examines the technological tools that are available in environmental management
and conservation. Environmental
Hydrology especially potable water production, wastewater treatment techniques,
Phyto-remediation, and other forms of environmental pollution remediation. The
course also covers current waste management practices, and environmental
effects, governing legislation, regulatory practices and enforcement,
integrated waste management components, landfill site selection, development of
waste management system applications.
Environmental Remediation methods are very
significant in developing student’s ability/ skills for restoring the damaged
ecosystems and preventing extinction of species and their habitats. Students
will be equipped with technological skill development, environmental
application, and solving problems for both natural and artificial environments.
This course is also designed to increase knowledge and understanding of
ecosystem stresses, management, conservation, and rehabilitation through
soil/environmental clean up practices.
By the end of this
course, the student should be able to:
and show understanding of different environmental remediation technologies for
land, water, biodiversity, and air environments.
bio indicator organisms and their roles in monitoring environmental pollution
bio-filters and wetland roles in containing environmental pollutants,
especially from wastewater
the significance of ground water, aquifers, and runoff.
some of the benefits and drawbacks of recycling of materials
the problems associated with incineration as a method of waste disposal.
how hazardous wastes are managed and list five technologies used in their
completing the course is expected to:
and explain the function of environmental technical process that can be used in
order to minimize pollutions to air or water.
advantages and disadvantages for different environmental technical solutions.
collect information from scientific literature and other information sources,
make a compilation of this information, and analyse it in a written report.
knowledge of management of municipal solid waste in relation to economic
changes in technology, awareness, and involvement of citizens.
