Zero Waste At Fort Drum
A “weigh and sort” done at one of Fort Drum’s dining facilities (above and below) estimated that the amount of food waste produced per meal was around 0.5 lbs/person.

The Fort Drum Army base in northern New York began collecting and composting preconsumer food scraps in Fall 2014.

Small-Scale Composting In Mediterranean Tourist Regions
A drum composter was selected for the Upper Galilee county in Israel, a major tourist region with 20,000 inhabitants.

The SCOW Project has been developing low-cost collection and composting systems for source separated organics in agro-tourism areas around the Mediterranean.

Organics Recycling In Maryland
The Maryland Department of the Environment notes that the recycling rate for yard trimmings was 70.9 percent in 2012, while the recycling rate for food waste was about 8.5 percent. Veteran Compost (facility above) in Aberdeen, Maryland composts food waste with ground wood.

Composting rule revision, utilization of compost by the Maryland State Highway Administration and consideration of food waste disposal ban are among recent developments.

Compost Use Trials On Ontario Farms
Crops that need a lot of nitrogen, such as corn (above), may need commercial fertilizer in addition to compost. For orchard crops, such as cherries and apples, compost alone can provide all necessary fertilization.

Results find compost benefits are dependent on soil type, crops being grown and their nitrogen requirements, the soil’s need for organic matter and the weather.

Community Composting In Sacramento
Adding compost to the gardens helps with water infiltration and moisture retention. “When it rains, you want to soak up every drop that does fall, and compost does that,” says Scott Thompson.

“Farm-to-Fork-to-Farm” is the basis for ReSoil, which collects food scraps by bicycle and brings them to community gardens for composting.

Boosting Biogas And The Bottom Line At WRRFs
The East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) in Oakland, California, was an early pioneer in codigestion at water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs), utilizing its excess digester capacity to process food waste streams.

“Traditional” WWTPs with anaerobic digesters are adding high strength food waste and FOG to become Water Resource Recovery Facilities with significantly smaller carbon footprints. Part I
