AbstractIntroduction into the problems of waste handling with the goal to get the ability of seeing and improving the influence of commodities and products with there packaging to the environment - as they are becoming waste. Knowing the different mechanical and chemical processes, which are applicable in the field of waste management.
Objective*To reconstruct the historical development of the waste problems (C2)
*To know the problems of a modern waste management (C4)
*To see and to improve the influence of commodities and products to the environment (C5)
*To recognize waste and his components as raw material and resources and to get the know how for a correct handling (C6)
*To know the different mechanical and chemical processes, which are applicable in the field of waste management (C6)
ContentThis lecture gives a comprehensive overview of the different waste-types and waste handling possibilities:
*Waste composition as a mirror of the human evolution
*Waste definition (formation, amount, energy content, waste composition)
*Several recycling possibilities and processes
*Thermal waste treatment (electricity/district heat as products), including off-gas cleaning and incineration residue handling with regards to the final residue storage in a landfill and the problems which have to be solved there
*Special fields like biological waste handling (composting, fermentation), handling of special wastes and municipal sewage sludge treatment
*Economical aspects
