Solid Waste Management

Course Number: EST 204
Credits: 3
Hours per Quarter: 40

Lecture Hours:20    Lab Hours:20


Description
EST 204 builds on EST 201 Plant Operations by focusing on operations that collect, transport, sort, and dispose of waste materials. Such operations, including landfills, handle hazardous and non-hazardous residential, commercial, and industrial wastes. These operations function under strict federal and state air, soil, and water pollution control permitting and reporting requirements. Solid waste management operations sort recyclables through material recovery facilities (MRFs), separate organic materials (food waste and yard debris) for composting and/or anaerobic digestion, recover landfill gas and upgrade it to pipeline quality biomethane, and/or combust a portion of their non-organic wastes to produce combined heat and power (cogeneration).
