery, digestate use and an in depth insight into the framework conditions for a successful biogas regime on national level

As a special highlight, we will visit the 8th International Practitioner Day on Composting, Europe’s biggest show of bio-mass and compost processing machines organised by the Compost and Biogas Association Austria.
