Aerobic thermophilic composting of waste sludge from gelatin-grenetine industry



Aerobic thermophilic composting of waste sludge from gelatin-grenetine industry



Resources, Conservation and Recycling 34(3): 161-173



The objective of this research has been to prove that the waste sludge from the waste water treatment plant of a gelatin-grenatine manufacturing plant in Mexico, represents an adequate substratum for aerobic composting by the static pile method, and to evaluate the quality of the obtained product (compost). In addition, the aim of this work was to verify that composting is a suitable biotechnology, applicable to the exploitation of the mentioned sludge.
