Abstract—Increasingly organic wastes (environmental
residues) are increasingly being generated, and research on how
to recycle these wastes into resources is essential. The purpose
of this study is to investigate the recycling of organic wastes,
which have been attracting attention worldwide, and to
investigate the amount of organic wastes generated in Korea.
The subjects of the survey were waste water sludge, water
treatment sludge, animal and vegetable residue and livestock
excretions generated in the workplace and sewage treatment
sludge, food waste and excretions treatment sludge generated in
the living environment. The treatment methods include
incineration, landfill, Composting, and energy (anaerobic
This study also compared the results of analysis for countries operating organic wastes energy facilities in Japan or Europe with similar conditions.
Index Terms—Organic, waste, treatment.
