Forward Market Planning at the Largest Indoor Biosolids Composting Facility in the U.S.
The Inland Empire Regional Composting Authority (IERCA) has constructed the largest indoor biosolids composting facility in the U.S., in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The facility allows communities in southern California to process their biosolids, and other waste streams, into a Class A product that possesses a ‘sales’ value (rather than an application cost) and the ability to be distributed outside of agricultural industry. While their facility construction was underway, the IERCA began concentrating efforts on product market development. With approximately 225,000 cubic yards of compost to be generated on an annual basis, and limited indoor and outdoor storage capacity, developing large-scale markets and an efficient compost marketing program were seen to be key to the facility's success. Further, producing a range of quality compost products that are efficacious was also deemed to be of the utmost importance.
