Composting of tannery effluent with cow manure and wheat straw



Composting of tannery effluent with cow manure and wheat straw



Bioresource Technology 94(2): 223-228



Wastewater from the leather industry in Leon (Guanajuato, Mexico) is discharged into the Turbio river without treatment. Tannery wastewater contains utilizable nutrients, but also toxic organic compounds which might affect soil processes and plant growth, and pathogens, which might pose a threat to the local farming community. Tannery effluent was composted with cow manure and wheat straw for 90 days to reduce pathogens and toxic organic compounds and monitored.
