The article looks at the developments on council efforts on collecting food waste all over British households. The British Department for Communities and Local Government started 90 projects based on its 250-million-pound budget to back weekly bin gatherings. The projects include the "My Street" recycling scheme, in-vessel composting of food waste by the Lewes District Council, and anaerobic digestion gas refuelling database by the London Borough of Greenwich with Anaerobic Digestion.

    A vermifiltration ecological treatment system (VETS) was developed to treat bio-digested food waste and create nitrate-rich fertilizer. Conventional processes to treat digester effluent are typically not designed for value-added products from the treatment process. This research is the first...

    The steady-state performance of thermophilic (55 °C) and mesophilic (35 °C) anaerobic digestion as a function of solids retention time (SRT) was evaluated in laboratory digesters at SRTs ranging from 4 to 15 days, and in pilot-plant digesters at a 20-day SRT. All of the digesters were fed...

    Laboratory digestion studies using waste activated sludges (WAS) were conducted to compare the digestion performance between anaerobic and aerobic processes. Nine samples of WAS from seven wastewater treatment plants were collected and batch-digested under both anaerobic and aerobic conditions...
