Abstract Biological waste generated by households, including the organic fraction of municipal solid waste and garden green waste, is collected by municipal services and processed. These operations require additional energy carriers, such as fuel for waste transport. This study proposes a method for on-site composing of household waste in line with the zero waste strategy. The largest amount of heat is generated in the thermophilic phase of the composting process, and in the proposed method… Expand
