Municipal Solid waste represents an attractive resource

Processing MSW can become a profitable business! Every year developing nations spend some US$46 billion on managing their municipal solid waste, and these investments could exceed US$150 billion per year by 2025. JERS advocates a decentralized approach for city waste management.

The ERS unit is installed at the site of waste source and it saves cost on transporting waste to landfills.
Municipal Solid Waste

Municipal Solid waste represents an attractive resource; processing it can become a profitable business! 

So far, no scientific techniques are implemented to Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) in most of the developing countries. The waste collected in the city in un-segregated form is brought to transfer stations followed by dumping in open landfills. If one such landfill reaches critical volume it is burnt to reduce the volume of waste or dumped in new landfill. Source segregation, which is crucial in Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM), is rarely followed in third world countries. The Open- to-air composting systems being followed by most of the municipalities in developing countries has evolved from pre-historic times to the present windrow methods. Though composting is an age-old process, lots of technological advancements have happened in this bioprocess. Every year developing nations spend some US$46 billion on managing their municipal solid waste, and these investments could exceed US$150 billion per year by 2025. Public authorities are finding it difficult to raise the necessary finance to meet these costs

ERS method of Rapid High Speed Composting
The Centralized Waste Management that is prevalent in most countries poses problems in that the wastes are not collected in an efficient manner. It is thus a common sight to see overflowing garbage bins at the public collection sites. JERS advocates a decentralized approach for city waste management. One of the obvious advantages of a decentralized system is the improved aesthetic condition in the locality. The localized collection and processing of wastes, avoids the carting of wastes to far off dumping sites. It reduces the expenditure of imported diesel, consequent traffic congestions, air pollution and road maintenance costs. It also reduces the contamination of ground water through the seepage of leachates.
  • The ERS technology is simple and compact.
  • The ERS unit is installed at the site of waste source and it saves cost on transporting waste to landfills.
  • The unit ensures that there is no bad odor or green house gasses, thereby protecting the environment within city limits. Part of the processed compost can be sprinkled over fresh garbage as deodorizer, as the compost will degrade the ammonium generated by anaerobic fermentation.
  • It has low operating cost, considering that the energy supplies are only ‘Steam’ and ‘Electricity’. The Fermenting heat is also recycled.
