Municipal Solid waste Generation in KMUTT
Target: 40% of municipal solid waste reduction by 2024 compared to 2006 baseline
Current Status: In 2023, 32.89% of municipal solid waste reduces, compared to 2006 baseline.
To achieve the KMUTT university policy, municipal solid waste (MSW) management system has been developed since 2002. The system consists of the three main parts: waste segregation, waste collection and waste utilization. Organic waste, recycled waste, non-recycled waste, toxic waste and workshop waste are waste that generate within campus. The system is continuously developing through various activities such as exhibition and training program, which occur 5 time per year. The chart below gives information about the generation rate of municipal solid waste in kg/capita-year, recently the generation rate of municipal solid waste is at 23.17 kg/capita-year. In early 2006 the generating rate of MSW was at 35.84 kg/capita-year. However, it slightly decreased to 32.89% in 2023
Inorganic Waste Treatment
In 2023, the result from municipal solid waste segregation shows that Non-recycled waste and Non Recycled Workshop waste which defines as trash, discarded paper, plastic,metal and others are Inorganic waste with generate in the total of 82,240 kg. These inorganic waste have sent to the outsource services from Bangkok Metropolitan Administration for landfill and incineration which comply to standard practice. However, those inorganic waste is still tracked until it arrives at land fill. For the waste in this area, it collected and sent to Ratchathewa powerplant where they extract bio-gas from landfill.
