Abstract

The composting of fish and wood wastes in Alaska, who has an abundance of natural resources, is discussed. Organic byproducts from these wastes present value-added opportunities, and transforming them from wastes to resources can create important multiplier effects. Such effects can improve the environment and sustain the small rural communities upon which Alaskans depend. The composting of wood wastes in Alaska has become important because composting provides the wood processors and other industrial waste managers environmentally sound and profitable outlets for their residuals. The fish and wood wastes composting also yields operational insights on high moisture management that can be applied to any other feedstock mixture and climate.
