Composting process recycles various waste products and produces soil conditioners (the composts), which is beneficial to agriculture and environment. Although this technology has been developed for a long time, the efficiency of composting on the industrial scale in developing countries still need to be improved. CoEBio is excited to announce “2018 Industrial Composting Technology Training Course for Developing Countries”. The training course is co-organized with Shanxi Resources & Environment Technology Co., Ltd, which is a composting company in Shanxi Province of China. In this training course, we will not only expose participants to the state-of-the-art trends in the composting technology, but also instruct how to set up composting on industrial levels. The trainees are invited to visit the company and practice hands-on the real industrial technology. We hope to spread these relevant knowledge and skills through the industrial technology training courses, with the aim to improve the industrail composting technology in developing countries.
