This study deals with mechanism to harness energy from solid waste generated from chemical process industries. As an illustration, the press mud from sugar industry was utilized to recover energy through native microbial degradation process. Aerated and forced aerated press mud was investigated and the heat evolved was studied systematically and conclusions arrived thereof. Further, the process also resulted in the production of manure, rich in humus content.
