Solid and Hazardous Waste Management
Course Description
Introduction: Industries, commercial facilities and institutions are responsible not only for the products that they produce and sell, but also for the waste materials that they generate. In the past, disposal facilities were cheap and plentiful and businesses had little incentive to reduce waste products they created. Today, a solid waste management plant is required not only for regulatory and environmental reasons, but also for economic viability.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

In view of shrinking budgets and the growing concerns of the general public, it is vitally important to economically maintain satisfactory environmental standards for the disposal of wastes. All existing and emerging options for safe waste handling, disposal and diversion must be explored. This requires a thorough understanding of the available and emerging choices, and development of an integrated solution for managing such wastes.

After participating in this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Review the regulations relating to solid and hazardous waste management
  • Familiarize yourself with waste audit
Training Objective

By the end of this course delegates will be able to:

assist participants in making informed decisions about technological choices in solid and hazardous waste management and to explore alternative funding options, particularly the public private partnership.
