Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSW)
Management of MSW is one of the major problems facing urban cities. Old methods of land and incineration are being abandoned due to their negative impact on the environment. Landfill contributes to the condemnation of land, production of leacheates, emmissions, carbon dioxide and pollutant gas.
IBC, Inc. provides a total solution for MSW and sponsors projects that manage the MSW in their components. Organic components are treated biologically via anaerobic bio-conversion. Other non-organic components such as plastic, paper, glass and metals are recycled to be made useful in the civil community. The aim of IBC is to reach a point of ‘almost zero landfill’! This requires tremendous efforts and community outreach to happen.
In addition to the biodegradation of the organic matter coming from MSW, IBC encourages the biodegradation of sludge originating from wastewater treatment. This solves the problem of many cities that produce sludge that is not allowed to used without undertaking an expensive 5-year treatment.
