AEROBIC CO COMPOSTING OF ORGANIC FRACTION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE AND SUGAR MILL WASTE

G. MANJULA AND T. MEENAMBAL

Abstract

Over the last few years, the rate of urbanization has increased manifold in Coimbatore city, India, leading to increased amount of solid waste generation which in turn causes disposal problems. The amount of waste generated has accelerated with growth in population. Hence the problem of solid waste management in urban areas is among the major challenges faced by governing bodies. In this study, a series of experimental studies were conducted with regard to bioconversion of organic fraction of Municipal solid waste along with sugar mill waste at different C/N ratios. About 10 kg of shredded waste containing Sugar mill waste, Saw dust and Municipal solid waste was placed in reactors in different proportions and 100 mL of effective micro-organisms was added to it. The variation in physical and chemical parameters was monitored throughout the process. The results indicate that co composting of sugar mill waste with Municipal solid waste produces high quality compost which can be used as soil conditioner.
