Project Name : Mathematical Modeling in Solid Waste Management
Theme Name : Mathematics Modelling
Objective: To design a mathematical model for most appropriate calculation of waste disposal cost and explanation of interparametric linkages along with comparison of potentiality and suitability of a particular methodology for a set of condition.
Scientific Principle: Management of solid waste depends on type and quantity of waste generated.
Materials Used: A container, PVC pipes, submersible pump (6 volt), wire, switch, sand compost, liner, paper, colours, plywood, clay (Waste material was used wherever possible)
Findings: Through our investigation, we found that total MSW produced in Indore I around 800 MT which is a mixed waster as no segregation is done at source. The waste is collected & sent to MSW processing plant where it is mechanically shorted & used for producing RDF & compost. The unprocessed material is dumped in open landfill or burned in open.
Recommendation for effective, economical & eco-friendly solid waste management:
1. Encourage locals to reduce the quantity of waste generated.
2. Emphasize on segregation of waste at source.
3. Door to door collection of waste.
