ERT 319/3 INDUSTRIAL WASTE TREATMENT
This course covers waste treatment methods that are commonly used in industries. It’s introduced to the terms that are related to waste and how to calculate the properties such as biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total carbon (TOC). From these calculations and other given information, basic unit operations involved in the treatment of waste can be design. This course also give an understanding on the processes involved in waste treatment for different industries keeping in view of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and legal framework.
Ability to calculate the physical, chemical, and biological properties of waste material.
Ability to calculate and compare the treatment methods for particular waste.
Ability to design and evaluate various unit operations for waste treatments.
Ability to propose the landfill, incineration waste treatments and waste management systems.
