Composting of swine feces with tea grounds as bulking agents



Composting of swine feces with tea grounds as bulking agents



Japanese Journal of Swine Science 41(3): 153-161



In order to evaluate the application of tea grounds as bulking agents, the composted performance of swine faeces mixed with dry tea grounds was investigated, and the effect of tea grounds was examined for material temperature, bulk weight, ammonia emission, and ingredients. Three sets of compost were mixed with a variety of bulking agents; tea grounds only (TG), sawdust only (S), tea grounds and sawdust mixed at a ratio of 1:1 (M).
