The organic content of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) tends to decompose leading to various smell and odour problems. To ensure the safe disposal of municipal solid waste it is desirable to reduce its pollution potential and several processing methods are proposed for this purpose. MSW includes the residential, commercial, and institutional solid waste generated within a community. MSW composting is the process by which the organic, biodegradable portion of MSW is microbiologically degraded under aerobic conditions.
During the process of degradation, bacteria are used to decompose and break down the organic matter into water and carbon dioxide , which produces large amounts of heat and water vapor in the process. Given sufficient oxygen and optimum temperatures, the composting process achieves a high degree of volume reduction and also generates a stable end product called compost that can be used for mulching, soil amendment, and soil enhancement.
Uses of Compost
Composting process is quite commonly used and results in production of stable products. compost which depending upon its quality can be used as a low-grade manure and soil conditioner.
The process results in conservation of natural resources and is an important processing method, especially in agricultural and horticultural areas. As a form of solid waste management, MSW composting reduces the amount of waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. Organic Composting Powder contains multiple species of microorganisms to convert or degrade complex waste into a rich natural resource of fertilizer to be used for plants, nursery, agriculture & gardens etc.
