    Bean curd dreg (BCD) is a by-product of bean products, which can be used as a great ingredient for composting, but it combined with cow manure and corn stalk composting was rarely reported. In this study, the effect of BCD on the maturity and the micro-ecological environment was investigated under a lab-scale composting experiment and found that BCD was conducive to improve the maturity of compost during the BCD application. The excitation-emission matrix (EEM) showed that the final humus content in BCD treatments was richer than that in CK treatment. High-throughput sequencing results showed that BCD-applied better ameliorated the bacteria community structure with higher Actinomycetes abundance and lower denitrifying bacteria abundance in the late stage of composting. PICRUSt results showed that BCD-added decreased the abundance of microbial metabolic genes in the high temperature period (> 70 °C), but the metabolic abundance increased rapidly as the temperature cooled down. Compared with CK, the metabolic abundance decreased significantly on day 24, which was consistent with the conclusion of composting maturity. Redundancy analysis (RDA) results indicated that there were significant discrepancies in the microbial community structure of samples at different composting periods and the change of the dominant population in the BCD-treated compost samples were more outstanding than that in the CK treatment. Hence, BCD is a very good composting modifier that compensates for the disadvantages of composting and enhances the fertility of the compost product.
