Description : Solid waste management issues are a highly emotive topic. Disposal costs need to be balanced against environmental impact, which often results in heated public debate. Disposal options such as incineration and landfill, whilst unpopular with both the public and environmental pressure groups, do not pose the same environmental and health risks as, for example, recycling plants. This book, written by international experts, discusses the various waste disposal options that are available (landfill, incineration, composting, recycling) and then reviews their impact on the environment, and particularly on human health. Comprehensive and highly topical, Environmental and Health Impact of Solid Waste Management Activities will make a strong contribution to scientific knowledge in the area, and will be of value to scientists and policy-makers in particular.

Description : Economic development of any nation is possible only if the environmental protection laws are followed seriously. Wastes, if not treated effectively, may harm public health leading to the deterioration of ecosystem and ultimately to the growth and economy of the nation. The coverage of both solid waste as well as liquid waste management in a single volume makes this book unique. It discusses various economical methods to manage wastes providing a practical approach to the book. It gives the knowledge of important techniques for converting wastes into the products useful for the mankind and also informs readers about the Indian legal framework relating to the solid and liquid waste management. The technologies explained in the book are field-tested and have been practically implemented either in India or the United States. Hence, these techniques are highly viable for communities and industries to improve their waste management practices. Blending theory and practices of waste management, the authors provide extensive case studies from their on-job experiences to exemplify how solid and liquid wastes can be managed successfully. The chapter on 'municipal waste management' exclusively covers the technologies applied to convert construction and demolition wastes and organic wastes into useful products. With the increase in electronic wastes, a chapter on 'electronic waste management' has found place in the book. Besides, the text covers management of plastic wastes, biomedical wastes, radioactive wastes, hazardous wastes, and also operations and maintenance of the treatment facilities. The chapter on 'liquid waste management' is focused on municipal wastewater and common effluent treatment plant for industrial wastewater. The review questions at the end of each chapter help students to assess their knowledge and develop self-efficacy in the subject. Whereas, the appendices provide performance evaluation of solid waste management systems and sewage treatment plants, numerical problems for practice, and glossary of important terms.

Description : Industrial solid wastes, unlike liquid effluents and gaseous emissions, receive relatively less attention in terms of treatment, reuse, recycle, and recovery of useful by-products. These solid wastes have great potential for recovery and reuse. Predominantly organic wastes can be effectively treated by biological means to yield useful end products like methane gas as fuel and digested slurry as soil conditioner. Inert materials like plastics are effectively blended with other building materials, thereby improving the quality of the finished product and at least partially solving the problem of disposal of plastics. Inorganic wastes are excellent candidates for recovery of reusable building materials like sand and fine aggregate. Recycling of useful components from e-wastes goes a long way in reducing environmental pollution by toxic and hazardous wastes. This book places before the reader different ways and means used by scientists and engineers to minimize pollution of our natural resources and their overexploitation.

Description : Rapid population growth, high standards of living, and technological development are constantly increasing the diversity and quantity of solid waste. The production of solid municipal waste associated with the high proportion of organic waste and its improper disposal lead to considerable environmental pollution due to the emission of greenhouse gases such as methane, carbon dioxide, etc. In such a challenging environment, municipal authorities need to develop more effective solutions to manage the growing urban solid waste. Most of the municipal solid waste mainly constitutes degradable materials, which represent a significant role in greenhouse gas emissions in urban localities. Integrated solid waste management approaches must be developed and improved to manage the increasing organic fractions of municipal solid waste, which helps to reduce greenhouse emissions with potential economic benefits. A sustainable management of municipal solid waste systems constitutes a promising and attractive trend to study current consumption behaviors responsible for waste generation, and to protect the global ecosystem. This book presents the management of municipal of solid waste, including recycling and landfill technologies. Moreover, composition and types of waste will be investigated. As a result, the most appropriate and feasible scenarios for the management of municipal solid waste are presented to provide the respected readership with the scientific background for sustainable development in these processes, which are increasingly supported by innovative methodologies for holistic assessment of process sustainability.
