EVALUATING THE QUALITY OF COMPOST WITH MAIN CONSTITUENT AS SEWAGE SLUDGE
Recent days the growing population is increasing the amount of wastewater generated due to which large amount of sludge is produced. The problem of managing the sludge becomes a rising issue. One of the better management for sewage sludge is composting. Composting process is an eco friendly method during which biodegradables are decayed to humus like material. Sewage Sludge consists of rich nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium which are very essential for compost. In addition to sewage sludge many other different wastes are added in a designed proportion. The manure has formed in five weeks with weight reduction of 31.3%. The manure is tested for various parameters and mainly the addition of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium which should be more than 1.5% according to BIS standards has been satisfied.
