With the advent of landfill tax, the waste management strategy, the landfill directive and producer responsibility, there is a growing realization that the land filling of unprocessed waste may pose environmental problems for future generations. There is considerable interest in alternative and/or improved methods of waste management including minimization, recycling and energy recovery. "Engineering for Profit from Waste" brings together a collection of reviewed papers that highlight opportunities for new products, technologies, systems and operating techniques and their implementation. This volume provides examples of current technologies, on-going research and development, and feedback from case studies. Topics covered include: incineration; pyrolysis; alternatives; materials recovery; and organic processes. "Engineering for Profit from Waste" provides an update in new legislation and regulations, alternative methods of waste management with emphasis on energy recovery, and current and competitive technologies. It should be of interest to waste managers, planners, developers, consulting engineers and designers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers.
