Dutta Jyotisikha Municipal Waste Management In Guwahati City


Guwahati City is facing a serious threat from the growing generation of municipal waste. The performance of municipal waste collection and disposal system in the city has been observed to be very poor. After introduction of Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) programme, the waste scenario is found to be more miserable. In a few places of Guwahati city, some local private bodies provided services of waste collection and disposal in their respective localities in terms of monthly payment before the ISWM programme. But advent of ISWM has created confusion among the beneficiaries regarding the efficiency of services and monthly payment procedure. A study has been made to find out the Willingness to Pay (WTP) of the people of Guwahati city for local private service for waste collection and disposal purposes along with the studies on municipal waste management of the city. A comparative study has also been conducted to find out the preference of the people for both the ISWM.

Muthoni Paul Stakeholder and solid waste


Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) constitute a serious problem in most cities in the developing countries. Most of them do not collect in totality the solid waste generated and from the amount collected only a small fraction is properly disposed. This unsustainable SW handling has acted a source of land, air and water pollution, thus, posing risk to humans and the environment as waste find its way on street, roadside and open fields. Most literatures claim that the increase of waste is as a result of urbanization, economic growth and globalization especially in the developing countries. The situation has led cities to increasingly invest in research, technology, infrastructures improvement and formation of a strong legislation in attempting to refurbish the failing SWM systems. But with the current conventional system of SW approach might not allow these attempts to gain stability. It is for this reason this paper examines decentralized approach effectiveness in solving the SWM problems and further supporting these effort using the city of Nairobi as a case study.

Rehab Rahman O.Abdel Cementitious Materials for Nuclear Waste Immobilization


Cementitious materials are an essential part in any radioactive waste disposal facility. Conditioning processes such as cementation are used to convert waste into a stable solid form that is insoluble and will prevent dispersion to the surrounding environment. It is incredibly important to understand the long-term behavior of these materials. This book summarises approaches and current practices in use of cementitious materials for nuclear waste immobilisation. It gives a unique description of the most important aspects of cements as nuclear waste forms: starting with a description of wastes, analyzing the cementitious systems used for immobilization and describing the technologies used, and ending with analysis of cementitious waste forms and their long term behavior in an envisaged disposal environment. Extensive research has been devoted to study the feasibility of using cement or cement based materials in immobilizing and solidifying different radioactive wastes. However, these research results are scattered. This work provides the reader with both the science and technology of the immobilization process, and the cementitious materials used to immobilize nuclear waste. It summarizes current knowledge in the field, and highlights important areas that need more investigation. The chapters include: Introduction, Portland cement, Alternative cements, Cement characterization and testing, Radioactive waste cementation, Waste cementation technology, Cementitious wasteform durability and performance assessment.
