This study involved visits to several composting and composting distribution operations, extensive literature review, and interviews with users in several metropolitan areas. Existing and past compost and sludge product distribution operations were analyzed to determine the characteristics of the successful operations and the factors that may have led to lack of success or failure of others. Results of the study indicate that demand already exists for wastewater sludge compost in certain metropolitan areas and that this demand was developed by implementing a planned program. Similar wastewater sludge product distribution operations have failed in the past because of high pricing or poorly planned programs. A broad characterization of user requirements and desires was developed based on user interviews.
