Abstract

Waste management is of the utmost importance for many countries and especially for the less developed communities due to different aspects that are involved. In particular, the proper treatment before disposal, of the Solid Urban Waste organic fraction is one of the main issues that is pursued in waste managing. Infact, this matter is particularly reactive and if disposed in sanitary landfills without previous adequate treatments a large amount of dangerous and pollutant gaseous, liquid and solid substances can be produced. Some waste treatments can represent also an opportunity to produce other by-products like energy, recycled materials and other goods with both economical and environmental benefits. In this paper, the aerobic treatment of the organic fraction of Solid Urban Waste, due by a biocell with the possibility of recovering heat for civil or industrial needs, has been examined. The biological process and the heat recovery system have been carefully analysed and discussed.
