Study Trip to Integrated Solidwaste Management

On Dec. 3, 2010, the Sino-Italian teachers of Integrated Solidwaste Management course led the IESD students to visit the Shanghai Jiangqiao Life Waste Incineration Plant, which is China's biggest life waste incineration plant. With the staff’s company, first of all, they watched a video clip in a conference room and had a preliminary understanding of the plant’s general situation. Then, they visited the exhibition hall, where they saw the operation simulation process of MSW incineration. Finally, they came to the operation monitoring room of the whole plant, and saw the garbage storeroom. This field trip has evoked students and teachers' consistent high praise. The students have profited a lot and had more in-depth understanding of MSW burning treatment.
