About this Unit
Sustainable waste management is an important consideration for any student who is training to become an engineer, as waste is produced in all engineering fields. In this unit students will identify and characterise sources of solid and hazardous waste generated in the community. The application of circular economy and zero waste principles are examined alongside real-world case studies to focus on sustainable management of waste incorporating minimisation, recycle, recovery and disposable options.
