In order to get valuable drugs from the opium, the process starts with its filtration of aqueous solution. Opium marc is the solid waste left after filtration of opium broth through filter aid and falls under the category of Hazardous Waste. In comparison with other disposal techniques like incineration and landfill, co-processing is more preferred option in the waste management system as it does not leave residues that pose detrimental effects on the environment. Thus, for effective waste management, co-processing is a best solution for ecological sustainability. Co-processingof hazardous waste opium marc can be effective, environmental friendly, energy recovering and safe technology for its management.
