Inclusion of innovative technology in integrated waste management of a city : case of Bogura, Bangladesh

Bogura is the largest municipality in Bangladesh by population. Its huge population and agri-industry produces a great deal of solid, faecal and industrial waste which has been a matter of concern for the municipality. IRC, with Antonie de Wilde as advisor, started working for a solution and completed a pre-feasibility and feasibility study to find innovative technologies and an operation model. The feasibility study, led by Antonie de Wilde, has produced an integrated solution of faecal sludge, municipal solid waste, agri-waste and aerosol can recycling model which also helps to reduce surface and ground water contamination. The solution integrates conventional anaerobic digestion with new torrefaction and aerosol-propellant capture technologies which treats the municipal solid waste and aerosol cans to produce biofuel and liquid petroleum gas, respectively.

Abstract

Bogura is the largest municipality in Bangladesh by population. Its huge population and agri-industry produces a great deal of solid, faecal and industrial waste which has been a matter of concern for the municipality. IRC, with Antonie de Wilde as advisor, started working for a solution and completed a pre-feasibility and feasibility study to find innovative technologies and an operation model. The feasibility study, led by Antonie de Wilde, has produced an integrated solution of faecal sludge, municipal solid waste, agri-waste and aerosol can recycling model which also helps to reduce surface and ground water contamination. The solution integrates conventional anaerobic digestion with new torrefaction and aerosol-propellant capture technologies which treats the municipal solid waste and aerosol cans to produce biofuel and liquid petroleum gas, respectively.
