Composting processes of the organic residue originating from domestic refuse have been studied. The experimental results for the four windrows examined are reported. Composting temperature was controlled between 45 and 65-degrees-C by periodic mixing of substrate plus water addition: this also kept moisture in the range of 50 to 60%. The inorganic nitrogen content of the matured compost was very low, rendering the compost a good soil conditioner. The initial carbon/nitrogen ratios were within limits which ensure a successful biodegradation process, while the final values were promising for compost use in agriculture. (EN)
