A popular way for recycling food waste is composting, a process to biologically stabilize and convert organic waste to useful material. However, composting of food waste in huge amount is always limited by the availability of land space. To overcome the drawbacks of composting process, an intensive aerobic bioconversion (IAB) technology was used to accelerate the stabilization and bioconversion of food waste into organic fertilizer in a reactor under controlled conditions of aeration, stirring and pH, at a temperature of 60oC.
