In Japan, where 84 million1 tons of livestock manure are generated annually, concerns about manure’s adverse impact on the environment, including its offensive odor, pollution of water, and greenhouse-gas generation, have made livestock farmers recognize the need to find ways to properly process and effectively utilize manure. Composting of the manure has been shown to be beneficial for both farmers and the environment.
