Test: Disposal of Solid Wastes - Question 2

Which one of the following solid waste disposal methods is ecologically most acceptable?

Detailed Solution for Test: Disposal of Solid Wastes - Question 2

The leachate from sanitary landfill tend to pollute ground water. Incineration and pyrolysis release air pollutants. Composting does not have any harmful effect.

Test: Disposal of Solid Wastes - Question 3

Sewage sickness occurs when

Detailed Solution for Test: Disposal of Solid Wastes - Question 3

When sewage is applied continuously on a piece of land, the soil pores or voids may get filled up and clogged with sewage matter retained in them. Thus free circulation of air will be prevented and anaerobic conditions will develop within the pores. Sewage sickness is the condition when soil pores get filled up and clogged with sewage matter due to continuous application of waste water effluents. This develops anaerobic conditions and foui gases like methane, carbon-dioxide and hydrogen sulphide are evolved.
In order to prevent sewage sickness:
(i) Sewage should be given primary treatment
(ii) The soil chosen for effluent irrigation/sewage farming should be sandy or loamy.
(iii) A proper under drainage system (open jointed drains) should be designed.
(iv) Land should be given rest for some time and ploughed thoroughly.
(v) Rotation of crops to be followed.
(vi) Shallow depths of water should be applied.

Test: Disposal of Solid Wastes - Question 4

Which of the following materials are used as landfill sealants for the control of gas and leachate movements?
1. Lime
2. Sand
3. Bentonite
4. Fly ash
5. Butyl rubber
Select the correct answer using the codes given below:

Detailed Solution for Test: Disposal of Solid Wastes - Question 4

Sealants are used of control for gas and leachate movement


The sealant material should be more impermeable than the soil. So sand will not be a suitable material. Flyash and lime themselves produce pollutants which dissolve in water. Therefore these materials cannot be used as sealants.
