Abstract

Unused wood residues can be converted into value-added products such as biogas, gourmet and medicinal mushrooms and also the compost. In this study, lignocellulosic wood waste was used to cultivate wood- inhabiting ligninolytic white-rot Basidiomycetes of the genus Pleurotus. The spent agrowaste was again converted into value added compost by adding Pangamia pinnata (L.) waste seed cake. The enhancement of biogasification potential of waste seed cake, leads to economic returns needed to support ecosystem management. These values include reducing fuels for fire, decreasing pest and disease outbreaks and increasing biodiversity.
