Food waste is noxious waste which contribute to environmental pollution by its odour which can give the ideal site for flues, damage the surrounding and also create some allergies when reserved for longer time. So reducing the environmental pollution caused by world′s population and their necessity, we can employ the food waste as different beneficial ways like bio-fertilizer. We can say that food waste as a perfect bio-fertilizer by knowing the elements present in it through elemental analysis. In the present study it was found that the food waste which cause environmental pollution contains SiO2, P2O5, SO3, Cl&
