Manure & Agri Residues

Due to increase in population, there is an intensive increase in volume and type of waste agricultural biomass or Agri residues as well as livestock production which becoming a serious problem as rotten agricultural waste and animal waste (manure) emits methane and leachate, and open burning of these waste by farmer increase the level of pollution in the atmosphere. These improper managements of agricultural waste and manure will lead to the climate change and soil and water contamination and cause air pollution. In order to manage agricultural and manure waste, proper solid waste management is required which not only solve the problem of waste disposal but also convert waste into energy/fuel as well as bio-fertilizer. Hence it is important to create awareness and to build capacity to promote solid waste management based on 3Rs i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.Technologies for processing & treatment of solid waste are Composting, Anaerobic Digestion/Bio-methanation, Incineration, Gasification/pyrolysis, Plasma Technologies, Production of Drop in Fuels (DIF) etc.
