Among the diverse methods of solid waste management, bioprocess is the most reasonable one pertaining to its cost, potential, and generation of non-toxic products. The present era of population explosion demands fast and safe ways to manage the waste, and bioprocess is the best solution for that. A multitude of microbes can be used in bioprocessing, and a lot of research has to be done to fully explore their degradation potential. Moreover, bioprocesses can be combined with other waste treatment technologies to enhance the efficacy of waste management. Process network technologies can help in proper landfill management. A consolidative view of established as well as amateur techniques of bioprocessing being used for solid waste management will give an overall picture of the current status and will serve for finer waste administration.
