Solid Waste Treatment

Solid waste is generic term that covers wide variety of material not only solid, but semi-solid or liquid. Treatment of solid waste is important aspect of environmental sustainability. Canada and US one of the largest producer of solid waste in the World. In 2019 annual waste production for Canada was 36.1 metric tonnes per capita, while annual waste production of United States was 25.9 metric tonnes per capita (USA Today). Most of solid waste materials are still buried in landfill sites with no prior treatment, excluding removal of materials good for recycling.

Different methods exist for organic waste treatment. They include composting, gasification, pyrolysis and incineration. One of the commonly used methods with high rate of sustainability is composting. Simply piling up organic material and letting it rot will never result in high-quality compost.

Composting

Composting is a key component in a sustainable waste management program. About 60% of household waste, and almost 100% of agricultural waste is material for composting. In addition, composting diverts materials from landfill and results in generation of valuable product for soil amendment. Using composted materials in the garden improves soil fertility without the use of chemical or peat-based products. Organic farming is one of the examples of how valuable and efficient composting can be for agriculture.

Osorno also can offer technology of composting on industrial scale, when the size of the composting pile is around 20 tonnes. Osorno’s CompoFlex® technology is an in-vessel controlled composting process. It yields a high quality, pathogen-free and weed-free compost called The NutriPlenish®. Any organic solid or semi-solid waste is a good material for composting. These materials include farm waste, manure solids, biosolids, slaughtering waste, municipal solid waste (garbage). CompoFlex® process generates biologically stable compost within two to three weeks. Compost generated by CompoFlex® process after curing is ready for the field application.
