Orca­nic was­te mills

Most house­holds in Lon­gye­ar­by­en have recent­ly been equip­ped with orga­nic was­te mills. The pur­po­se is that food was­te is not sup­po­sed to incre­a­se the quick­ly gro­wing was­te dump in Advent­da­len, but is rather inten­ded to be shred­ded and released to the sea, tog­e­ther with the gene­ral was­te water. Lon­gye­ar­by­en does, so far, not yet have a was­te­wa­ter tre­at­ment plant. Akva­plan-Niva, a Nor­we­gi­an insti­tu­te for rese­arch on water, has recom­men­ded to have one estab­lis­hed.

The orga­nic was­te mills may theo­re­ti­cal­ly be a good con­tri­bu­ti­on to was­te reduc­tion in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, but the­re have been fre­quent tech­ni­cal pro­blems lea­ding to incre­a­sing loss of popu­la­ri­ty of the new instal­la­ti­ons.
