Abstract: In a composting greenhouse, heat and carbon dioxide are generated from a manure-based compost contained in a special chamber attached to one side of the greenhouse. In-vessel compost units or compost windrows located in a nearby but separate location are an alternative to attached compost chambers. In either case, capturing the heat of combustion and distributing it to the greenhouse itself is a design feature that needs attention.
