A study of composting municipal solid waste (MSW) in India compared a specific facility in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, India to existing standards and practices documented in literature globally and in other facilities in India. The scope of this study included an analysis of issues in various facilities around the world in light of relevant government regulations, perceptions, and social values. From these results, short term low cost improvements were proposed to increase efficiency and sustainability of the facility in Muzaffarnagar. Long term improvements were proposed to address inefficiencies within the Indian industrial municipal solid waste composting system as a whole.
