Course specification

Course is active from 01.10.2007..

Enabling students to view the entire waste management cycle and to solve problems related to the entire system, as well to individual parts of the system. The course objective is to introduce students to all parts of the waste management system (from formation, through collection, transport, recycling, to the final waste disposal) where special accent is placed on finding the adequate solution in real situations.
Students gain knowledge necessary for understanding the character of municipal waste management. Students should be able to give answers on the design requirements or to offer consulting services in the field of solid waste management by using the acquired knowledge from this course. The knowledge from this course represents the necessary foundation in certain courses during the studies.
Theoretical lectures: The concept of waste, Composition of municipal waste, Properties of municipal waste, National legislation on municipal waste, EU and world regulations on municipal waste, Waste management, Main characteristics of waste management, Waste management plan, Waste disposal, Utilization of landfill gas, Waste collection and separation plants, Separation and recycling of electronic waste, Combustion of municipal waste, Mechanical biological treatment MBT, Composting the municipal waste, Special flows of waste in settlements (medical, batteries, Transport and transport vehicles, Separation methods of secondary raw materials on spot and after transportation, Closure of landfills, Sanitary landfill management, Equipment for sanitary disposal. Financial implications of the waste management methods. Practical lectures: During Practice examples from every field of waste management are presented and students are trained to work on software for modeling landfill processes. Practical lectures: During Practice the knowledge from the lectures is elaborated in detail using examples from the practice. Students are trained to work on software used in the field of waste management.
Lectures, Auditory Practice, Computer practice and Consultations. During lectures theoretical part of the course is presented followed by examples from practice for better understanding of the lectured material. During auditory practice the knowledge from lectures is elaborated in more detail with active participation of students. During computer practice, students learn to use software tools for landfill process simulation. Besides lectures and practice, consultations are held on a regular basis. Written part of the examination can be taken through two colloquiums: Colloquium 1: Legislation, Generating, morphological composition and physical properties of municipal waste, Systems of waste collection and transportation, Methods of separation of secondary raw materials. Colloquium 2: Disposal of municipal waste, Closure of landfills, Sanitary landfill management. Methods of municipal waste treatment, Financial implication of the waste management methods. Completed computer practice is examination prerequisite.
