Several experiments have been carried out to elucidate the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as effect of replacement of chemical fertilizer by biofertilizers on alluvial soils in Indonesia.  Biofertilizers “Biotara” and “Biosure” were applied along with NPK fertilizer on alluvial soil cultivated with rice.  Emissions of nitrous oxide (N 2 O), methane (CH 4 ) and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) were monitored in biweekly basis up to the maximum vegetative growth of the rice plant.

The present results suggest that home composting provides an effective and feasible supplementary waste management method to a centralized facility in particular for cities with lower population density such as the Australian cities.
The information and analysis contained within this summary document is developed to inform policy makers and a number of assumptions, simplifications and transformations have been made in order to present information that is easily understood by policy makers, and to enable comparisons with other countries.
