  • Challenges and chances for organic waste Management in Australia

    As in many other countries, waste management in Australia was seen as little more than providing adequate waste collection services and landfill disposal sites until recently. Waste was not seen as a problem, prompting waste generation rates per capita to reach a very high level. Understandably so, since a mere 18 million Australians occupy a vast land area with seemingly abundant space for ...

  • Battling the waste sector´s common enemy: moisture content

    Moisture content has always been a barrier to maximizing profit from many waste streams. The problematic moisture content is mainly contained in the cell structure of organic materials. Conventional mechanical and thermal dryers like belt, drum, and liquidized bed dryers can’t open the cell structures of organic material and remove the moisture inside. Any dryer with mechanical pulverizing ...

  • Breaching Discharge Consent

    Cleveland Biotech has developed the Baccelerator, a mobile bacterial activation unit. It is capable of growing up specifically tailored bacteria on-site and delivering those continuously into a WWTW. The unit is ideal for dealing with STW's failing consent or industrial efflulent streams that are having trouble degrading a particular organic waste compound. ...

  • Relative efficacy of two methods of vermicomposting for bio-degradation of organic wastes

    Two methods of vermicomposting were used for the bio-degradation of organic wastes, viz., the pit method and the heap method. The efficacy of these two methods was compared under field conditions over three seasons (winter, summer and rainy) by using one of the most promising composting worm species, Eisenia fetida. One hundred adult earthworms (Eisenia fetida) were released in each pit and heap. ...

  • Management of organic wastes by earthworms: dual benefit for environment and society

    In the present study, two earthworm species, Eisenia fetida and Eudrilus eugeniae were employed to degrade the vegetable wastes and agro-residues. Chemical analysis of the vermicomposts derived from vegetable wastes showed that the quantity of organic carbon was reduced from 42.1% to 31.19 and 30.19% by E. fetida and E. eugeniae, respectively. The level of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and ...

  • Influence of the comminution of organic waste on their biodegradability

    Organic solids are present in very large quantities as products or waste from agriculture, food industry, household and many other fields. The disposal of organic waste can be realised using biological processes like anaerobic digestion or aerobic composting. The anaerobic digestion has advantages in comparison to composting such as a better handling of wet waste, the production of useful ...

  • Treating organic waste with Cambi THP

    ABSTRACT This paper describes how the Cambi Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) treats biodegradable organic waste and converts it to renewable energy and pathogen-free and bio-fertilizer. The interest for the process is expected to increase due to new environmental legislation as well as increasing demand for renewable energy. The implementation of the European Landfill Directive 1999/31EC and the ...

  • Application of different organic wastes on soil properties and wheat yield

    Fresh and composted organic wastes [beet vinasse (BV), sewage sludge (SS), and a cotton gin crushed compost (CCGC)], were applied for 4 yr to a Typic Xerofluvent in dryland conditions near Seville, Spain. Organic wastes were applied at rates of 5, 7.5, and 10 Mg organic matter ha–1, respectively. The effect on the soil's physical properties, soil microbial biomass, and six soil enzymatic ...

  • A growing problem for the world’s well being

    On the face of it, organic waste is not a major problem. After all, the definition of organic waste is ‘materials that originated from living organisms’. In other words, biodegradable materials that come from either a plant or an animal. The fact is, however, that the rapidly expanding levels of organic waste are now the cause of worrying forecasts and it is why more and more ...

  • Comparison of Capacity Factors in Anaerobic Digestion of Organic Waste in the UK

    The ranking was made based on the ratio between the gross electrical production of the plant during 2014 and the registered capacity of the plant under Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) scheme. The data on the electrical production of the plants is publically available through Ofgem  (The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets) which is responsible for the issuance of ...

  • Status and trends for biomass use and consequences for waste management - the example of Germany

    While separate collection and treatment of organic waste in Germany had a magnitude of 100.000 Mg in 1985 it currently extends to 8.2 Mio. Mg of which about 50% each refers to biowaste and green waste respectively. However, a further potential of 8 million Mg of organic waste collected with other residual waste still exists. Rapidly increasing costs for the treatment of residual waste coupled ...

  • Converting wet organic waste, black bag waste, as well as MRF residuals into solid recovered fuel (SRF) is now possible

    With China closing its doors to lower-grade recyclables, and with composting programs continuing to underperform, keeping this material out of landfill is becoming an increasing challenge. The largest problem has always been moisture content. What if you could turn all this waste (except for metals and inerts) into high-quality SRF without having to separate it, and without the need for ...

  • Anaerobic digestion in Sweden - status and experiences

    The implementation of biogas technology has in general increased in Sweden over the last 4-5 years. The main reason for this development is the effort to replace landfilling of nutrient-rich, wet organic waste with sustainable alternatives. In accordance with the EU directive on landfilling, a tax on putting organic waste into landfills will be introduced the 1st of January 2000, together with a ...

  • Bio-conversion of organic waste using composting technologies – a review

    Composting is nowadays evolving as a highly technical process for processing organic waste separately replacing landfilling along with municipal solid waste. Vegetable waste with high organic content can be composted to produce nutrient rich material that can work as soil conditioner instead of dumping in open landfills. Various studies reveal that due to high organic content of vegetable waste ...

  • Conversion of solid organic waste into compost using Trichoderma spp. and its application on some selected vegetables

    This study was conducted to evaluate the potentiality of Trichoderma species as a bio-conversion agent for composting of solid organic waste and examine the effects of produced composts on the growth of two types of vegetables. The experiments were conducted both in vitro and in vivo processes. In vitro conversion of solid organic waste, the highest height and weight losses were found 42.64 ...

  • Management of organic content in municipal solid waste - a case study of Lahore

    Poor solid waste management (SWM) is one of the leading obstacles for absolute clean and healthy environment. Growing economy of Lahore has rapidly increased growth rate which in turn has flared solid waste generation. Municipal solid waste is contributing heavily to air, water and land pollution and a major portion of municipal waste is organic. Generally considered unfruitful, this organic ...
