  • 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 ...

  • Emerging Waste Conversion Technologies

    Today, people and companies are more aware and concerned about the environment than ever before. Everyone is looking for ways to reduce waste or convert organic waste into something more useful. The Federal Government has introduced a renewable energy policy and is continuing to fund for new waste conversion technology. It is now important for local governments to portray their cities and towns ...

  • European Experiences With the Treatment and Digestion of Bio-Organic Waste

    In the area of waste management environmental awareness has essentially increased and according technologies got more and more accepted in Europe within more than ten years now. During all the time BTA has gathered experiences by developing and realising flexible concepts for biowaste treatment plants of different design and capacities for the treatment of various waste streams: full scale plants ...

  • Use of vermicomposting biotechnology for recycling organic wastes in agriculture

    Recent trend of declining sustainability in agricultural production is appearing as a major threat to most of the Asian countries. To combat the situation, increasing importance is now being paid on incorporation of organic materials for rejuvenating the health condition and, hence, the productivity of these soils. Large scale availability of conventional organic manures being a big problem ...

  • Environmental analysis of management systems for organic waste

    Organic waste is generally easily degradable and has a high nutrient content. Thus the risk is large that the handling of such material will generate emissions that affect the environment. New systems have been introduced for managing organic waste fractions from households and industries. These systems are based on source separation and biological treatment, e.g. composting and anaerobic ...

  • Treatment of organic wastes in malaysia . Problems and Prospects

    Solid waste is one of the biggest environmental problems in Malaysia (Hassan et al. 1995). The amount generated continues to increase in response to rapid increase in population and accelerated urbanisation and industrialization processes. Immediate and long-term strategies are required to ensure that the country’s rapid economic growth is not achieved at the expense of massive pollution ...

  • Digester Developers Target Mixed Organic Waste Streams

     emerging group of commercial companies see a viable business opportunity in North America around building, owning and operating larger scale anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities to process mixed organic waste streams. In some instances, the projects being proposed and constructed only include anaerobic digester operations. In others, there is a combination of digestion with back-end ...

  • Carbon offsets from organic waste conversion projects

    The Climate Act ion Reserve (the Reserve) has long had a protocol to give credit for the capture and destruction of methane emissions from organic waste in landfills, but they have now opened up the possibility of credits for projects that prevent that waste from entering landfills in the first place. In October 2009, the Reserve adopted the Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol, covering both ...

  • Electrochemical Oxidation Of Organic Pollutants

    Abstract The main aim this paper is to use 'Electrochemical Technology for removal of Organic Pollutants from Waste Water'. Today hazardous waste management has become one of the most challenging tasks to this technological world because tons of organic pollutants including various carcinogens are being exposed without the sufficient treatment prescribed as per the 'ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ...


  • MPPE Technology for the Elimination of Organic Components Dispersed and Dissolved in Groundwater

    Summary Since 1994 Akzo Nobel innovated with a new technology based on Macro Porous Polymer (MPP) engineered to remove dispersed and dissolved pollutants such as : Ar, Al, chlorinated, PAH, CS2… to below 1 ppb, helping the industry to recycle and to reuse their waste and process waters, and to solve in a cost efficient way their groundwater contamination including chlorinated pollutions such as ...

  • Potential of hydrogen production from organic Urban Solid Waste fermentation in Mexico

    Mexico generated 35.4 million tons of urban solid wastes in 2005 of which 51% were organic ones. This biomass can be fermented into H2 when H2-based technologies increase their market penetration for the year 2020. The purpose of this work was to review studies that have utilised organic solid wastes for fermentative H2 production and to evaluate the potential for Mexico. The experimental H2 ...

  • On the pre–treatment of municipal organic waste towards fuel production: a review

    Lignocelluloses are the main constituents of municipal organic waste (MOW). In order to increase the production of fuels, via fermentations, the enzymatic hydrolysis is the first step towards a valorisation process. It is well–known that the hydrolysis of lignocelluloses is not very effective because of the high stability of the constituents. In this respect the pre–treatment of MOW is necessary ...
