Abstract

QUANTIFICATION, CHARACTERIZATION AND FEASIBILITY OF FOOD WASTE FOR ORGANIC FERTILIZER BY COMPOSTING

Eshwer Lal*, Muhammad Safar Korai, Khan Muhammad Brohi and Pardeep Kumar

ABSTRACT

Municipal solid waste is major factor that contaminates the environment and causes water, air, and soil pollution. Many developed countries are working on recycling organic waste into useful energy potential. The food and yard wastes are openly dumped and burnt in atmosphere which causes environmental pollution. To characterize and quantify food waste, 64 samples were collected from Higher Staff Colony, Junior Staff Colony, Boys Hostels, Girls Hostels and Canteens of the University. The different components of food waste such as kitchen waste, vegetable waste and fruit wastes were segregated, quantified, and characterized by using standard methodology. The percentage of moisture content, total solids, volatile matters, ash contents and fixed carbon as well as percentage of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen were determined. The results of study showed that food generation rate is 110kg/day which is enough to convert into useful compost by composting process. The characterization results of food waste led to recommend that food waste is more feasible for compost product rather than burning along with other components of waste.
