The anaerobic treatment is in growing demand as an advanced methodology rendering sustainable treatment option for organic wastes. The Anaerobic digester sludge (ADS) is the product of anaerobic digestion of organic matter by microbial activity in an oxygen-deficit environment. It is a good supplement to soil as it enriches soil with nutrients, increases the availability of minerals to plants and helps in soil conditioning. Though ADS is frequently used in agriculture, there are opinions supporting the fact that ADS contains more recalcitrant than its nutritional components. Hence, there is a need for the post-processing of ADS to make it compatible for soil application. In the present study, an attempt has made to assess the response of ADS for CA aided composting and to study the effectiveness composting on the quality of finished compost.
