  • Performance analysis of a co-gasifier for organic waste in agriculture

    Background:Agricultural waste has been proposed as an alternative energy resource to meet fossil fuel crisis, green house emission, and other environmental impacts worldwide. In Iran, rice husk and bagasse are main resources of biomass which can be used to produce syngas. This paper deals with a simplified model of combined gasification of coal and biomass processes considering chemical ...

  • 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 ...

  • The localization of agriculture

    In the United States, there has been a surge of interest in eating fresh local foods, corresponding with mounting concerns about the climate effects of consuming food from distant places and about the obesity and other health problems associated with junk food diets. This is reflected in the rise in urban gardening, school gardening, and farmers’ markets. With the fast-growing local foods ...

  • Agricultural Use of Different Residual Waste Composts - Current Situation and Experiences in France

    ABSTRACT Quality standards have been recently established in France for sewage sludge composts and other urban composts (greenwaste, biowaste and municipal solid waste composts). These standards allow to guarantee the innocuousness of the composts. Other standards have been defined in order to predict the compost effects on soil properties: the index of biological stability (ISB), based on ...

  • Database “organic and mineral residues”

    In the spirit of the material recycling concept in Germany (KrW-/AbfG, 1994), wastes are to be recycled as completely as possible, avoiding any impairment for mankind and the environment. In this connection, avoidance of material burdens by excessive nutrient and pollutant discharge is particularly important in the treatment, recycling and bringing into circulation of waste materials for re-use ...

  • Introduction of composted digestates in agriculture

    Municipal organic waste is increasingly recycled by aerobic composting or anaerobic digestion procedures. In 1997, 230 000 Mg organic waste were composted and used for agriculture in the region of Cologne, which is an increase by 70% compared to 1994 (Anonymous, 1999). Therefore, the effects of compost on the soil and the plants require studies on:- its nutrient contents to contribute to the ...

  • Application of rural slaughterhouse waste as an organic fertilizer for pot cultivation of solanaceous vegetables in India

    Background:The lack of electricity and water supply in rural abattoirs in developing nations prevents the adoption of waste-processing technologies practiced in economically advanced countries. This research attempts to recycle waste blood and rumen digesta generated in rural slaughterhouses as organic fertilizer, thus promoting sustainable agriculture. Results:The values of 5-day biochemical ...

  • Value of composted organic wastes as an alternative to synthetic fertilizers for soil quality improvement and increased yield

    One of the major problems with agricultural soils in the tropical region of the western Pacific islands is their low organic matter content, which results from rapid decomposition due to the hot and humid environment. Composted organic material is frequently applied on agricultural fields as an amendment to provide nutrients and also to increase the organic matter content and to improve the ...

  • In-Vessel Composting of Residential Organics

    In 1994, the Regional Municipality of Peel began work on a system for residential organic residuals collection and composting. Although Peel had been promoting backyard composting, greater diversion rates were sought. The public was surveyed to determine what level of cooperation could be expected for source separation and setting out of food, soiled paper products, yard trimmings, etc. “We knew ...

  • The CAMBI process and agriculture, a sustainable solution?

    Abstract Both public acceptance and interest from farmers for spreading biosolids from waste water treatment plants (wwpt) on arable land, are dependent on some fundamental criteria. These criteria are, however, quite straightforward. The biosolids should be safe, easy to handle, a well documented source of plant nutrition, without disagreeable odours and easily available. A big part of the ...
