‘There is no such thing as “away.” When we throw anything, it must go somewhere.’- Annie Leonard.
‘Waste disposal’ is one of the biggest problems faced by the world at the moment! Waste is manageable, but the ever-increasing human population has completely messed up the management system. The small dumping grounds are only getting bigger to accommodate more dumps, thus adding to the environmental woes. Landfills, dumping grounds pollute the air, contaminate land, water, and what not!
Over the years, with the latest technology, advancements, endless new landfill alternatives for contaminated soil have been introduced. Here we have discussed a few:
The biological waste, rotten food, breaks down naturally, and goes back to the environment. Recently the process has caught up pace as the industrial landfills are swelling at a high rate.
The landfills in the world are filling at a rapid rate. The only way to accommodate ever-increasing garbage is to increase the size of the dumps, which would only end up hurting the ground, and they end up hurting the environment more. So, why not opt for the processes that could prove beneficial for the environment.
So, in this recycling process, you get rid of the toxic land filling process and instead work on creating something entirely new.
With the process, the volume of the waste is reduced massively. Now, in the process, 3 by-products are produced, namely- Syngas, slag, and residual heat. Here is how these are beneficial:
If sooner the smarter, eco-friendly waste disposal activities are not adapted, then it will only add to the list of endless ways in which we are disturbing the environment. Many countries, like the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, have already resorted to eco-friendly methods for managing garbage disposal. It is time for the rest of the world to take action!
