  • Composting of municipal waste in Poland

    Composting constitute an important element of the integrated systems of municipal waste management, which is being developed these days. In such systems, the process is employed mainly in the treatment of selectively collected biologically degradable moist waste coming from kitchens, gardening and municipal green places. The biological treatment of mixed municipal waste, however, is employed ...

  • Co-composting of sewage sludge and municipal solid waste

    Israel production of sewage sludge and MSW grows each year due to the increasing number of modern Wastewater plants that are using activated sludge process and the increasing population. Non-stabilized Sewage sludge is an environmental nuisance due to high level of pathogens, offensive odours, insect attraction and potential water sources pollution. The Haifa region itself, where the study took ...

  • Composting of Municipal Solid Waste through chemical pretreatment

    Composting is one of the viable options for bioprocessing of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). An important aspect of the composting process is the period required for attaining stability/maturity, and the quality of compost. In order to enhance the rate of degradation and improve the quality of compost, several pretreatments on MSW were investigated. Chemical pretreatment with low strength NaOH ...

  • Carbon credit from composting of municipal solid waste

    The estimation of carbon credit from composting of MSW has been presented in this paper. The Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) used in formation of windrow was collected from the NERIST campus. Loss on Ignition (LOI) was measured which represents the amount of carbon and remaining ash in solid waste samples after ignition. As an absolute measure of biodegradable carbon, LOI provides an excellent ...

  • Municipal waste management & handling

    Several MSW management practices, such as source reduction, recycling, and composting, prevent or divert materials from the wastestream. Source reduction involves altering the design, manufacture, or use of products and materials to reduce the amount and toxicity of what gets thrown away. Recycling diverts items, such as paper, glass, plastic, and metals, from the wastestream. These materials are ...

  • Efficiencies of select vector repellents during composting of Municipal Solid Waste

    Presently, most preferred mode of treatment of Municipal Solid Wastes (MSW) is composting. However, this may lead to health hazard because of the potential presence of pathogens, and vector borne insects, rodents etc., in the compost. Field studies were undertaken towards use of Folidol (organophosphate) and Celrich (biopesticide) as repellents of vectors while composting of MSW. At 0.05 kg m−2 ...

  • Composting of municipal green waste using a hybrid Mode of the aerated static pile

    The aerated static pile (ASP) system developed in Rutgers University (Finstein et al., 1980) is based on a deep understanding of composting as a microbial process. It allows for a good degree of process control and high organic matter stabilisation rates, with relatively low labour and cost. For these reasons, the ASP system has been intensively studied with, among others, the following aims: ...

  • The physical, chemical and microbial characteristics of biodegradable municipal waste derived composts

    A comparative study of the physical, chemical and microbial properties of 12 composts sourced from United Kingdom commercial composting plants was carried out. The aim was to ascertain whether these composts could be used as growing media or for application to agricultural land. The composts were produced from either source segregated biodegradable municipal waste (BMW) or mixed municipal solid ...

  • Compost production from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) employing bioinoculants

    The effect of antibiotic producer fungi (Penicillium chrysogenum, P. funiculosum) and free living nitrogen fixing bacteria (Azotobacter chroococcum) on the quality of vermicompost prepared from MSW was observed in the present study. Prior to vermicomposting of MSW the interaction studies among bioinoculants and E. fetida, in Farm Yard Manure (FYM), was also carried out to see the effect of ...

  • New technology for municipal scale compost operations

    There is a new facility located in Ontario, Canada that accepts construction and demolition waste (C&D) and 100,000 TPY of source separated organics (SSO) waste. The owners chose a new non-thermal plasma (NTP) system to control the odor in its 120,000 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) air emissions. This NTP system is very compact, fits easily on a platform, is configured as a number of ...

  • Mixed waste composting trends

    It's been about 25 years since vendors started marketing systems to process mixed municipal solid waste via composting in the U.S. Today, there are 13 plants, most fulfilling their niche in the communities they serve - whether managing MSW in high tourism areas, or processing residual organics from materials recovery facilities. Table 1 provides summary data on the 13 facilities. While we did not ...

  • An evaluation of breeding conditions of flies and optimum food waste rations for effective composting in Municipal Solid Waste composting site in Southern Sri Lanka

    Composting is effective way of solving problems associated with solid waste management. Some of the main issues associated with municipal solid waste composting are the increase of food waste percentage and development of breeding conditions favourable for various fly species causing public health issues. Experimental composting piles were constructed by changing food waste composition (0%, 25%, ...

  • Co-composting as an oxygen stabilization of an organic fraction of municipal solid waste and industrial sewage sludge

    The purpose of this work is to study the characteristics of the co-composting of municipal solid waste (MSW), sewage sludge, grass and sawdust. Differing proportions of biodegradable waste were investigated through changes of temperature, oxygen consumption, organic matters, moisture content, carbon, nitrogen, C/N ratio as well as heavy metals and pathogen microorganisms content. The present ...

  • Perspectives of composting and anaerobic digestion technologies for the treatment of organic fraction of municipal solid waste in Europe and Asia

    The development and implementation level of composting and anaerobic digestion technologies for municipal biowaste management in Europe and Asia are different in many aspects. The progress of these technologies generally depends on the lifestyle, waste generation rate, waste characteristics, awareness level, acceptability, market value and other economic factors. In Europe, regulatory directives ...

  • Home composting of organic waste - part 1: effect of home composter design

    Worldwide, health and environmental considerations encourage landfill diversion of the organic fraction (OW) of municipal solid wastes, through alternative such as home composting. Of poor sanitation, and trace element and toxic hydrocarbon content (PAH) documentation, this study compared against a laboratory composter (LR), the performance (temperature regime and compost quality) of four 300 to ...

  • Assessing Municipal Solid Wastes (MSWs) for composting programmes in rapidly urbanising areas: a case study from Accra, Ghana

    A complete understanding of all physico-chemical and biochemical attributes of waste stream materials is necessary for successful implementation of waste management programmes in given context because of their influence on the behaviour of these materials in the natural environment. This paper discusses these properties of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) to gauge its suitability for sustainable ...

  • Fluorescence characteristic changes of dissolved organic matter during municipal solid waste composting

    Dissolved organic matter (DOM) of municipal solid waste (MSW) consists of minerals, water, ash and humic substances, and is known to enhance plant growth. In this study, inoculating microbes (ZJ, MS) were used in municipal solid wastes composting, and composting implemented a industrialized technology. During composting, dissolved organic matter was extracted from the compost and purified. The ...

  • Utilisation of Municipal Solid Waste Compost as landfill cover soil for reducing greenhouse gas emission

    Municipal Solid Waste Compost (MSW-C) was introduced for improving landfill cover soil properties and enhancing methane oxidation. The landfill cover soil was irrigated with leachate for maintaining appropriate moisture content for methane oxidation reaction. It was found that MSW-C was an effective landfill cover material for landfill gas emission control exhibiting the highest Methane Oxidation ...
