For experiments laboratory reactors in volume 105 l have been used. 3 Humidity Passive humidity of 60–70 % had the temperature peak arising between 2 and 6 day of composting. After 6 day of composting the moisture content did not render any influence on a temperature mode of process because of loss of moisture in a mix. The interrelation between number Grasholff (GR—the relation of buoyancy to force of internal friction) and speed convection an air stream has been established. 7 mg of dry air/kg s of dry material compost from 0 up to 20 day accordingly for all samples compost.

The highest allocation of СН4, СО2 and N2O was observed in the beginning of storage manure lying in a clamp when the temperature rose and by that conditions for development thermophile microorganisms were created. It is possible to make the conclusion of these data, that thermophile microorganisms first of all influence formation of hotbed gas. It has been established, that by the most important gas determining global warming in environment, is N2O (Wallace et al. 1992). In this connection to punched manure as already it was marked earlier, began to add loading, providing partial adsorption of allocated gases and increase in process of aeration, for example straw, sawdust, shavings, household dust and even deposits of sewage (Imbeah 1998; Walsh et al.

Good correlation between change of temperature, clearing СО2 and allocation NH3 was observed (Atkinson et al. 1996). In this connection separate researchers recommend to spend composting at passive or natural aeration which though proceeds with slower speed, but provides fuller maturing compost and does not demand high monetary expenses (Hemmat et al. 2010; Jolanun and Towprayoon 2010; Bustamante et al. 2011; Turrión et al. 2012). Parallel experiments on influence of various kinds of aeration on quality compost have shown, that any processes of artificial aeration reduce time composting, however on occassion, can worsen quality compost.
