HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT BY RAFI

  1. 1. HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT BY MD.RAFI MTECH- SVU
  2. 2. HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT DEFINITION: Any residues or combination of residues otherthan radioactive waste which by reason of its chemical reactivity or toxic, explosive, corrosive or other characteristics causes potential hazard to human or environment, either alone or when in contact with other wastes and which therefore cannot be handled, store, transported, treated or disposed off without special precautions.
  3. 3. SOURCES: • Inorganic &organic chemicals • Petroleum refineries • Iron & steel • Non ferrous metals • Leather tanning • Metal finishing.
  4. 4. HAZARDOUS WASTE CLASSIFICATION: 1.IGNITABILITY -IGNITABLE WASTES 2.CORROSIVITY -CORROSIVE WASTE 3.REACTIVITY -REACTIVE WASTE 4.TOXICITY -TOXIC WASTE
  5. 5. RULES & REGULATIONS OF HW: Aim at providing control Specify the responsibilities Regulations governing generators of HW 1.preparation for transport 2.manifest requirements 3.record keeping & reporting Regulations governing transporters of HW 1.notification prior to transport 2.manifest requirements
  6. 6. TRANSPORTATION & STORAGE OF HW:  The CRADLE TO GRAVE concept HW generated at source requires movement by trucks to further. Requires serious care & attention while moving HW to be properly packed & labelled for transport to ensure safe handling Storage facilities are used to store waste temporarily before treatment & disposal.
  7. 7. HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY: OBJECTIVES: 1. Waste minimization 2. Detoxification & neutralization of waste by treatments 3. Destruction of combustible waste by incineration 4. Solidification of sludge & ash from steps from 2 &3 5. Disposal of residues in landfills.
  8. 8. 1.Waste minimization:  helps in resource conservation, economic efficiency & environmental protection. The strategies include— source reduction, recycling and waste exchange
  9. 9. 2. TREATMENT METHODS: Physical Chemical and biological treament
  10. 10. Physical treatment : • Involves variety of seperation techniques • Whenever a waste containing liquid & solid must be treated. • Physical processes are • Screening, sedimentation, centrifugation, flotation, adsorption, stripping and RO.
  11. 11. Chemical treatment: To make the complete breakdown of HW into non toxic form and To reduce the hazard of a particular waste Chemical methods are :: Neutralization, precipitation, oxidation and reduction.
  12. 12. • Neutralization: carried out when the waste contains excessive amount of acid or alkali. • Chemical oxidation:used to destroy toxic cyanide molecule with oxidising agents • Reduction: used in the conversion of hexa valent chromium into trivalent chromium before it can be precipitated. • Anodic electrolysis: used for the destruction of cyanide in spent stripping & plating solutions.
  13. 13. Biological treatment:  Differnet types of microorganisms are used for degradation of specific compounds of HW  Some microbes found in soil & sewage sludge have been tested in the degradation of organic chemicals  Tests have been conducted to degrade PCBs using pseudomonas & flavo bacterium.  Psuedomonas bacteria – benzene, phenol ,cresol.
  14. 14. 3. INCINERATION:  able to achieve 99.99% destruction & removal efficiency of hazardous components in waste. Primary products are CO2, vapour & ash Sulphur bearing wastes gives off SO2, CO2, H2O when incinerated. By products of incomplete combustion are sometimes more harmful. Two types of incinerators: liquid injection system, rotary kilns.
  15. 15. 4.Solidification or Stabilization: Convert the waste into an insoluble,rock hard material. Additive materials used to reduce the mobility of pollutants in the waste. Certain materials like nickel cannot be destroyed or detoxified by above methods. The residues that are left out are solidified to reduce the leachability.
  16. 16. 5.DISPOSAL METHODS: The options for disposal include land disposal, underground disposal & deep well injection. The choice of disposal method should be based on evaluation of economics & potential pollution risks. To prevent environmental pollution from landfills , it is essential that site c/s are taken into account.
