Keywords: Food waste compost denitrification nitrous oxide
Separate collection facility of food waste than yard waste, recyclable waste and garbage in separate streams can create reuse facility of food waste for other potential alternative products such as ethanol production. Optimum C/N ratio, optimum moisture content (40% - 60%) and oxygen flow during composting can control denitrification stage N2O emission. A city can make a long term plan for alternative reuse options of her food waste management. N2O capture is important to protect GHG emission.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
