Relating quinone profile to the aerobic biodegradation in thermophilic composting processes of cattle manure with various bulking agents



Relating quinone profile to the aerobic biodegradation in thermophilic composting processes of cattle manure with various bulking agents



World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology 21(6/7): 1249-1254



Cattle manure was composted aerobically with various bulking agents (rice straw, vermiculite, sawdust or waste paper) at a constant incubation temperature of 60 degrees C. Increased quinone content (IQC) was used to assess microbial biomass in the composted material. IQC was proportional to mass reduction (MR) (R=0.812) and cumulative O2 consumption (COC) (R=0.810) irrespective of the bulking agent used, indicating that the yield of quinone was constant.
