2. LEARNING OUTCOMES
The course refers to qualitative and quantitative analysis of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), main management methods and design of processes for MSW treatment.
The student will emphasize and learn about integrated waste management systems in accordance with their characteristics.
Initially, the MSW is classified based on its characteristics and properties. It is presented the main management methods like collection, transportation, recycling, treatment, and final disposal. The methods are compared (composting, thermal treatment, landfilling), and advantages and disadvantages are presented along with decision making criteria. Mass and energy balances are presented for specific topics like waste-to-energy methods.
Specific systems are analyzed for waste collection: temporary storage, design parameters (bins, storage capacity of collection trucks), collection and transportation system (design of collection routes, evaluation of trucks, capacity, annualcollection and transportation cost, designing examples), transfer station of MSW (operation system, designing system and decision criteria, urban planning, yearly cost, financial assessment of transfer station). Estimation of landfill capacity or integrated waste management facilities for specific cases. Landfill design criteria, and potential construction sites. Biological and chemical degradation of waste. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of degradation products (leachate, biogas).
The student will learn:
