ORGANIC WASTE CONVERTERS Waste is nothing but unwanted material created from our day to day activities. It is generated from our room, house, office etc. Disposal of waste in the open may have hazardous impacts on the environment. Waste cannot be left as it is and therefore it is quite obvious that we need to dispose of this waste in the most sustainable, economical and eco-friendly manner. Segregation of waste thus becomes one of the most important steps in waste management. Waste is segregated in two different categories: Wet waste (Biodegradable) constitutes wasted food, vegetable and fruit peels, paper, eggs, coconut shells, hair, dust, fallen leaves etc. Dry waste (Non- biodegradable) constitutes plastic, glass, broken toys, MS material etc. The management and handling procedure of different types of waste is different. This is because, the toxic compounds that might be present in one type, may be absent in the other. Mother Nature recycles many types of waste material. However, we are producing more waste than nature is capable of recycling and thus it results in pollution. In urban areas, waste including human excreta and waste from polluting industries is disposed through sewers. This pollutes the environment, underground water and exposes people to infection and other diseases. Open decomposition of solid waste and sewer water through existing river systems, takes very long to be treated naturally, thus causing many health hazards. Composting is the process in which the organic waste is degraded and converted into manure by the use of culture media. Composting is done using microorganisms, fungi or earthworms. For limited quantity of waste, the seven-pit method is used and operated. However, this takes a long time and requires constant monitoring. Hence for huge quantity of waste generated, organic waste converters (OWCs) are used.
