ENV 109 - Hazardous Waste


Credits: 3 Credits

This course will cover both solid, liquid, and hazardous waste. Technology, health, and policy issues associated with solid waste and hazardous materials are examined. Methods of managing solid and hazardous waste are introduced, and regulations are presented where appropriate. The characteristics of hazardous and solid waste materials, health frameworks, and the distribution of contaminants in the environment are reviewed. The course is extremely broad in scope spanning laws, regulations, treatment technologies, and risk assessment. While treatment technologies are presented and basic process design information is covered, the course is designed for breadth, not depth, in process design and hazardous waste management. The objective of the course is to provide a comprehensive and historical overview of hazardous waste management, drawing from both scientific and engineering principles, and prepare our students to be well-qualified and competitive in the responsibility of engineering design and permitting in the field of hazardous waste management

Theory: 3 Credit Hours
