dc.descriptionAbstract: The purpose of this report is to apply the principles of biochemical process kinetics, mass and heat transfer, and major process parameters in the design and application of bench-scale compost systems. The premise is that understanding the fundamentals of the system in the engineering sense will assist to provide a technical foundation for standard bench-scale composting protocols. Process kinetics as they relate to organic substrate use, overall, and the kinetics of explosive compound degradation/transformation are discussed. Also discussed are the physical, chemical, biological, and thermodynamic factors central to the application of bench-scale compost systems. Finally, the outline of a standard remediation composting protocol built on a foundation of fundamentals is provided. The approach described in this report is providing a basis for two currently ongoing bench-composting investigations.-
