USCC Conducts Second Compost Webinar With Todd Dunderdale

Compost Is Dirty - Episode 2

After a successful premiere episode in May of USCC’s “Compost Is Dirty” webcast series, Todd Dunderdale of Viably (formerly Komptech Americas) will participate in a live online conversation with Frank Franciosi to discuss a variety of topics relevant to commercial composting professionals.

After a productive summer season, commercial composters are finding themselves spending fewer hours in the field as the Fall season approaches. Although workdays may be getting shorter outside, it’s the ideal time for composting professionals to head inside and focus on items that affect the success of their business. However, gaining easy access to new ideas, fresh information and professional perspectives on the world of compost can be easier said than done.

On Tuesday, September 21 at 3:00pm ET, composters across the country will have a unique opportunity to listen in on a live, unscripted, open discussion between two industry experts, as they chat one-on-one on a variety of compost-related topics. In the second episode of the USSC’s “Compost Is Dirty” webinar series, Todd Dunderdale, Senior Sales Manager of Viably (formerly Komptech Americas) sits down virtually with Frank Franciosi, Executive Director of United States Composting Council, to discuss everything “Compost”.

“Our goal with this online discussion is to be able to share some of our own insight and tips with composters to help them improve their composting business and products,” says Todd Dunderdale. “Although our conversation will be unscripted, a few topics we look to cover include Frank’s compost career story, best practices for marketing compost, current challenges composters are facing and more.”


After a successful premiere episode this past May, the next episode of USCC’s “Compost is Dirty” webinar series is set to not only be informative but fun. The webinars are an easy and accessible opportunity for composters to tune in virtually from anywhere to hear from notable compost industry experts on a variety of topics.

Todd Dunderdale has served the organic waste industry for over 20 years. He has helped implement over 200 equipment solutions into the solid and organics waste market. In addition, Todd has been an active member and supporter of the USCC. He recently participated in the USCC Young Professional Mentoring Program and spoke at the COMPOST2021 conference covering compost contamination removal. Todd also holds a Certified Compost Professional (CCP™) certification with the USCC.

“Understanding the science behind producing quality compost is critical. However, adopting a smart business and marketing strategy for your compost products is equally important if you want to survive,” says Todd “In our webinar, Frank and I plan to not only discuss the production side of compost but also explore how a powerful business strategy can help strategically position your compost product and brand in the market.”

Since 2016, Frank Franciosi has held the Executive Director role of both the Compost Research & Education Foundation (CREF) and the US Composting Council (USCC). He has also spent over 28 years working with residuals management and composting, both in operations management as well as sales and marketing. As past principal of Akkadia Consulting, Frank provided professional consulting services on projects of animal waste management, biosolids management, coal ash residuals, composting of industrial residuals, product development and marketing.

“We encourage you to engage with us during the webinar and ask Todd and myself questions,” says Frank. “I look forward to sharing how I began my career into this exciting industry and provide helpful advice and lessons that I’ve learned along the way.”

The need for access to valuable educational and networking opportunities within the compost industry is growing. The second episode of “Compost Is Dirty” will hopefully spark new ideas and enable attendees to return to work with a renewed excitement for their future of composting.
