2. LEARNING OUTCOMES
The course is teaching integrated systems for Solid Waste Management (SWM). Waste is not a waste. Waste is a misplaced resource and can be converted into reusable materials, energy, and other products with high value.
The student will learn the types of MSW: food wastes, paper/cardboard, plastics, textiles, leather, yard waste, wood waste, metals, special waste, and household hazardous waste, etc. The student will gain knowledge on waste characterization data. The data are needed to address issues related to national policy setting, regional planning of waste management, legal aspects, administration, cost accounting, design and operation of facilities, environmental assessment. The student would conduct waste characterization study to identify the sources, characteristics and quantities of the waste generated, gather existing information, develop sampling method, conduct field studies, conduct market surveys for special wastes, and assess factors affecting waste generation rates.
The student would learn about the circular economy concept and the effect of waste prevention and recycling. The materials commonly recovered from MSW are:
The student will investigate unit operations for waste separation and processing:
The student will learn the definition of thermal processes:
The targets of incineration are: reduction of waste by volume, inertisation of hazardous waste residues, destruction of contaminants, recovery of waste energy, transforming residues into usable secondary products.
Biological conversion of MSW:
The objectives of composting:
The Anaerobic Digestion stages:
The student would learn the definition of landfill terms:
