Organic Waste

Organic Waste

Any material that could be biologically degraded is called organic wastes. It could come from various sources from domestic to agriculture. Organic waste is also called green waste as its effective management and treatment helps the environment reducing carbon emissions. Organic waste consists of a huge range of wastes from food, garden, farm, industry, animals, and agriculture.

 

In technical terms, organic waste is the biodegradable material which can break down into carbon dioxide, methane, simple organic molecules, and water. The biodegradation of organic waste is a natural process which could be harmful for the environment if control measures are not applied. Carbon dioxide, once released into the atmosphere, stays there for seven years before it is recycled. On the other hand, methane stays in the atmosphere for 21 years. This extended period causes global warming and resulting in an increase in the atmospheric temperature casing melting of glaciers and other related impacts on earth.

 

In Australian perspective, around 14.3 million tons of organic waste was generated in 2018-2019 with less than half (6.87 million tons) being disposed-off in landfills. Moreover, 28 million tons of organic waste was generated from agriculture and fisheries in 2018-2019 which included sugarcane waste (bagasse and mil mud), fisheries, animal manure, and cotton gin industries.
