Organic waste is mainly created from households, hotels and industries. Utilization of organic waste and producing renewable energy helps to potentially reduce the environmental pollution. In order to address some of the above mentioned critical issues, SCWRM intends to undertake research projects in the area of segregation of mixed municipal solid waste; development of MSW management system at society level and mapping of MSW collection vehicles. Our current area of research focus is the development of e-waste management models.
