  • 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 ...

  • Recycling agriculture wastes of ramie stalk as bioadsorbents for Cd2+ removal: a kinetic and thermodynamic study

    In this study, we exhibit the recycling of agriculture wastes of ramie stalk as bioadsorbents for Cd2+ removal. Based on our experimental results, it is realized that Cd2+ adsorption to ramie stalk is highly pH sensitive, indicating the adsorption is driven by surface complexation reaction. The high adsorption capacity of ramie stalk toward Cd2+ (qm = 10.33 mg ...

  • Recycling of raw corn cob residues as an agricultural waste material for ammonium removal: kinetics, isotherms, and mechanisms

    Corn cob is an agricultural by-product worldwide available in large amounts. In this study, the potential of raw corn cob as a natural lignocellulosic waste material of no economic value was investigated for the removal of ammonium ions from aqueous solution. Sorption capacities of raw granular corn cob (GCC) for ammonium ions were evaluated in simulated and actual wastewater samples. The FT-IR ...

  • 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 ...

  • Composting of vegetable waste in subtropical climates

    This experiment examined the possibility of using composting as a method of waste disposal in subtropical countries, such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where temperatures are high and humidity is low. In order to simulate conditions in the UAE, a representative mixture of wastes generated in the UAE was prepared and tested at ambient temperatures resembling those of subtropical countries. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vermicomposting biotechnology: recycling of palm oil mill wastes into valuable products

    Abstract Background Palm oil mill effluent and palm press fiber are problematic wastes generated by the palm oil mill industries in Malaysia. This study has endeavored to assess the possibility of the vermicomposting of residue from the palm oil mills using epigeic earthworms Lumbricus rubellus under laboratory conditions. The study was conducted over 50 days using four combinations in ...

  • Compost stability: a comparative evaluation of respirometric techniques

    The new Paradigm in waste management promotes attitudes and processes that conserve resources and reduce pollution. Under this philosophy, organic waste is increasingly recognised as a recyclable material, a useful resource, making composting one of the key elements of modern waste management. As the composting industry is expanding rapidly there is a growing need for a simple, fast, relatively ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ethanol Fundamentals

    What’s Ethanol? Ethanol is an alcohol-based alternative fuel produced from crops such as corn, barley, and wheat or from 'cellulosic biomass' such as trees and grasses. Brazil and the US together account for nearly 70% of global ethanol production. Virtually all US ethanol requirements today are satisfied by domestic production. Today All gasoline vehicles are capable of operating on ...

  • New study finds recycled phosphorus could fertilize 100 percent of U.S. corn

    The world has a problem. A phosphorus problem. Needed to fertilize crops, the bulk of phosphorus comes from nonrenewable phosphate rock. While China mines the most — producing almost half the world’s phosphorus — Morocco alone controls three-fourths of global phosphate rock reserves. Year by year those global reserves ...

  • Boosting Compost Markets : Iowa Studies Ways to Control Highway Erosion

    EROSION during and after road construction creates large amounts of silt, which deteriorates water quality and causes ecological problems. Iowa agencies continue to conduct studies to verify the value of compost as an economical way to prevent runoff along the state’s 100,000 miles of roadway. Next month will begin the second half of a two-year research project that involves the Iowa Department ...
