Nirmalya Solid Waste, Earthworms, Vermicomposting, Artificial Aeration


In India, million tons of temple waste (nirmalya) is produced every day. The waste collected from temple mainly consists of flowers, leaves, fruits, honey, coconuts, camphor, milk etc. which is released in the water bodies or dumped at the available land spaces, thereby leading to severe environmental pollution and health hazards. Bioremediation of nirmalya can be carried out by vermicomposting. Vermicomposting of solid waste can be done by using different types of earthworms providing natural and artificial aeration along with mixture of cow dung and soil, artificial aeration is carried out by providing diffused aerators or perforated pipes. The parameters like C/N ratio, temperature, moisture contain are carried out. The main objective of this study is to minimize the problem of solid waste management by treating nirmalya solid waste by vermicomposting and suggesting that which method gives good quality of compost at short interval of time comparing artificial and natural aeration composting.
