Trends in Organic Waste Management

Description:Organic waste is a by-product of daily life, and in our modern urban environment – is mostly managed out of sight.Organic waste is either liquid or solid. Liquid waste is piped behind walls, and under buildings, roads and parks to wastewater treatment plants,where it is treated and processed so that it is safe for discharge to the environment. Solids resulting from this treatment are further processed,typically to produce biosolids which can offer the opportunity for beneficial reuse. At large wastewater treatment plants, anaerobic digestion is used to generate energy from the processing of solids.
