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.

Solid waste disposal — especially after the Love Canal incident — has become the focus of public awareness and concern for pollution. This book provides a synthesis of existing knowledge on solid waste landfilling — with a focus on solving problems with landfill gas, managing leachate, and implementing environmentally secure operating procedures. It explores the fundamentals of solid waste decomposition, and considers how these influence landfill design, operational features, and improvements in overall site performance. Covers social, economic and technical factors associated with solid waste landfilling. Considers all environmental applications — especially water quality and the treatment of landfill generated gas. Presents methodologies for predicting landfill gas and leachate production. For engineers, hydrogeologists, and planners involved in the design and operations of landfills.

It is estimated that literally billions of residents in urban and peri-urban areas of Africa, Asia, and Latin America are served by onsite sanitation systems (e.g. various types of latrines and septic tanks). Until recently, the management of faecal sludge from these onsite systems has been grossly neglected, partially as a result of them being considered temporary solutions until sewer-based systems could be implemented. However, the perception of onsite or decentralized sanitation technologies for urban areas is gradually changing, and is increasingly being considered as long-term, sustainable options in urban areas, especially in low- and middle-income countries that lack sewer infrastructures. This is the first book dedicated to faecal sludge management. It compiles the current state of knowledge of the rapidly evolving field of faecal sludge management, and presents an integrated approach that includes technology, management, and planning based on Sandecs 20 years of experience in the field. Faecal Sludge Management: Systems Approach for Implementation and Operation addresses the organization of the entire faecal sludge management service chain, from the collection and transport of sludge, and the current state of knowledge of treatment options, to the final end use or disposal of treated sludge. The book also presents important factors to consider when evaluating and upscaling new treatment technology options. The book is designed for undergraduate and graduate students, and engineers and practitioners in the field who have some basic knowledge of environmental and/or wastewater engineering. Contents: The Global Situation; Faecal Sludge Quantification, Characterisation and Treatment Objectives; Treatment Mechanisms; Methods and Means for Collection and Transport of Faecal Sludge; Overview of Treatment Technologies; Settling-Thickening Tanks; Unplanted Drying Beds; Planted Drying Beds; Co-treatment of Faecal Sludge in Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants; Enduse of Treatment Products; Operation, Maintenance and Monitoring of Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant; Institutional Frameworks for Faecal Sludge Management; Financial Transfers and Responsibility in Faecal Sludge Management Chains; Assessment of the Initial Situation; Stakeholder Analysis; Stakeholder Engagement; Planning Integrated Faecal Sludge Management Systems; The Way Forward.

This text provides an understanding of the relationship between structure, processing, and properties of materials. By selecting the appropriate topics from this wealth of material, instructors can emphasize materials, provide a general overview, concentrate on mechanical behavior, or focus on physical properties. Since the book has more material than is needed for a one-semester course, students will also have a useful reference for subsequent courses in manufacturing, materials, design, or materials selection.
