  1. Classification of unregulated landfills by waste stream analysis method, a case of Chief Albert Luthuli Municipality, South Africa

    Classification of unregulated landfills by waste stream analysis method, a case of Chief Albert Luthuli Municipality, South Africa

    The characterisation of unregulated landfills as general landfills is misleading particularly because these landfills are used to dispose of a mixed stream of general and hazardous waste. Unregulated landfills are unlicensed on-land waste disposal facilities that are not designed, constructed...
  2. Determination of energy efficiency for water heating in eight South African hotels

    Determination of energy efficiency for water heating in eight South African hotels

    This study presents a characterization framework for energy efficient hotels. It builds on existing frameworks of energy efficiency and the adopted characterization framework advances from the input-output framework. The theoretical framework was developed through an in-depth literature analysis. In contrast...
  3. Environmental health risks associated with e-waste exposure in Badplaas, Carolina and Elukwatini landfills, Republic of South Africa

    Environmental health risks associated with e-waste exposure in Badplaas, Carolina and Elukwatini landfills, Republic of South Africa

    A recent study identified a mixed stream of waste in Badplaas, Carolina and Elukwatini landfills. However, the risks associated with the situation in the three selected towns remains unknown. Thus, this paper fills this gap of qualitatively assessing the potential...
  4. Influence of energy saving on the quality of lighting services on selected hotels in Mpumalanga, Republic of South Africa

    Influence of energy saving on the quality of lighting services on selected hotels in Mpumalanga, Republic of South Africa

    This paper presents the results of an investigation undertaken on the influence of energy saving on the quality of lighting services on selected hotels in Mpumalanga, one of the nine provinces of the Republic of South Africa. This paper adopted...
  5. A review of factors associated with indiscriminate dumping of waste in eleven African countries

    A review of factors associated with indiscriminate dumping of waste in eleven African countries

    Most developing countries grapple with management of solid waste and environmental health risks associated with insanitary conditions. Indiscriminate dumping of household and industrial waste remains an alternative means of waste disposal for communities that have no access to reliable refuse...
  6. A review of microbial hazards associated with meat processing in butcheries

    A review of microbial hazards associated with meat processing in butcheries

    Meat is highly nutritional and rich in proteins, which makes it a good substrate for possible microbial growth. As a result, in its raw state, meat is easily susceptible to colonization by microorganisms. This study describes the possible sources of...
