The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is now producing – and sellTitan Gold Bagging Equipmenting – organic compost.

Named Titan Gold, the compost is produced by UW Oshkosh’s dry fermentation anaerobic biodigester, which is fueled from local food, farm and yard waste and located near campus.

The byproduct, which was originally being used as only a renewable energy source, is now also being used to generate compost.

UW Oshkosh has one of only 10 STA certified labs in the country.
