Environmental scientists and engineers are faced with the challenge of how to manage increasing amounts of solid waste. Furthermore, waste management officials are constantly faced with the question "Which option is the most appropriate one in this situation, and how does it compare to other options?" For these individuals, and for the general public, Municipal Solid Wastes: Problems and Solutions helps to answer this and other questions by presenting the issues of waste handling and disposal-from general management concepts to specific techniques. Each topic is carefully reviewed: problems are presented, and possible solutions are discussed. Legislation that affects recycling and disposal is covered.
Solid waste management issues, technologies and challenges are dynamic. More so, in developing and transitory nations in Asia. This book, written by Asian experts in solid waste management, explores the current situation in Asian countries including Pacific Islands. There are not many technical books of this kind, especially dedicated to this region of the world. The chapters form a comprehensive, coherent investigation in municipal solid waste (MSW) management, including, definitions used, generation, sustainable waste management system, legal framework and impacts on global warming. Several case studies from Asian nations are included to exemplify the real situation experienced. Discussions on MSW policy in these countries and their impacts on waste management and minimization (if any) are indeed an eye-opener. Undoubtedly, this book would be a pioneer in revealing the latest situation in the Asian region, which includes two of the world’s most dynamic nations in the economic growth. It is greatly envisaged to form an excellent source of reference in MSW management in Asia and Pacific Islands. This book will bridge the wide gap in available information between the developed and transitory/developing nations.
SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING addresses the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by our urban society. While the authors discuss issues such as regulations and legislation, their main emphasis is on solid waste engineering principles. They maintain their focus on principles by first explaining the basic principles of the field, then demonstrating how these principles are applied in real world settings through worked examples. By using this book as part of a graduate or advanced undergraduate course students will emerge being able to think reflectively and logically about the problems and solutions in solid waste engineering.

"Problem solving in solid waste engineering" is primarily designed as a supplement and a complementary guide to municipal solid waste engineering. Nonetheless, it can be used as an independent problem solving text in solid waste collection, treatment and disposal. The book targets university students and solid waste engineering candidates taking first degree courses in environmental, civil, mechanical, construction and chemical engineering or related fields. The manuscript is expected to be of beneficial use to postgraduate students and professional engineers. Likewise, it is hoped that the book will stimulate problem solving learning and facilitate self-teaching. By writing such a script it is hoped that the included worked examples and problems will ensure that the booklet is a valuable aid to student-centered learning. To achieve such objectives immense care was taken to present solutions to selected problems in a clear and distinct format using step-by-step procedure and explanation of the related solution utilizing necessary methods, approaches, equations, data, figures and calculations. The book is mainly used as a course supplement and support in problem solving issues. Constructive comments, valuable remarks, precious notes and helpful observations were received from students, users within the college, colleagues, engineers, officials at solid waste departments and municipalities, members of engineering societies and enterprises. In this second issue problem modeling techniques has been introduced. Visual Basic.NET, programmed using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 IDE was used in writing computer programs for selected examples in the book. Set programs are constructed using the IDE designing and buildings tools, and were tested and run on a MS-Windows XP and 7 workstations.
In a world where waste incinerators are not an option and landfills are at over capacity, cities are hard pressed to find a solution to the problem of what to do with their solid waste. Handbook of Solid Waste Management, 2/e offers a solution. This handbook offers an integrated approach to the planning, design, and management of economical and environmentally responsible solid waste disposal system. Let twenty industry and government experts provide you with the tools to design a solid waste management system capable of disposing of waste in a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible manner. Focusing on the six primary functions of an integrated system--source reduction, toxicity reduction, recycling and reuse, composting, waste- to-energy combustion, and landfilling--they explore each technology and examine its problems, costs, and legal and social ramifications.
Transformation and rapid population growth in Africa indicates that urbanisation is one of the key determinants of the future of social dynamics and development of the continent. Linked to these changes are increased production levels of Municipal Solid Waste. This book provides recommendations and solutions that derive from current situations, experiences and observations in Africa. The study is an essential tool for urban planners, environmental engineering students and lecturers, environmental consultants and policy-makers; it is also a resource for municipal authorities, as it outlines future directions of Municipal Solid Waste management. These need to be considered by the municipal authorities of most African countries.
Readers gain the knowledge to address the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by global urban societies with SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, 3E. While the authors prepare readers to deal with issues, such as regulations and legislation, the main emphasis throughout the book is on mastering solid waste engineering principles. The book first explains the basic principles of the field and then demonstrates through worked examples how readers can apply these principles in real world settings. Readers learn to think reflectively and logically about the problems and solutions in today's solid waste engineering.
