The present thesis entitled “Utilization and Management of Floral Waste Generated in Popular Temples of Jaipur City” tries to investigate the conversion of flower waste into vermicompost and handmade paper as a sustainable method of waste management and recycling and its adherence to the principle of zero waste.

The experiments of the present investigative study were carried out by the research scholar in the Department of Environmental Science, The IIS University, Jaipur and some of the experiments were performed at Kumarappa National Handmade Paper Industry (KNHPI), Sanganer, Jaipur.

The idea for this study prompted from simple observations during regular temple visits. The methods of waste disposal in the temples were found to be uninspiring. Temple waste is either thrown in community waste or discarded around trees or in water bodies. This is not only aesthetically poor but also harmful for the environment. Witnessing such scenario led to the inception of an idea of putting this waste to a good use which would save the environment from the problems associated with improper waste disposal. The initial phase of the research involved survey of popular temples of the city and one to one interaction with the respective temple authorities. In the next phase the temple waste was collected and processed into vermicompost and handmade paper. The procedures used for vermicomposting and handmade paper making are explained in this study.

The thesis consists of six chapters. Chapter 1 includes introduction of the research problem, objectives of the study conducted and rationale of the study. Chapter 2 is a review of the literature related to the research problem and the past studies conducted in the fields of waste management, focussing mainly on vermicomposting and handmade paper making. Experimental designs, plans, procedure and technologies employed for obtaining appropriate results are described in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 deals with the results obtained from the experimental analysis described in Chapter 3. The results are exhibited in the forms of tables, graphs and figures. The results of the present study have been discussed and compared with concurrent results reported by other authors in Chapter 5. A brief and summarized description of all the previous chapters and important conclusions drawn from present observation are highlighted in Chapter 6. All the references which are followed in the text are alphabetized in the bibliography section. Last section presents the list of papers published.
