10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks and lunch)
*********************************************************************************

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

  • Understand and identify waste management options for energy recovery including key thermal processes.
  • Characterize waste incineration in terms of environmental emissions including greenhouse gases (GHGs).
  • Devise a basic systematic approach for GHG emissions and offsets from thermal processes in waste management.
  • Understand fundamentals of national and international frameworks on carbon emission of energy recovery through waste incineration.

Description:
This one-day course is designed as an introduction to thermal processes in waste management systems and their interaction with carbon emission and climate change. Various technical, environmental and regulatory aspects are introduced briefly.

Course Outline:

  • Overview of waste management processes
  • Thermal processes in waste management
  • Global evolution in waste management
  • Thermal processes and climate change
  • Incineration, pyrolysis and gasification
  • Energy recovery rates for waste streams
  • Environmental, social and economic aspects
  • Government and international carbon regulating organizations
  • Intergovernmental panel on climate change guidelines

Who Should Attend:
Intermediate and Upper Management in Governmental and Private Sector dealing with Waste Management, particularly Thermal Processes, including but not limited to Incineration • Technicians and Engineers in Environmental Engineering
