As a society, we have made major efforts to change our disposal practices; there is emerging recognition of the true environmental impact of production, or what we might call "life cycle analysis".
This project will develop an interdisciplinary curriculum in the area of Sustainable Resource Sciences. A demonstration compost facility on the UW Seattle campus will provide an infrastructure for education, technology transfer, research, and University operations.
This project will produce compost from the organic waste materials generated on campus, or can be used to test specific mixtures at the request of the community. The process, end product, and demonstration of end product use will be well documented and available for long-term, solid-waste planning and management by the University and our community.
