The first Biowaste Conference of the new Finish Association Biolaitosyhdistys at the 16th of November 2010 was organised to summarize the legal and technical situation of the organic waste recycling sector in Europe. In the second part of the event suitable composting and anaerobic digestion technologies for Finland where presented and discussed. The topic process management in these presentations allowed making a reference to the COMPO-BALL technology. By means of the poster and the flyers COMPO-BALL was additionally presented in the exhibitor’s area.

The 7th international conference ORBIT2010 (June 29th – July 1st 2010) the in Heraklion, Greece, offered an excellent opportunity to present COMPO-BALL to the scientific organic waste recycling world. 260 participants – mostly scientist from more than 30 countries of the world got the flyer in the delegates pack. This led to intensive discussion in the poster session at the COMPO-BALL display especially because some of the researchers knew research with temperature and humidity measurements as part of process management in composting. Very lively discussion took place after 2 of the 140 presentations from UK which covered similar measurement targets and results but based on other technologies and several participants showed interest to be informed about the COMPO-BALL results.

These have been the 2 presentations:

E.I. Stentiford, P.G. Hobbis  -Measuring temperatures throughout the mass during composting using randomly distributed dataloggers
E. Crouch and G. Longmuir  – Compost monitoring and data analysis: the significance of gas, temperature, and moisture data from windrows

COMPO-BALL at the ISWA-Beacon Biowaste conference

Several members of the COMPO-BALL consortium participated in the Biannual Biowaste Conference of the International Solid Waste Association ISWA at the University of Perugia in Italy on the 15-16th of April 2010. The conference was attended by around 140 participants from 15 countries and the COMPO-BALL system received high interest.

A small stand and a COMPO-BALL flyer were used to demonstrate and explain the COMPO-BALL system to participants. This high interest by the participants of the conference clearly shows the need for advanced temperature and moisture sensors. Some sceptic feedback was also received as to which extend the ball technology could work, which nevertheless could be revised by carefully explaining the technique that is currently being developed.
