Welcome to O2Compost...
The answer to your waste management needs.
for everyone who is interested in supporting sustainable agriculture
by properly managing manure and other organic residuals through
the use of aerated composting principles.
This site contains helpful articles and
discussions about composting, as well as many examples
of our systems.

With aerated composting, fresh air (i.e. oxygen) is introduced
throughout the mix of materials using an electric blower.
The oxygen stimulates the micro-organisms that are already
in the mix, and their by-product is heat. In a properly operated
compost system, pile temperatures are sufficient to pasteurize
the raw material, and the oxygen-rich conditions within the
core of the pile eliminate offensive odors. High temperatures
also destroy fly larvae and weed seeds, improving your horses’
health and yielding a safe, high-quality finished product.
Finally, aeration greatly expedites the composting process
and lends itself to a true flow-through process, thereby eliminating
the "2-year pile syndrome". All of this takes place
in 30 to 60 days, without turning the compost pile. Aerated
composting is described as "Elegant in its Simplicity".
Most compelling, aerated compost is an excellent source
of macro- and micro-nutrients as well as stable organic matter,
all of which support healthy plant growth. In addition, the
micro-organisms in compost aid in the suppression of plant
pathogens. Finally, compost retains water extremely well resulting
in improved drought resistance, a longer growing season, and
reduced soil erosion.
