- ... This paper aims to characterize the evolution of water extractable organic matter (WEOM) during the composting of municipal solid waste (MSW), and investigate the correlation between maturity and WEOM characteristics. WEOM was extracted at different stages of MSW composting (0, 7, 14, 21, and 51d) and characterized by FTIR, UV–Vis, and fluorescence spectroscopy. The results obtained show that the ...
