Valorization of beer brewing wastes by composting

Article English OPEN
M. E. Silva; I. Brás;

The aim of this work was to study the viability of recycling the residual yeast and diatomaceous earth (RYDE) slurry generated by the beer brewing industry by composting with animal manures, as well as to evaluate the quality of the composts obtained. Two pi... View more
