TEMPLE WASTE UTILIZATION, ITS MANAGEMENT AND FUTURE PERSPECTIVES TO ATTAIN SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT
UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, Volume 42, Issue 22,
Management of “solid waste” is the big issue plaguing the universe and creating havoc to the environment. The generation of waste is increasing as a result of anthropogenic activities causing huge environmental pollution and global warming. Solid waste like kitchen waste, household waste, plastic waste, temple waste. possesses lots of pollutants like carbon. In the world, huge budget is spending to reduce and manage waste by opting landfill or incineration techniques. Temple waste coming out of temples is one of the main concerns, consisting of flowers, leaves, coconuts, grains, and fruits etc. majority of which are degradable. These ingredients are highly organic nature due to which temple waste also act as medium for the growth of microorganisms. The florets can be used in the preparation of many valuable and applicable products and in industries manufacturing perfumes, soaps, cosmetics, food etc. However, temple waste is usually thrown in running water or local water bodies causing water contamination and mortality of aquatic organisms. This review describes the hazards (environmental, human health, aquatic) caused by temple waste through various mechanisms illustrating contamination of water bodies and propagation of microbes, pests, rodents etc., as well as utilization of waste for conversion into useful products like manure, incense sticks, biochar, biofuel, pigments, papers and dyes. All these products have diverse applications in different industries thereby strengthening the concepts like “best out of waste” and “from the temple to the temple”. This review paves the aspect of environmental conservation, reduction in pollution and solve energy crisis.
