Because of rapid urbanization, the production of kitchen waste continue to rise is increasing environmental risk which leads open dumping and landfilling. It causes harmful disease and environmental degradation. In India the total waste generated is 50 lakh metric tonne per day out of which total 50% waste is organic waste. Composting is low cost method for treating organic waste also provide nutrition to plants. Temperature, PH, MC content, C/N ratio these are the main parameter factor which contributes the composting efficiency. The research paper has a concern to minimize environmental impacts and maximize social and economic benefits.
