Summer School on Sustainable Waste Management "Sustainable Landfilling and Final Sink"

International Waste Working Group (IWWG) and Venice International University (VIU) organized intensive courses on Sustainable Waste Management.

"Sustainable Landfilling and Final Sink" (October 11-17, 2015)

Course aim:
Waste management is experiencing a fast transition from landfilling to sophisticated recycling and waste to energy plants. The summer school aims to give students an overview of the most recent and advanced technologies developed for the management of sustainable landfills. Activities linked to this broad topic range from the setup of a landfill, to the operational management of the site, including the exploitation of the gas produced, to the aftercare and remediation.
 
Course organization:
The course duration is nine days.
The course structure is problem oriented and includes lectures, seminars, group work, site visits and social events.
Lectures will be tought by prominent scholars and world experts in sustainable waste management.
 
Who can apply?
Master students who have completed all of their required course work, PhD students and young researchers from any university and any discipline with an interest in waste management able to read and write fluently in English. Applicants familiar with these subjects and already working in private companies or public administrations are welcome.
 
When to apply?
Applications are now open.

Sustainable Waste Management Winter School on Anaerobic Digestion

Winter School banner-02news

The Venice International University and the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) organized a Sustainable Waste Management Winter School on "Anaerobic Digestion: processes, technology, design and research advancement"

What is it about?

Anaerobic Digestion - AD - plays a fundamental role in modern waste management strategies and represents the best solution available today for the treatment of the biodegradable fraction of waste. AD technology optimizes sustainability targets by recovering and recycling resources and by reducing uncontrolled emissions of GHG that may occur in landfills. In the framework of the VIU-IWWG Winter School on Anaerobic Digestion, highly qualified experts will provide an in-depth insight into the processes governing AD, as well as detailed information on the technologies in use (both dry and wet), design protocols, calculation procedures, and the status and perspectives of scientific investigation in this field

Topics covered by the course include:

  • Anaerobic Processes
  • Substrates for Anaerobic Digestion
  • Anaerobic Digestion Technologies and Design
  • Treatment and use of biogas
  • Digestate Management
  • Biohydrogen Generation
  • Test Systems
  • Co-digestion
  • Anaerobic Digestion plants for developing countries


Program structure:

The course duration is nine days. Students will attend in-class lectures, participate to sessions of the Venice Waste Symposium, and take part in a field trip to two anaerobic digestion plants. During the whole duration of the school students will have the possibility to discuss their individual research activity. Additionally all students will work in groups developing new ideas while working on an assigned research projects. The groups will be supervised by tutors.
Social activities will be organized in the evenings.
Minimum number of students: 16, maximum number of students 30.

Who can apply?

Master students who have completed all of their required course work, PhD students and young researchers from any university and any discipline with an interest in waste management. Applicants familiar with these subjects and already working in private companies or public administrations are welcome. All participants must be able to communicate fluently in English.

When to apply?

Applications are now open. Apply before October 19.

Location:

Venice International University, Island of San Servolo, Venice (Italy).
