Minimizing Organic Waste and Methane Generation at Source through Hydro Dual Digestion Tank (HDDT)
This paper is intended to minimize waste contribution and reduce methane generation at source of generation.
Hydro-Dual Digestion Tank (HDDT) is made to performs both hydrolysis and aerobic decomposition of waste in the tank
and controlled methane generation of the settled sludge through regulation of valves, temperature and retention time. The
100% wastes are reduced at source and the methane generation of the waste in the process is minimized. The organic carbon
contents of settled wastes or sludges are further reduced into useful manure through vermicomposting. The cost of
collection, transportation, treatment and disposal of the organic solid waste is reduced and GHG contribution to atmosphere
is also minimized.
