[GreenYes] Re: NPR Story on Proposed Boston 'indoor' Composting Facility


Thanks for the advise.  I read in the local newspaper that a team of students have successfully reduce the composting time to 15 days by using cooking oil (0.5%) as a catalyst.  They call it the Organic Dome Aeration Technology.  The process reduced food waste up to 77%.

I discovered a website that provided a list of stuff that you can or cannot compost.  Here is an extracted list for leftover food:
