Objectives
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE FALL IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE GENERAL OBJECTIVE OF THE DEGREE COURSE WHICH PROVIDES THE TRAINING OF A PROFESSIONAL EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF MONITORING, EVALUATION, MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL AND ANTHROPOGENIC RISKS AND TERRITORY MANAGEMENT.

WASTE MANAGEMENT MODULE (PROF VENDITTO):
THE REFERENCE PROFESSIONAL FIGURE OF THE EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS MODULE. HE IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL OPERATOR EXPERT IN THE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF WASTE MANAGEMENT FROM THE LEGAL TO THE TECHNICAL INSTALLATION.
DUBLIN 1 DESCRIPTOR (KNOWLEDGE / KNOWLEDGE)
THE TEACHING PROVIDES:
- THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD OF WASTE, BOTH AS REGARDS REGULATORY ASPECTS IN THE ITALIAN AND EUROPEAN CONTEXT, AND RELATIVE TO THE THEORETICAL ASSUMPTIONS AND TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF THE ACTIONS OF THE WASTE CYCLE.
- REGULATORY AND TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE FOR SETTING UP A CORRECT WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE
- THE DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE MOST COMMON SYSTEMS IN THE FIELD OF WASTE TREATMENT AND DISPOSAL
- THE BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR AN ANALYSIS, BASED ON THE "EVALUATION OF THE LIFE CYCLE", OF THE WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE
- KNOWLEDGE ABOUT POLLUTION DUE TO THE INPUT OF WASTE INTO THE ENVIRONMENT
IN ADDITION, THE STUDENT IS ALWAYS MADE AVAILABLE UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION ON THE SITUATION OF THE PRODUCTION AND FATE OF WASTE IN ITALY AND IN THE EUROPEAN CONTEXT.

DUBLIN 2 DESCRIPTOR (SKILLS / KNOW-HOW)
THE TEACHING ENABLES THE STUDENT TO:
- ADDRESSING PROBLEMS RELATING TO WASTE MANAGEMENT BOTH FROM A REGULATORY POINT OF VIEW AND TECHNICAL ASPECTS
- CONTRIBUTE TO THE SETTING (OR EVALUATION) OF A WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE ADHERING TO THE REGULATION AND CURRENT PLANT AVAILABILITY
- COMPARE THE PLANT CHOICES OF A MANAGEMENT CYCLE USING AN APPROACH BASED ON THE "EVALUATION OF THE LIFE CYCLE"
- ADDRESSING THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH POLLUTION DUE TO THE ENTRY OF WASTE INTO THE ENVIRONMENT

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT MODULE (TEACHER TO BE ASSIGNED):
THE REFERENCE PROFESSIONAL FIGURE OF THE EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS MODULE. HE IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL OPERATOR EXPERIENCED IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THE POLLUTION OF WATER BODIES, THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE SOIL.
DUBLIN 1 DESCRIPTOR (KNOWLEDGE / KNOWLEDGE)
STUDENTS WILL ACQUIRE THE KNOWLEDGE NECESSARY FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND TECHNICAL-ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT, STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT AND IMPACT ASSESSMENT.
DUBLIN 2 DESCRIPTOR (SKILLS / KNOW-HOW)
STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE DECISIONS RELATING TO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ISSUES AND TO USE SUPPORT SYSTEMS, TO IDENTIFY SOLUTIONS TO THESE ISSUES, BASED ON MULTICRITERIAL ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES.
Prerequisites
NO PARTICULARS, PREREQUISITES ARE REQUIRED, IF NOT BASIC PHYSICAL-MATHEMATICAL KNOWLEDGE AND NOTIONS IN THE CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL FIELD ALREADY ACQUIRED WITH THE ATTENDANCE OF A SECONDARY SCHOOL (UPPER SECONDARY SCHOOL) BUT BETTER STILL WITH A THREE-YEAR DEGREE IN THE TECHNICAL FIELD. SCIENTIFIC.
Contents
WASTE MANAGEMENT MODULE (4 CREDITS; 2 CREDITS EXERCISES):
THE WASTE MANAGEMENT FORM IS STRUCTURED IN THE FOLLOWING TOPICS:
- DEFINITIONS AND CLASSIFICATIONS OF WASTE (4 HOURS FRONTAL, 4 HOURS OF EXERCISES)
- INTERACTION OF WASTE WITH THE ENVIRONMENT (6 HOURS FRONTAL, 4 HOURS OF EXERCISES)
- THE HIERARCHY OF ACTIONS OF THE WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE AND THE DESIGN OF A VIRTUOUS WASTE CYCLE (4 HOURS LECTURES, 4 HOURS OF EXERCISES)
- THE PRODUCTION AND THE FATE OF WASTE IN EUROPE, ITALY AND CAMPANIA (4 HOURS FRONTAL)
- PREVENTION IN PRODUCTION: REGULATIONS AND GOOD PRACTICES (4 HOURS FRONTAL, 4 HOURS OF EXERCISES)
- WASTE TREATMENT AND PLANT: 1) RECOVERY OF ORGANIC MATERIAL AND COMPOSTING TECHNIQUES (2 HOURS FRONTAL, 4 HOURS OF EXERCISES); 2) MATERIAL RECOVERY AND BIOLOGICAL MECHANICAL TREATMENT (2 HOURS FRONTAL); 3) ENERGY RECOVERY AND THERMAL TREATMENT TECHNIQUES (2 HOURS FRONTAL);
- WASTE DISPOSAL: LANDFILLS (2 HOURS FRONTAL);
- COMPARISONS BETWEEN TREATMENT TECHNIQUES: THE "LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT" (LCA) APPROACH TO WASTE MANAGEMENT (4 HOURS LECTURES, 4 HOURS OF EXERCISES)

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT MODULE (5 CREDITS; 1 CREDITS EXERCISES):
THE "ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT" MODULE IS STRUCTURED IN THE FOLLOWING TOPICS:
- CHARACTERIZATION OF THE MAIN SOURCES OF POLLUTION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMPARTMENTS AND OF THE MAIN POLLUTANTS (4 HOURS FRONTAL).
- SUMMARY OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL LAW (4 HOURS FRONTAL).
- ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT (8 HOURS FRONTAL, 4 HOURS EXERCISES).
- SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR THE MITIGATION OF THE IMPACTS ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMPARTMENTS: A) WATER TREATMENT AND WASTEWATER PURIFICATION (URBAN AND INDUSTRIAL) (8 HOURS FRONTAL, 2 HOURS EXERCISES); B) MEASURES FOR THE PREVENTION OF SOIL CONTAMINATION FROM ANTHROPIC POLLUTING ACTIVITIES (INDUSTRIAL SETTLEMENTS, WASTE LANDFILLS, ETC.) AND POLLUTION MITIGATION MEASURES (SECURITY AND REMEDIATION) (8 HOURS FRONTAL, 4 HOURS EXERCISES); C) SOLUTIONS AND PROCESSES FOR THE REDUCTION OF POLLUTANT EMISSIONS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE (8 HOURS FRONTAL, 2 HOURS EXERCISES)
Teaching Methods
WASTE MANAGEMENT MODULE: TEACHING METHODS:
LECTURES ON THE THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF THE COURSE AND GUIDED TOURS TO WASTE MANAGEMENT PLANTS

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT MODULE:
THEORETICAL LESSONS, CLASSROOM EXERCISES AND TECHNICAL VISITS.
THE STUDENTS OF THE COURSE, DIVIDED BY WORKING GROUPS, ARE ASSIGNED A PROJECT THESIS CENTERED ON THE TOPICS OF THE COURSE.

THE ATTENDANCE OF THE LESSONS IN THE CLASSROOM IS NOT OBLIGATORY, THAT OF THE EXERCISES AND VISITS TO THE PLANTS ARE STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

MODULO VALUTAZIONE D'IMPATTO AMBIENTALE (PROF. FIORENTINO):
AS REGARDS THE "ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT" MODULE, THE COURSE INCLUDES THEORETICAL LESSONS, EXERCISES IN THE CLASSROOM AND TECHNICAL VISITS. TO THE STUDENTS OF THE COURSE, DIVIDED BY WORK GROUPS, A PROJECT PAPER FOCUSING ON THE TOPICS OF THE COURSE IS ASSIGNED.
Verification of learning
WASTE MANAGEMENT FORM
ORAL EXAM LASTING 45 MINUTES.
EACH STUDENT WILL HAVE TO ANSWER A SERIES OF QUESTIONS THAT COVER ALL THE TOPICS OF THE COURSE.
THE AIM OF THE TEST IS TO VERIFY THE STUDENT'S KNOWLEDGE OF THE THEORETICAL ASSUMPTIONS UNDERLYING WASTE MANAGEMENT FROM BOTH A LEGAL (IN THE ITALIAN AND EUROPEAN CONTEXT) AND TECHNICAL PLANT POINTS OF VIEW. SIMILARLY, THE FINAL EXAM INTENDS TO VERIFY THE STUDENT'S ABILITY TO SET UP (OR EVALUATE) A WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE THAT COMPLIES WITH THE LEGISLATION AND IS BASED ON THE MOST CURRENT SYSTEMS IN THE SECTOR.
THE MINIMUM MARK FOR PASSING THE EXAM IS 18/30, AND IS AWARDED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS A LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF THE THEORETICAL ASSUMPTIONS THAT INSPIRE THE WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE FROM BOTH A LEGAL AND TECHNICAL PLANT POINT OF VIEW.
THE MAXIMUM VOTE (30/30) IS AWARDED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS A COMPLETE AND IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE THEORETICAL ASSUMPTIONS THAT INSPIRE THE WASTE MANAGEMENT CYCLE FROM BOTH A LEGAL AND TECHNICAL PLANT POINT OF VIEW AND IS ABLE TO DESCRIBE A CYCLE IN DETAIL OF WASTE MANAGEMENT THAT COMPLIES WITH THE LEGISLATION AND BASED ON THE MOST CURRENT PLANT ENGINEERING IN THE SECTOR.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT FORM:
VERIFICATION OF LEARNING WILL CONSIST IN EXPOSURE AND DISCUSSION OF THE PROJECT THESINE AND IN THE SUBSEQUENT ORAL INTERVIEW AIMED AT VERIFYING THE LEARNING OF THE TOPICS COVERED IN THE COURSE
THE MINIMUM MARK FOR PASSING THE EXAM IS 18/30, AND IS AWARDED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS A LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF THE POLLUTION OF THE WATER BODIES, THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE SOIL.
THE MAXIMUM VOTE (30/30) IS AWARDED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS A COMPLETE AND IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE KNOWLEDGE NECESSARY FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND TECHNICAL-ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND STRATEGY ASSESSMENT.

FOR BOTH MODULES, PRAISE MAY BE ATTRIBUTED TO STUDENTS WHO REACH THE MAXIMUM VOTE OF 30/30 AND WHO SHOW TO BE ABLE TO APPLY AUTONOMY KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS ACQUIRED EVEN IN CONTEXTS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED IN THE LESSON
Texts
WASTE MANAGEMENT MODULE:
THE USE OF THE PROFESSOR'S HANDBOOKS IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH LESSON, STUDENTS ARE PROVIDED WITH THE SLIDES OF THE LESSON IN PAPER FORM AND AT THE END OF THE COURSE AN ELECTRONIC COPY OF ALL THE LESSONS HELD IS MADE AVAILABLE.
AS REGARDS THE PLANT ENGINEERING PART, HOWEVER, CONSULTATION OF THE TEXT IS RECOMMENDED:
GIOVANNI DE FEO, SABINO DE GISI, MAURIZIO GALASSO,
“SOLID WASTE. DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF TREATMENT AND DISPOSAL PLANTS ", DF EDITORE, 2012

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT MODULE: WITH REGARD TO THE "ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT" MODULE, THERE IS NO SPECIFIC REFERENCE TEXT, SO THE USE OF THE PROFESSOR'S HANDBOOKS IS RECOMMENDED. SOME TEXTS ARE RECOMMENDED DURING THE COURSE TO DEEPEN THE TOPICS COVERED.
