The Green Machine: Composting the Future Our project will develop and implement composting technologies to improve the effectiveness of a newly started composting system at the University of Idaho. The project goal is to integrate food waste from campus dining with animal carcasses as a minimum, with the potential to expand into a broader composting program in the future. The feedstock used in our composting process will be a mixture of liquid manure and straw/woodchips.

Our team will collect data, analyze feed stocks, research options, and develop the best customized system to meet the University of Idaho's composting needs with allocated budgets.

This project is important because it will have the potential to save the university money while helping to create a more sustainable campus here in Moscow.
