In addition to calories, people and animals need a range of nutrients, including amino acids, lipids, vitamins and minerals, to stay healthy. Most of these come from our diets (Vitamin D from sunshine is one exception). While the amino acids, lipids and vitamins in our diets are produced by plants or animals, all the required minerals originate in soils.
BioCycle magazine, BioCycle.net and BioCycle Conferences are your go-to source for recovering the maximum value out of every ton of organic waste and wastewater generated. BioCycle shows how to process organic residuals — yard trimmings, food waste, woody materials, biosolids, manure, high strength organic wastes, municipal solid waste (MSW), and other source separated feedstocks into value-added products — and create jobs and green enterprises. Products include compost and engineered soils, biogas-derived electricity, vehicle fuels and renewable natural gas. Products that renew agricultural and urban soils, reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
