Morocco is one of the largest growers of sugarcane with an estimated produced of around 500.000 tons in the marketing year 2014 due to the increase in the area sown sugar beet who spent 35,000 ha during the campaign 2012-2013 53,000 ha for 2013-2015 campaign. Composting is an efficient method of waste disposal, enabling recycling of organic matter. Composting is one of the most promising technologies for solid waste treatment. The organic substrates in solid waste can be biodegraded and stabilized by composting and the final compost products could be applied to land as the fertilizer or soil conditioner. The present review paper deals with the following topics: Composting, Composting of pollutants and various industrial wastes, Physical and chemical nature of raw pressmud, Biochemical changes during composting, Microbial enzymes and composting, Factors controlling composting and Characteristics of the compost and its application in agriculture.
