PA - C8 - CHI654 : Solid Waste Valorization

Descriptif

Solid Waste Valorization - Physical treatment

The aim of the Solid Waste Valorization course is to offer an overview of sources, classification, and composition of solid wastes and of circular economy concept to improve waste management strategies. It will also provide technical and scientific knowledge regarding waste management practices and technologies that can be used to valorize and eliminate solid waste such as recycling, thermal treatment, biological treatment and landfilling.  Visits of a full-scale sorting center, incinerator, anaerobic digester and landfill are planned.
