Environmental range

An inevitable by-product of modern urban living is the generation of large volumes of solid waste. A substantial portion of this waste is non-toxic and organic in nature but standard methods for its treatment and disposal are often cost prohibitive. Similarly, even in rural areas, the agricultural industry faces a challenge to develop strategies for sustainability that can conserve non-renewable natural resources such as soil and enhance the use of renewable resources such as organic wastes.
