The proportion of recycled waste Walailak University

Walailak University has proactively developed according to the 5th Strategic Plan in enhancing its image as a sustainable green university city of happiness performed with concrete results and a role model for civil society in managing life or the city in a sustainable way appointing an environmentally friendly procurement committee to act Encourage personnel at Walailak University to as a consumer, use products and services that have an impact on the environment to be able to reduce the effect environmental impact help preserve natural resources and help reduce global warming problems from the selection of products and services that are generally available.

Starting from staff and students separate waste from the source properly. In the separation of waste within the university waste is divided into 6 categories: general waste, recycled waste, organic waste, biomass waste, infectious waste and hazardous waste. Then various agencies garbage will be collected at the garbage station for the waste management project, Walailak University to re-segregate before sending for disposal according to the type of waste as follows:

  1. General waste Garbage collection truck of Walailak University Waste Management Project will be transported to Walailak University Waste Management Project where the general waste will be re-sorted to separate into organic and inorganic waste.

              – Organic waste, food waste, vegetable waste will be brought into the process to be recycled into local animal feed such as native pigs, manure will be brought into the biogas production.

                – Inorganic waste such as plastic bags are put into the incineration process using the incinerator of the Walailak University Waste Management Project, which has applied waste management technology to produce renewable energy for renewable use within the area of the Walailak University Waste Management Project and the ash left after the waste incineration process is used as an ingredient in the production of concrete for use in the area.

  1. Recycling waste, various agencies will import the waste bank project, which is a collaboration between a private company and Walailak University                                                                                                                                                       
  2. Organic waste, such as food scraps, vegetable scraps, will be brought into the process of reusing into local animal feed such as native pig                                                                                                                                                                         
  3. Biomass waste

    – Stick fragments will be processed to be converted into bio-charcoal, used to nourish the soil, or be briquettes used as a green fuel

    –  Leaves and grass clippings will be used in the bio-composting process to be reused in Walailak gardens.

  4. Hazardous waste, the university will send it to the company or agency that is authorized to dispose of waste, such as chemicals in laboratories, etc.                                                                                                                                                             
  5. Infectious waste will be disposed of for incineration by the Walailak University Waste Management Project.

In 2021, the implementation of Walailak University the amount of waste is 1,642.5 tons per year It is divided into approximately 109.5 tons of recycled waste per year, which is taken into the waste bank which generates income back to the university food waste from the university cafeteria, approximately 47.45 tons/year, it is used to raise pigs and the excrement from pigs to produce biogas to renewable energy stick fragments and leaves contribute to the composting process of 2.2 tons/ year, which is reused in various parts of the university by recycling, doing the Eco-Block for making sidewalks in different areas approximately 1.2 tons / year. Moreover, waste will go into the incinerator process to be used to generate electricity for use in the Waste Management Center, Walailak University, around 730 tons/ year. This waste will be generated to the electricity about 43,800 tons / year. This can reduce the amount of waste from landfill disposal by 890.35 tons/ year.
