Veteran Compost and O2 Compost

Manure Spreader Veteran Compost and O2 Compost will develop a compost demonstration project and public education/training facility in Anne Arundel County for livestock farmers located throughout Maryland. The project—which is aimed primarily at horse operations—will demonstrate Aerated Static Pile (ASP) composting technology systems at three levels: small scale (1-4 horses or livestock equivalents); medium scale: (5-20 horses); and large scale: (20-40 horses). All three compost systems will be solar powered to demonstrate off-grid sustainability. The small and large systems will include storage tanks to retain roof water for use in the composting process.

Public education and outreach is a major component of the project and will include formal classes and hands-on workshops, public tours for students in kindergarten through college, and alliances with government agencies and non-profit environmental organizations. In addition, a Compost Cooperative website will be developed to bring together producers and end users of the finished compost products.
