2016 ISCN Awards: Campus Planning and Management Systems

  1. 1. Green University Practice for Chulalongkorn University Assoc.Prof. Dr.Chavalit Ratanatamskul Chulalongkorn University Bangkok, Thailand Email:
  2. 2. Our Project Team • Project Head: Assoc.Prof. Dr. Chavalit Ratanatamskul Director of Research Unit on Waste Treatment Dept.of Environmental Engineering Project Advisor: 1. Assoc.Prof.Dr. Boonchai Stitmannaithum Vice President of Chulalongkorn University 2. Professor Kazuo Yamamoto The University of Tokyo, Japan Project researcher: - 3 Ph.D. students - 5 Master Degree students
  3. 3. Project Activities • Development and implementation of three prototype anaerobic digesters for co-digestion of food waste and garden waste  organic waste reduction program for three canteens inside the campus • Development and implementation of two prototype wastewater reuse systems  Water reuse program for two high-rise buildings inside the campus • Education program on 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) for campus waste management to staff and students  Staff participation program for sustainable waste management in the campus

  7. 7. The major organic solid waste in Chulalongkorn university Food waste from Canteens Rain tree (Chamchuri) leaf Biogas production from co-digestion of food waste and rain tree leaf using single-stage and two-stage anaerobic digesters
  8. 8. The prototype two-stage anaerobic digester for co-digestion of food waste and garden waste

  11. 11. Summary of Digester Performance 1) High biogas production could be achieved due to excellent digester performance for all three canteens. 2) In terms of total solid removal effieciency, it was found that both single-stage and two-stage digesters have high performance for solid reduction up to 80%. ( Solid waste reduction) 3) The digestate from anaerobic digester can be used as soil amendment. 4) High potential of renewable energy (biogas) from waste.

  17. 17. Summary of the performance of the developed wastewater reuse system • From the overall results, the IT/BF-MBR system could successfully operated even with a short total HRT of 4.4 hrs. The system could achieve high efficiencies above 99% for turbidity and SS removal. • Stable treatment effiencies of above 90% removal for COD, ammonia nitrogen and total phosphorus could be achieved in long-term operation of the IT/BF-MBR system. • Furthermore, water quality of the treated effluent could comply with the standard of reuse water quality for toilet flushing and garden watering purposes.
  18. 18. Education program on waste management for staff and students • Our program has educated staffs and students by training, exhibition, mass communication to have awareness and knowledge on waste separation at source using 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) concept. • Food waste is also managed by our staffs and students to promote organic waste recycling program with the university support (financial and policy support)
