Abstract

Decentralised treatment of food waste (FW) by in-vessel composting by small-to-medium sized enterprises supports the proximity principle of waste management and recycling, but the process is susceptible to instability from acidogenic reactions and low process temperatures due to the high degradability and moisture content (MC) of the feedstock.
