The private company Bioscome Nepal in cooperation with nonprofit foundation my climate conduct  survey  in Kim valley. Wastes is the major problems of Ktm, and organic waste amounts to almost 70%of total wastes. It collects waste from the vegetable market to produce compost through an anaerobic degradation. In 2011,March this plant starts the pilot project and in first six month, it collects about 140 ton of organic waste from local vegetable  market of Ktm and produce 15 tons of high quality compost. The demand of organic manure in our market is approx. 4,00,000 ton\year (70%of it is produced by demander themselves). This plant helps to reduce methane produced, mitigate waste problem of city, provide quality jobs to the local people, and helps to conduct organic farming. Now a days, many such plants and individual are engaged in organic wastes management to fulfill the increasing demand of organic manure and to make both soil and human health healthy.

Organic waste isn't unwanted but it can be made wanted. It can become a nutritive manure if managed properly. Addition of processed organic manure in the soil helps to maintain the health of soil and human health. Organic waste become the main unit of organic farming and helps to replace the use of expensive and timely unavailable chemical fertilizers in some extend. Use of organic waste also helps to maintain environment clean and beautiful. Many people of Nepal are interested to the management and utilization of organic wastes so Nepal Government should give management and structure support to this sector to make whole Nepal healthy.

    Hi Kushal,

    Thank you for informing us with a very interesting topic - organic waste, and I want to personally thank you because I am learning a lot regarding to this issue from your reports! As organic waste utilization actually benefits the agriculture, the government should encourage farmers to use organic waste in their farming unless the cost is not too high. Overall, great work!
