This course has emphasized on Integrated Solid Waste Management aspects within the broad subject area of Integrated Waste Management for a Smart City. The issues of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management, Construction, and Demolition (C&D) Waste and Electronic Waste Management will be covered in this course. The topics will include generation rates and waste composition; Integrated waste management issues, collection, recovery, reuse, recycling, energy-from-waste, and landfilling; Biological treatment of the organic waste fraction - direct land application, composting, and anaerobic digestion. The environmental impact of waste management and its relationship to the big picture sustainable development and smart city development will be discussed. A major focus of this course will be the role of MSW management within the various initiatives of the Govt. of India including Swachh Bharat Mission, Smart Cities as well as Make in India. The challenges of waste management for smart cities will also be discussed taking case studies from the first list of 20 smart cities identified in the first phase of this program. This will be followed by an overview of the Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste and Electronic Waste (E-Waste) management issues in India in general and for the smart cities in particular. The new rules with respect to C&D Waste and E-Waste Management will be covered. The challenges of managing these waste streams effectively will be discussed.
