In the first part of this series analyzing the most recent Environmental Protection Agency technical guidance publications on composting wastewater sludge, we focused on the interaction between the biological generation of heat, and temperature. This indicated that, unless prevented, the composting system tends to accumulate heat excessively, leading to temperatures which debilitate the biological community responsible for treatment. EPA guidance neglects this interaction. Part II herein focuses on the removal of heat to control temperature.
