  • Municipal solid waste management

    Management of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is one of the most basic obligatory functions of the Urban Local Bodies. In most of the cities, however, the standard of waste management needs improvement. The environmental and health hazards caused by the unsanitary conditions in the cities were epitomised by the episode of plague in Surat in 1994. That triggered public interest litigation in the ...

  • Municipal solid waste management : opportunities for Russia - summary of key findings

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) management system is one of the key components of a country's overall environmental and resource efficiency framework. Inefficient MSW treatment in Russia today is causing both negative environmental impact and results in suboptimal use of raw materials and energy. If Russia optimized its MSW management policy and implements modern technologies, by 2025 it could fully ...

  • Economic insight into municipal solid waste management in Mumbai: a critical analysis

    Mumbai generates 6256 tonnes of waste every day, of which 17.20% is recyclable, but only a fraction of this is retrieved by rag-pickers. The economic value of the retrieved material is not considered by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai in valuing the waste management system as there is no retrieval mechanism except the informal rag-picking activity. Moreover, the cost of land used for ...

  • Life Cycle Assessment technique for sound management of organic municipal solid wastes

    Mauritius generates around 1200 tonnes of municipal solid wastes on a daily basis, out of which more than 60% is of organic nature. The objective of this paper was to evaluate two different strategies for the treatment of organic wastes on a life cycle perspective, namely: composting and Anaerobic Digestion (AD). The functional unit was one ton of organic municipal solid wastes. Windrow ...

  • Mesophilic and thermophilic anaerobic digestion of source-sorted municipal solid waste

    A change in existing collection systems for household waste is presently in progress in many Swedish municipalities. The objective is to separate the decomposable fraction from non-biodegradable waste in order to facilitate biological treatment and recycling of nutrients. The main reason for this development is the effort to replace landfilling of nutrient-rich, wet organic waste with sustainable ...
