Soft Computing Techniques in Solid Waste and Wastewater Management is a thorough guide to computational solutions for researchers working in solid waste and wastewater management operations. This book covers in-depth analysis of process variables, their effects on overall efficiencies, and optimal conditions and procedures to improve performance using soft computing techniques. These topics coupled with the systematic analyses described will help readers understand various techniques that can be effectively used to achieve the highest performance. In-depth case studies along with discussions on applications of various soft-computing techniques help readers control waste processes and come up with short-term, mid-term and long-term strategies. Waste management is an increasingly important field due to rapidly increasing levels of waste production around the world. Numerous potential solutions for reducing waste production are underway, including applications of machine learning and computational studies on waste management processes. This book details the diverse approaches and techniques in these fields, providing a single source of information researchers and industry practitioners. It is ideal for academics, researchers and engineers in waste management, environmental science, environmental engineering and computing, with relation to environmental science and waste management. Provides a comprehensive reference on the implementation of soft computing techniques in waste management, drawing together current research and future implications Includes detailed algorithms used, enabling authors to understand and appreciate potential applications Presents relevant case studies in solid and wastewater management that show real-world applications of discussed technologies

Strategic Perspectives in Solid Waste and Wastewater Management explores conventional and advanced biotechnologies for waste management, including socio-economic aspects, techno-economic feasibility, models and modeling tools, and a detailed life-cycle assessment approach in solid waste (SW) and wastewater (WW). These innovative technologies are highly applicable to current real-world situations. The enormous increase in the quantum and diversity of SW and WW - including waste materials generated due to human activity and their potentially harmful effects on the environment and public health - have led to increasing awareness about an urgent need to adopt novel technologies for appropriate management of both SW and WW. While there is an obvious need to minimize the generation of wastes and to reuse and recycle them, the technologies for managing such wastes can play a vital role in mitigating problems. Besides recovery of substantial energy, these technologies can lead to a considerable reduction in the overall waste quantities requiring final disposal, which can be better managed for safe disposal in a controlled manner while meeting pollution control standards. Outlines appropriate technologies for solid waste and wastewater management systems and their applications Presents and evaluates the Best Available Technology (BAT) and includes global case studies Provides methods for evaluating the way to use appropriate technological systems to develop the best technically and economically feasible projects worldwide Offers an excellent resource for university students to use for their research and dissertations

A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. Circular economy (CE) is important towards sustainable development, resources circulation and conservation, involving closing of material loops and cascading used resources, to prevent waste occurrence, and transforming the resulting residual streams into new (secondary) resources. Strategies and legislative framework for waste management are important steps for development of a more CE where resource efficiency becomes the key driver for both economic growth and environmental protections. A few countries achieved good results implementing CE as a replacement of the linear economy. Resource managers and planners should thoroughly identify factors to implement CE for societal benefits. This book presents how resource consumption is minimized with rational use based on 3Rs, legislative framework and government supports towards implementing CE initiatives, example of best practices, future plans and targets in different countries those are helpful for researchers, planners and implementers.
