Compost2022 – USCC Conference and Tradeshow

January 24, 2022

We hope you can join SCS Engineers at the US Composting Council’s largest event. You’ll learn about advances in compost manufacturing, compost utilization, and organics recycling which all benefit our members, society, and the environment.

January 24-27, 2022
Austin, TX

SCS is looking forward to meeting company and community representatives committed to composting, compost use, and organics management with the best regenerative practices and new hybrid approaches.

One SCS hybrid composting approach combines an ASP system with open windrow technology to achieve necessary process control while maintaining cost efficiencies. The design helped the Chittenden Solid Waste District solve the challenge of processing increasing tons of food scraps. As a result, its composting facility is now processing 8,200 more tons of food waste, and SCS helped identify financial support to adapt the existing infrastructure and processes.

Our staff provides comprehensive support – technology, best practices, higher quality yields, permitting, odor management, business planning, and how to find financing for sustainable operations.  We have decades of experience and expertise in serving public and private sectors – from New York City to San Diego.

SCS offers a Composting Pilot Program enabling waste managers and facilities to pilot test Aerated Static Pile (ASP) composting before making a capital investment.
