Chapter 11: Techno-economic Analysis for Low Cost In-vessel Food Waste Composting at Universiti Malaysia Sabah
Published:10 Nov 2023
Composting is an effective way to manage waste in universities as it reduces waste from landfilling and reduces the dependency on chemical fertilisers. Composting facilities differ in cost depending on their size and operation method. The economic data collected for this study included the initial investment, the cost needed every year, and the total cash inflow per year. Based on our previous findings, the feasibility of a composting system at Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) in terms of economic analysis was analysed. The result suggested that the applicability of the composting system in UMS is economically feasible and could possibly generate a profit of RM 18 360 per year.
