MSFEA student Internships at AREC


With the funds provided by Dean Mohtar​ and under the supervision of Dr. Mustapha Haidar, AREC director, MSFEA Civil student successfully completed a two-month internship at AREC during summer session 2020. With the support of AREC staff, the student designed, implemented, and tested the composting plant, which consisted of a compost windrow turner, screening machine, shredder, and bagging machine. 

The plant is expected to produce up to 250 tons of compost (10,000 bags) each year and will be used as to showcase and demonstrate the cost-effective conversion of organic materials to high-quality compost. Students, researchers, and farmers will have opportunities to participate in the On-Farm composting program, which is expected to help create community awareness of the environmental, agronomic, and economic benefits of composting.
