Air Pollution Control: Carbon Adsorption for VOCs
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course covers the absorber types, adsorption theory, design procedures and cost estimation procedures for carbon adsorption equipment.  This course also provides guidance for carbon adsorption technologies for VOC removal for air pollution control.

 

Carbon adsorption is used in air pollution control to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from low to medium concentration gas streams, when stringent outlet concentration level must be met and/or recovery of the VOC is desired.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for environmental, chemical, mechanical, civil, industrial engineers and other personnel concerned with air pollution control.
Learning Objectives

  • Familiarizing with the most commonly used types of carbon adsorption equipment
  • Knowing the three types of adsorbents commonly used
  • Understanding the definition of adsorption isotherm and be able to recognize the equation for the Freundlich isotherm
  • Familiarizing with adsorber sizing parameters
  • Learning how to make adsorption and desorption time calculations
  • Familiarizing with procedures for estimating carbon requirements
  • Familiarizing with cost estimation procedures for carbon adsorption systems

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Sanitary Landfills
COURSE NO: C02-018
An Introduction to Sanitary Landfills
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the planning and design of sanitary landfills including dry and wet landfills, site selection, site development plans, site layout, trench design, leachate control and treatment, gas control, runoff control, support facilities, and landfill closure issues.

 

The main advantage of a sanitary landfill is that handling and processing of refuse is kept to a minimum.  Handling is limited to the pickup and transport of the waste, the spreading of refuse, and covering with a suitable cover material.

 

New technologies that can produce a closed landfill system, a self contained system resulting in very little impact on the surrounding environment, have resulted  in more restrictive legislation and regulations  for sanitary landfills. Therefore, site selection and proper landfill design are considered the most important factors in the refuse disposal process.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for all engineers, design professionals, construction and solid waste operational personnel who are engaged in the planning, design and operation of sanitary landfills.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learn about the applications and characteristics of dry and wet landfills.
  • Learn about the two most commonly used methods of operating a landfill.
  • Learn about landfill site selection issues associated with nearby airports, wetlands, seismic impact zones, unstable areas, cover, existing site utilities and access.
  • Learn what features must be incorporated into landfill site development plans, and accompanying plans and narratives required to fully characterize the landfill site planning, design, operation and closure.
  • Learn the fundamentals of landfill trench design.
  • Learn the fundamentals of landfill cover requirements to minimize infiltration and erosion.
  • Learn about leachate, runoff, and gas control and sanitary landfills.

COURSE TITLE: Hazardous Waste Identification
COURSE NO: C04-051
Hazardous Waste Identification
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the hazardous waste identification process, describes how to determine if a waste is a solid waste, and provides the regulatory definition for hazardous waste. It also discusses those wastes specifically excluded from Subtitle C regulation and those wastes exempted when recycled.

 

Proper hazardous waste identification is essential to the success of the RCRA program. This identification process can be a very complex task. Therefore, it is best to approach the issue by asking a series of questions in a step-wise manner. If facility owners and operators answer the following questions, they can determine if they are producing a hazardous waste:

 

  • Is the material in question a solid waste?
  • Is the material excluded from the definition of solid waste or hazardous waste?
  • Is the waste a listed or characteristic Hazardous waste?
  • Is the waste delisted?

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended primarily for environmental, civil, and chemical engineers  and other technical staff who are interested in determining whether a given waste is a RCRA hazardous waste.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

 

  • Understanding the fundamentals of the hazardous waste identification process
  • Learning the definition of the term "solid waste" as used by RCRA
  • Learning the definition of hazardous waste
  • Identifying listed hazardous wastes
  • Identifying characteristic hazardous wastes
  • Interpreting the 'mixture' and 'derived-from' rules
  • Interpreting of the 'contained-in' policy
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, " Hazardous Waste Identification ".  It is Chapter III, Part 2 (Hazardous Waste Identification), from the 2014 edition of the USEPA RCRA Orientation Manual.

COURSE TITLE: Wastewater Treatment System Selection
COURSE NO: C02-009
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wastewater Treatment System Selection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the selection process of the subsurface wastewater infiltration system. It describes various steps involved in the selection process including understanding of the prevailing design conditions, matching these conditions to system performance, establishing design boundaries and boundary loadings, evaluating the receiving environment and mapping out the site.

 

Selecting the appropriate system type, size, and location at the site depends on the wastewater flow and composition information, site- and landscape-level assessments, performance requirements, and the array of available technology options. Key to selecting, sizing, and siting the system are identifying the desired level of performance and ensuring that the effluent quality at the performance boundaries meets the expected performance requirements.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, selection and design of subsurface wastewater infiltration systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills: 

  • Evaluating design conditions and selecting the appropriate system
  • Matching design conditions to system performance
  • Establishing design boundaries and boundary loadings
  • Evaluating the receiving environment
  • Mapping the site
  • Developing the initial system design
  • Rehabilitating and upgrading existing systems
