substance or material.Rejected as worthless.

Eg) Rubbish, trash, garbage or junk

WASTE MANAGEME NT@ To extract maximum practical benefits. @ To generate minimum amount of waste. @ Reduce negative impacts - on environment & society.


*Domestic wastesmeat remnants

SOURCES OF WASTES- Eg) paper, plastic, glass, ceramics, vegetable wastes - Eg) printer paper,

*Commercial wastes *Ashes

- Eg) coal, wood and coke.

- Open burning of wastes also generates ashes

*Animal Wastes- rejected feed

- Eg)dung of animals

*Biomedical Wastes

*Construction Wastes

- Eg) expired drugs, plastic syringes, surgical dressings

*Industrial Solid Wastes *Sewer

- Eg) metal rods, bricks, cement, concrete, roofing materials - digging activities Eg) telephone, electricity, drainage -Eg) garment factory would dump textiles of various kinds - removed from sewerage left on the roadside

*Hazardous wastes *E-

- potentially

dangerous - react explosively with air or water - Change in the genetic structure of individuals Waste - electronics disposed

*Nuclear wastematerial fission

-E.g.) Secondary computers, electronics, mobile phones, television sets & refrigerator - containing radioactive - product of a nuclear

Effects of waste If not managedAffects our health Affects our socio-economic conditions Affects our coastal and marine

environment Affects our climate Rise in global temperatures Rise in sea levels

Methods of Waste Mgmt.Disposal Methodsc) Land fillsConvenient Inexpensive Destruction of food sources Desalination

Recycling methods a) Biological reprocessing b) Energy recovery i)Pyrolysis ii)GasificationKey to providing a livable environment for the future

IncinerationRequires minimum land Can be operated in any weather

Expensive to build and operate Continuous maintenance

Expensive Some wastes cannot be recycled Technological push needed

Practical IssuesLack of awareness Unplanned growth and development of cities Land availabilty Un sorted waste. mixture of bio-degradable

and non bio-degradable Some wastes cannot be recycled Unsightly - smell, waste, vermin requires proper planning, design, and operation

Bio-Methanation ProcessMaterials that are organic in nature, such as

plant material, food scraps convert starch or sugary agricultural feed stock into a methane rich gas mixture three stages, namely, hydrolysis, acid-genesis and methane formation Process is very slow Installing is expensive.

Suggestions Improve product design to use less materials. use biodegradable materials maintenance of cleanliness in yards and streets At Source Treatment, Separation of materials

should be done at source Encourage eople to reuse materials rather than purchase new ones.
