Introduction to Waste Management (Solid Waste Management Systems Planning) University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

One of the greatest challenges modern societies face is finding ways to increase economic growth while minimizing resource consumption and environmental degradation. The highly inefficient use of natural resources, from their extraction to final disposal, is already damaging the planet because most of the extracted resources end up as waste. This class will introduce the main aspects concerning integrated waste management including current waste treatment technologies, strategies, policies and modeling of waste management systems.
