Product MODULE 4. On-line course: Evaluation of the Alternatives in Waste Treatment and Recycling Technologies and Equipment.
Title MODULE 4. On-line course: Evaluation of the Alternatives in Waste Treatment and Recycling Technologies and Equipment.
The Module 4 on-line course on the Evaluation of the Alternatives in Waste Treatment and Recycling Technologies and Equipment contributed to the main aim of project WASTRE to improve the knowledge, skills and competencies of target groups members to enable them to implement and operate the most progressive technologies and equipment for waste treatment, disposal and recycling. These Technologies and equipment should be more environmentally friendly than the functionally equivalent technologies which dominate current practice.
It will also facilitate the ability of target group members to determine the best alternative technology and equipment for a given type of waste treatment and recycling.
The module 4 on-line course on the Evaluation of the Alternatives in Waste Treatment and Recycling Technologies and Equipment was oriented towards the optimization of waste treatment technologies and equipment. An increasing number of companies have focused on reducing the amount of waste or recovering value from used products in order to reduce costs and improve the efficiency of any given type of waste treatment and recycling, and to facilitate the reverse flow of used products from consumers to manufacturers. In order to develop the optimum approach to this process, it was necessary to select the best alternative waste treatment or recycling technology, as well as the most suitable processing equipment. This module was devoted to identifying the best available techniques without entailing excessive costs (BATNEEC). This meant adhering to the principles of Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) which state that a process should be designed and operated in such a way that any substances released have the minimum impact on the three environmental media, air, water, and land.
The module also contains on-line presentations concerning BATNEEC, the environmental costs of products, waste management improvements, reuse and recycling, materials conservation and waste minimization. Module 4 consists of 5 blocks of study materials: BATNEEC, Presentation, Multimedia, (18 slides); ENVIRONMENTAL COSTS OF PRODUCTS, Presentation, Multimedia (38 slides); WASTE MANAGEMENT-IMPROVEMENTS, Presentation, Multimedia (23 slides); REUSE AND RECYCLING, Presentation, Multimedia(10 slides); and MATERIAL CONSERVATION AND WASTE MINIMISATION, Presentation, Multimedia (43 slides)
Target group Professionals in various branches of industry, agriculture and public authorities,SME managers,VET students and the unemployed, with the aim of improving their employment opportunities in the labour market.
