Abstract:

Waste materials developed by industrialization, agriculture and domestic activities is a serious problem nowadays and the modern technologies used for its management has ill effects on the environment and health. Vermicomposting is an ecofriendly, pollution free and cost effective methodology which may solve the problem of processing and management of the waste to a larger extent. Earthworms are the key invertebrate present in the soil helpful in decomposition of organic matter and waste, producing bio-fertilizer. The microflora in the intestine of the worm and gut enzymes along with the microflora present in the waste are involved in the degradation of different types of organic biomass into value added materials. This paper talks about how vermiculture is constructive solution to manage solid waste.
