It’s a student-funded project that has been in the works for awhile—an Intermodal Earth Flow composting steel vessel was installed outside the University Union delivery area, recently. The composter will handle organic food waste from the University Dining, as well as food waste from plates, and dining operations on the UW-Green Bay Campus. The post-mix will be taken to a site on-campus to cure for between 2-4 months which will then yield compost that can be used. The composter has a minimum processing capacity of At least 2,000 pounds of raw organic waste per 7-day period or 660 gallons.
