Pascale Champagne: Research

Bioproducts from Renewables - Biomass Composting

Projects Established at Carleton University:

Examination of the use of St. Mary’s Paper (Sault Sainte-Marie) biosolids for gravel pit and mining site rehabilitation, as well as potential use as a soil amendment or backfill material at landfill sites. Project undertaken from December 2002 to April 2005 in collaboration with the Upper Lakes Environmental Research Network (ULERN) and St. Mary’s Paper.

 

Examination of process optimization of in-vessel composting using pulp and paper sludge as a feedstock material. Examination of bulking agents and amendment addition for field-scale and large-scale composting operations. Project undertaken from September May 1999 to August 2000 in collaboration with Agriculture Canada and Compost du Québec.
