This course aims to provide students with up-to-date knowledge on topics relating to waste management and processing. It details the current methods of managing solid waste and discusses technologies include waste collection, transfer, recycling, waste-to-energy, bio-energy, incineration, hazardous waste management and landfill disposal. Specific waste valorisation techniques for various industrial waste streams, and a comparison of existing chemical/thermal techniques with bio-based, green chemistry processes and/or novel-assisted techniques will be provided. Students will learn to design an integrated waste management system for source reduction and disposal by combining the available options. Sustainable development and life-cycle assessment will be discussed in relationship to waste management.
