EVALUATION OF EFFECTIVE MICROORGANISMS TECHNOLOGY IN INDUSTRIAL WOOD WASTE MANAGEMENT

The huge quantity of waste generated from industries pose a major problem of proper and adequate treatment. Many methods have been discovered for proper waste management so as to convert waste into reusable by-products. This research highlights the use of one of the simple and easy methods-Effective Microorganism (EM) Technology. Here, microorganisms from natural sources are used to convert different types of wood residues from a large wood industrial complex into a reusab...

BIOCONVERSION OF INDUSTRIAL WOOD WASTES INTO VERMICOMPOST BY UTILIZING AFRICAN NIGHT CRAWLERS (EUDRILUS EUGENIAE)

Large amounts of lignocellulosic waste are generated through forestry and agricultural practices, paper-pulp industries, timber industries, and many agro industries. They pose an environmental pollution problem. One of the most economically viable processes for the conversion of lignocellulosic wastes into useful products is the use of earthworms. This process by which earthworms are used to convert organic materials is known as vermicomposting. In the present study, vermibeds ...

A Feasibility Study on Composite Bricks from Sawdust and Boiler Ash Using Cement as A Binder

The present study was carried out with an objective to analyse the feasibility of composite production using sawdust, boiler ash and cement as raw materials. The study investigated various combinations of sawdust, boiler ash and cement as the raw materials for composite brick production. A total of 24 bricks were made on volume ratio basis of sawdust to cement (1:3 and 1:2), boiler ash to cement (1:3 and 1:2) and sawdust, boiler ash to cement(1:1:1 and 1:1:2...

PRESENT STATUS AND CHALLENGES OF WOOD SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION IN INDIA

 This article summarizes the present status and challenges of academic programmes in the field of Wood Science and Technology (WST) in Indian universities and other institutions, with special emphasis to post graduate education. Though the WST education has been running since several decades in India, there is very slow improvement in terms of the number of institutions offering this programme, when compared to many other professional courses. Now there are only 8 institutions in the cou...
