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.

Editorial Reviews

Identifies problems and opportunities for deriving clean and economical power from the thermal conversion of municipal solid waste, sludge, biomass, plastics, and tires. The 22 papers, from a symposium at the American Chemical Society meeting, August 1991 in New York City, consider the fundamental and applied aspects of the waste-to-energy conversion; and the characterization, use, and disposal of the byproduct ash. Among specific topics are recovering ethanol from municipal solid waste, biomass-fueled gas turbines, and a new correlation for estimating the heating value of sewage sludge. Coal is mentioned only as an added fuel. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
