Compostable and Biodegradable waste (bio waste) around us

Solutions for recovering bio waste exist. Mechanical biological treatment (MBT), which is a machine-assisted process, isolates the fermentable portion of waste from the rest of household rubbish. The resulting material is then recovered by composting or methanisation. Composting transforms organic waste into humus, a fertilising material for soil and gardens. Waste gradually decomposes under the combined action of water, microorganisms (fungi, bacteria, etc.) and oxygen. Methanisation, on the other hand, refers to a natural fermentation process in a closed environment designed to produce biogas.
