BACKGROUND There is growing awareness among the general public as well as the authorities about healthy management of solid

wastes. Generated solid waste can be municipal solid waste or hazardous waste or e –waste depending upon the source. Burgeoning population growth and increase in the industrial production also resulted in the greater amount of solid waste generation. The current practice of indiscriminate disposal of waste in land and water is adversely affecting the society both economically and environmentally. The costs of remediation or cleanup of hazardous wastes contaminated sites are astronomical. Engineered landfill is one of the endof-pipe methods, which provides sustainable solution. In addition to the construction, there are operational problems associated with landfills which are highly concern to the public. Examples of these problems include landfill gas and leachate migration that can result in odors, groundwater contamination, escape and ignition of greenhouse and combustible gases. The most important factors that ensure success landfill are containment of the leachate and managing the gas and odour. Hence to address this issue, Indian Geotechnical Society, Chennai Chapter proposed to conduct this one day practical oriented national workshop on “Landfill design and construction”. Good practice in planning, design, implementation and management will result in better long-term performance of landfills. This workshop provides ways and means with complete practical aspects that needs to be considered for the design and construction of landfill.

WORKSHOP BENEFITS  Understand the landfill siting and its importance.  Understand the geoenvironmental aspects of landfill liner construction and its field evaluation.  Expose to the procedures for design and construction of landfill.  Apply the knowledge of latest practice in the landfill construction.  Understand the importance of quality control and checks during the landfill liner construction in order to achieve geosustainability.  Introduction to carbon sequestration, carbon credits and carbon trading in engineered solid waste landfill. Eminent personalities from Industry and Academy will deliver lectures on the above aspects. REGISTRATION FEE
