Learning objectives
Agricultural waste are organic matters which, through clean technology, can be recycled either by integrated waste utilization or simply returned to the place of their origin, nature. Agro wastes can usually be managed to be free of non-natural material, and so they could be appropriately recycled either by physical or biological means.
Clean technology can be implemented to minimize waste, thereby increasing productivity and reducing the unit cost of the product. Successful application of clean technology requires full support from management and full commitment from the clean technology team.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to identify the differences in clean technology propose mitigation strategies to control environmental impact caused by agro wastes, apply appropriate methodologies for the evaluation of sustainable strategies in different scenarios, identify the fundamental principles underpinning modern waste management and work effectively as a member of a multi-disciplinary team
