Expert in Hazardous and Solid Waste Management, Waste to Energy, etc.
Expert ID: 724611 India
She has governed operation of direct landfilling, landfilling after treatment, solidification /stabilization, and incineration .
Expert research and doctorate work also focuses on hazardous waste solidification/stabilization. She has worked on different waste streams received at TSDF site. She has governed hazardous waste stabilization operation on commercial scale. She was responsible for the characterization of waste and deciding cost effective solidification/stabilization method.
Stabilization of hazardous waste was her research topic. She has publication on the performance evaluation of hazardous waste stabilization in peer reviewed journals. She has worked on physico–chemical, leaching parameters. She has tested performance of stabilized product matching international standards.
Expert has worked for major cities like Bangalore, Indore for development of plan for management of municipal solid waste (MSW). MSW quantitative and qualitative characterization studies were completed for these two cities. The disposal and management suggestions made by her are implemented in these cities for the management of MSW.
Expert has a strong analytical background. She has worked on water, waste-water, air, soil, hazardous and municipal waste analysis. Fuel proximate and ultimate analysis. Biogas generation and analysis from different waste was also performed.
She has experience of industrial, commercial and residential environmental monitoring and regulations. Expert has done environmental baseline data creation for TSDF site. This data generation involve surface, ground water analysis, air quality, noise, soil analysis. A useful conclusion can be drawn on the impact of particular activity on environment. The analytical procedure used comply Indian and International standards and regulations.
She has worked on consultancy projects for water quality analysis and performance of effluent treatment plant.
Air quality analysis of residential, commercial and industrial area were also performed at different stages of her career. Lead levels investigations due to vehicular pollution in air, soil and blood levels in Indore city is a appreciated work done by her.
Solidification/stabilization of hazardous waste from Pharmaceutical, Engineering, textile, oil and refineries industries. Waste containing heavy metals, organics and volatiles were treated before landfilling.
Comprehensive analysis and consultation of industrial waste was helpful to many industries to trace functional problem in their industrial plant. for example. A heavy metal reported by Expert in the waste was out of process flow. Waste bearing dye from note press was stabilized before landfilling. Outdated pesticides and insecticides were disposed off. This work was done for governmental firm.Batteries were disposed off under special condition to comply with all regulation and disposal criteria. A cost effective technique of macroencapsulation was designed for bulk disposal of about 10MT waste. Municipal solid waste qualitative and quantitative analysis was performed for Bangalore and Indore, India. The study and suggestions made for final treatment and disposal of waste are implemented in the treatment and disposal facilities of the city. Many researcher contact Expert for environmental and hazardous waste analysis. The leaching and analytical procedure developed are used at different TSDF sites of India. Air water, soil and other environmental regulatory analysis work was guided by Expert for the preparation of baseline data and environmental monitoring.
