Title: Development of a Method to Convert Green and Animal Wastes to a Useful Agricultural Product with Possible Alternative Fuel Use
Pierce College students will produce a product created from animal and green wastes that will be a fertilizer and/or a fuel source. Waste, as it is currently treated, is either inefficiently composted or potentially endangers our water supply. This project provides the opportunity for students to test different sustainable methods of dealing with waste and turning it into an efficient and clean resource.
