Home composting (also known as backyard composting) presents some potential benefits for the industrial treatment of the organic fraction of municipal solid waste or biowaste. Home composting avoids the collection of biowaste, reduces the impurities present in the waste being treated and, consequently, in the resulting compost, and theoretically decreases the material and energy needs of the process.

35 p, 370.1 KB Comparison of compostable bags and aerated bins with the traditional storage systems to collect the organic fraction of municipal solid waste at home : the case of Catalonia as example / Puyuelo Sánchez, Belén (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Colón Jordà, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Martín, Patricia (Associació de Municipis Catalans per a la Recollida Porta a Porta) ; Sánchez Ferrer, Antoni (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química)
The separation of biowaste at home is key to improving, facilitating and reducing the operational costs of the treatment of organic municipal waste. The conventional method of collecting such waste and separating it at home is usually done by using a sealed bin with a plastic bag. [...]

21 p, 1.4 MB Impact of biostimulation and bioaugmentation as bioremediation systems on diesel contaminated soils / Abraham, Juliana (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Gea Leiva, Teresa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Vicent i Huguet, Teresa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química)
This paper analyzes and compares the effects of bioremediation on total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) degradation using composting techniques as well as biostimulation and bioaugmentation approaches. Compost and sludge were added as organic amendments with the dual purpose of providing both nutrients and microorganisms to the contaminated soil. [...]

Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Gea Leiva, Teresa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química)
Background: the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) during the composting process is mainly responsible for the odors generated in these types of waste treatment plants. In this work, VOC emissions from the source‐separated organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) composting process have been investigated in 50 L pilot reactors operating under different aeration control strategies during the active decomposition stage.
