SOLID AND HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT

 L T P C

3003

COURSE OBJECTIVE:
• To impart knowledge and skills relevant to minimization, storage, collection, transport, recycling, processing and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes including the related regulations, engineering principles, design criteria, methods and equipment.

UNIT I

WASTE CLASSIFICATION AND REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

9

Sources and types of solid and hazardous wastes - need for solid and hazardous waste management – salient features of latest Indian legislations on management and handling of solid wastes, hazardous wastes, biomedical wastes, electronic wastes, construction and demolition wastes, plastics and discarded lead acid batteries – elements of integrated waste management and roles of stakeholders - seven elements and seven step approach to integrated solid waste management planning.

UNIT II

WASTE CHARACTERIZATION SOURCE REDUCTION AND RECYCLING

9

Waste sampling and characterization plan - waste generation rates and variation – physical composition, chemical and biological properties – hazardous characteristics – ignitability, corrosivity and TCLP tests –source reduction, segregation and onsite storage of wastes – waste exchange - extended producer responsibility - recycling of plastics, C&D wastes and E wastes.

UNIT III

WASTE COLLECTION TRANSPORT AND MATERIAL RECOVERY

9

Door to door collection of segregated solid wastes - analysis of hauled container and stationery container collection systems - compatibility, storage, labeling and handling of hazardous wastes – principles and design of transfer and transport facilities - hazardous waste transport and manifests - mechanical processing and material separation technologies – Size reduction – size separation - density separation - magenetic separation – compaction – principles and design of material recovery facilities – physico chemical treatment of hazardous wastes - solidification and stabilization – case studies on waste collection and material recovery.

UNIT IV

BIOLOGICAL AND THERMAL PROCESSING OF WASTES

9

Biological and thermos-chemical conversion technologies – composting – biomethanation – incineration – pyrolysis- plasma arc gasification –principles and design of biological and thermal treatment facilities - MSW processes to energy with high-value products and specialty By-products - operation of facilities and environmental controls - treatment of biomedical wastes – case studies and emerging waste processing technologies.

UNIT V

WASTE DISPOSAL

9

Sanitary and secure landfills - components and configuration– site selection - liner and cover systems - geo synthetic clay liners and geo membranes - design of sanitary landfills and secure landfills- leachate collection, treatment and landfill gas management – landfill construction and operational controls - landfill closure and environmental monitoring – landfill bioreactors – rehabilitation of open dumps and biomining of dumpsites-remediation of contaminated sites- Case studies.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

COURSE OUTCOMES: On completion of the course, the student is expected to be able to
CO1 Explain the various functional elements of solid and hazardous waste management including the associated legal, health, safety, and cultural issues as well as responsibilities of different stakeholders
CO2 Apply the knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals to characterize different types of solid and hazardous wastes, assess the factors affecting variation and assess performance of waste treatment and disposal systems
CO3 Design of systems and processes to meet specified needs of waste minimization, storage, collection, transport, recycling, processing and disposal.
CO4 Select appropriate methods for processing and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes, taking into account the impact of the solutions in a sustainability context
CO5 Conduct research pertinent to solid and hazardous waste management and communicate effectively to different stakeholders as well as engage in independent lifelong learning.
