TAILIEUCHUNG - Energy production through co-fermentation of organic waste and Septage in Nashik City, India

The Urban Environment is important for all of us, not least because so many of us live in cities. Cleaner city, healthy life and a better environment are important demands for city dwellers. Due to increase in urbanization rate, population density and per capita production of solid waste is also increasing. According to MSW Rules, 2000, every municipal authority is responsible for setting up a waste processing and disposal facility. Approximately 50 million metric tonnes (115,000 metric tonnes per day) of solid waste is generated every year by the urban population in India. The per capita generation of waste in Indian cities ranges from kg to kg/capita/day depending upon population size and its socio-economic profile. The quantity and composition of MSW vary from place to place, and bear a rather consistent correlation with the average standard of living. The Nashik city is forth largest urbanised (population) and third most industrialized city in Maharashtra after Mumbai and Pune, its also known as "Wine Capital of India". | Energy production through co-fermentation of organic waste and Septage in Nashik City India
