Hee Jung Kim, Ji Ye Yoo, and Chan Jin Park

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 digestion).
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.
