Research project: Design of an advanced Mechanical Biological Treatment (AMRT) System for municipal solid waste (MSW) management in Kano State, Nigeria

Abstract

There is an estimated annual generation of over 2 million tonnes of Municipal Solid Waste in Kano metropolis, the second largest city in Nigeria, and over 94% of this volume is sent to four uncontrolled landfills around the city, causing dangerous emission of Greenhouse gas emissions and flooding of the residential areas during the rainy season.Three of the four main landfills are already filled and the last one is expected to be exhausted before the end of 2017. The aim of this research study is to design a mechanical biological treatment (AMBT) system model that can effectively separate the organic fractions of municipal solid waste into refuse derived solid fuel in a technically efficient and economically feasible manner.
