COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

The aim of the course is to introduce students on planning, projecting, use and closing procedures of the landfills. Should know elements of the landfill, producing of the leachate and gases as well as their impact on the environment related to Croatian legislative.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

 

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

It is expected that the learning outcomes provide knowledge about:
- Importance of regular landfill organization
- Building new centre for waste management
- Establishment of the recycling yards
- Introducing into bioreactor landfills
- Planning and guidelines for projecting of new landfills.

Course content broken down in detail by weekly class schedule (syllabus)

1st week: Introductory lecture. Solid waste classification, illegal landfills, Croatian regulations regarding unregularly disposed waste.
2nd week: Evaluation of the situation on improper disposal areas, compressively stolid waste.
3rd week: Sampling of the solid, liquid and gaseous samples on the landfill for characterisation of the waste. Comparison with legal disposal, examples of good practice.
4th week: Analysis of produced gasses for evaluation of landfill age, phases of the degradation.
5th week: Leachate composition, evaluation of the age depending of leachate characteristics. Methods and apparatus for leachate treatment. Stripping, physic-chemical treatment.
6th week: Description of the recommended treatment technologies, in situ and ex situ procedure.
7th week: Projecting of the new landfill, basement construction elements.
8th week: leachate drainage systems, methods for collecting and use of gaseous.
9th week: Underground natural waters protection, inhibition of infiltration.
10th week: infrastructure of the landfill, recycling yard organization and management.
11th week: Mechanical and biological treatment (MBT) combined with bioreactor landfill.
12th week: Storm water infiltration in disposed waste. Evaluation models, climatic impacts.
13th week: Covering of the disposed waste to prevent loosing of the material.
14th week: Closing and monitoring procedures of the landfill.
15th week: Cost-benefit analysis according to Croatian laws.
