Oily animal treatment is reviewed in the Gulf of Mexico

No need for scrubbing

No need for scrubbing with mayonnaise and handling the animals and birds for hours on end, a process that traumatizes animals and requires considerable man power. Trials show that spraying a SlickAway™ solution onto the feathers, a significant proportion of the crude oil (approximately (75-80%) came off by moving them around in a pool of water or by rinsing with a shower spray; an application baby oil or vegetable oil removes any remaining crude oil residue.

About Composting

In nature, naturally occurring microorganisms help to decompose organic matter and toxic waste. They work in synergy as a vital part of our total ecosystem. These are the beneficial microorganisms that ensure the healthy breakdown of organic waste; they are the foundation of a healthy and dynamic ecosystem.

The type of composting process most commonly used today was developed in Indore, India between 1924 and 1931 and was first described in North America in 1931. One of the main principles of the Indore process is compost management by turning, or aeration, to stimulate the natural microbial activity that works to break down the organic matter.

Turning the compost was considered to supply aerobic microorganisms in the compost with enough oxygen to remain in dominance, thereby eliminating pathogens. It was once believed that anaerobic composting smells bad and attracts flies and rodents. A well aerated compost pile does not smell or attract pests and delivers a valuable soil amendment at the end of the process. We now know that there are also beneficial anaerobes that break down organic matter through fermentation, and this process does not smell either.



Awareness

People are becoming increasingly aware.....

of the need to become actively involved to protect our environment. In every home, municipality and counties, residents are concerned about reducing household, commercial and industrial waste. Citizens are aware that the run-off from wastes leaks into and contaminates our ground water and that transporting waste far from the source where it is generated creates carbon emissions that lead to climate change.

The decision to adopt composting as a method of managing green waste has already been taken in many municipalities. In larger population centers, centralized facilities are composting the green waste. The solution is usually an expensive one involving special collection, and investment in heavy equipment and facilities to sort, move and turn the waste. Households and commerce are at the beginning of the chain of responsibility, sorting their waste and recyclables.

Composting at home or school is simple and costs very little; the result is a product that we can use in our gardens, returning the healthy soil to the earth and eliminating the use of chemicals.        

Composting can start in the school kitchen

and in the restaurant with Compozz

In order to make composting easy for everybody we at InocUsol have developed a product that is made from fermented sawdust and bran husks. Compozz is the key to easy composting. It is sprinkled directly on the waste from the kitchens and the restaurant. This means that the organic waste never has the chance to start to rot. Instead the bacteria that cause bad odours and infections are suppressed as soon as the waste is thrown into the container with the Compozz, making sure that beneficial microbes stay in dominance.

How should we organize school composting?
• We will deliver Compozz to the kitchen in containers with a scoop to sprinkle the product on the waste.
• At lunch time a container with Compozz can be placed beside the waste bin and as each child cleans off their plate a small handful of Compozz can be added by the child.
• The product is dry and simple to use.
• When the container is full it will need to be emptied on the compost pile outside.

The outdoor compost bin

Educational and useful

A box needs to be built at the rear of the school building or close to the kitchen entrance to collect the compost and allow it to mature. During northern winters it will freeze but the beneficial microbes are in the pile; they survive the winter and many still are at work due to the warmth generated by the fermentation process. Of course, during the very cold months there will be less activity but things speed up as soon as spring arrives.

You will not need to turn the compost for aeration. Compozz stimulates the beneficial microbes from the environment to colonize in the compost. Both aerobic and anaerobic forms of beneficials are at work in your pile. Next spring you will be able to turn the pile and find soil to put on the gardens and nourish plants for the next year; the resulting compost is of very high quality.

InocUsol is delighted to be involved in helping schools to begin composting projects and teaching children about composting. This empowers young people to participate as stewards of the environment. We will be available to help with the organization of the composting routines and to assist in the explanation of composting to the staff and children.
