Overview


Describes the potential impact of waste on the generation of clean energy. Provides coverage of such wastes as sludge, municipal solid waste, tires, waste plastics, automotive shredder residue, and biomass. Presents data on conversion processes and on the coprocessing of coal and wastes. Examines environmentally safe uses of energy byproducts, including coverage of the characterization, mitigation, and use of byproduct streams (ash or minerals) formed during the conversion of wastes.
