With wet biowaste rapidly increasing due to urbanization, industrialization, and a growing population, finding an effective means of repurposing biowaste becomes increasingly crucial. The World Bank has projected a 70% global increase in urban waste and an 83% increase in the treatment cost by 2025, based on the current waste treatment technology such as incineration and landfilling. Consequently, a paradigm-shift to consider biowaste as a resource rather than a waste is key for a sustainable future.
