  • 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 ...

  • Multi-Criteria Decision Making and composting of waste in the municipality of Bacoor in the Philippines

    Choosing the most appropriate and practical strategy for solid waste management is a complex undertaking. It requires the identification of relevant perspectives, meaningful criteria, and sound evaluation method. The municipality of Bacoor in the Philippines used Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) method to arrive at a chosen waste management strategy ? composting ? from a holistic set of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Effect of feeding efficient microbial community on aerobic composting of municipal waste and excrement

    Each of the total 13 strains of bacteria was isolated based on the characteristics of municipal waste and excrement, which include 6 strains of bacterium, 4 strains of streptomyces and 3 strains of actinomycetes; all of these were appropriate for aerobic composting. The Efficient Microbial Community (EMC) was constructed by these strains combination at certain ratios. A series of experiments were ...

  • 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 ...

  • The effects of municipal solid waste compost and compost tea on mineral element uptake and fruit quality of strawberries

    Three levels of municipal solid waste compost (MSWC) and two application rates of compost tea made with MSWC were applied to strawberries for two years. The highest level of application of MSWC significantly increased the concentrations of most extractable soil mineral elements except for Ni which was increased in the highest compost tea application rate. Despite large differences in soil mineral ...
