The Elimination of solid waste includes the removal of solid or semi-solid material that lack utility and which come from activities generated by human beings and animals.
We can divide this elimination into four easily distinct categories:
- household waste
- industrial waste
- commercial waste
- agricultural waste
In general, commercial waste and domestic waste tend to be wastes of organic, like paper, wood and textile products
On the contrary, industrial waste, mostly from type inorganic, such as ashes, debris from construction, chemical materials, paintings…
Last agricultural waste is usually the easiest delete as cow manure and the remains of pruning.
Methods of elimination
When selecting a method or other circumstantial and economic criteria of the zone in which it acts must be taken into account.
It consists of storing waste layers in places away from inhabited areas.
90% burns wastes. In addition to generating heat, can be used as an energy source, the burning produces CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
Development of fertilisers
Waste recycling in factoryFrom solid waste results in degradation of an organic substance using aerobic microorganisms. Later and after a period of about three weeks compost is ready to be packaged and sold.
Recovery of energy resources
They are processes of combustion and pyrolysis processes. Many incinerators take advantage of this heat to generate power, boilers and pipes that recirculate water and transform it into steam that drives turbines.
Solid waste recycling is an ancient technique. From metal, materials are melted down and reused to make instruments.
Some toxic chemical wastes are dangerous to human health and the environment. This type of waste is not removed, but it is stored into large containers in appropriate places for storage. It is almost always away from any human presence and possible tributaries, rivers or submarine waters, to prevent infiltration.
