  1. Composting of solid waste during extended human travel and habitation in space.

    Article - En anglais

    As part of a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS) for long term human travel and habitation in space, the resources in solid waste may be regenerated through the microbiological process of composting.

    This would release CO, for photosynthetic uptake while transforming the waste to a smaller volume and weight of stabilized and sanitized compost.

    To continue the biodegradation and complete the cycling of nutrients, the compost would be incorporated into soil used in growing food crops.
