Practical Handbook of Processing and Recycling Municipal Waste provides all of the information necessary for vastly improving the way we recycle materials. It first develops basic engineering and scientific theories related to processing and recycling municipal waste. The authors then show how the behavioral characteristics of waste can actually be predicted with some degree of accuracy, turning waste disposal engineering from a malter of guesswork into a science
Treats waste as a raw material, rather than as a problem
Explains clearly how waste processes work
Emphasizes refuse-derived fuels and composts
Outlines the use of mathematical modeling
Use tables and figures to illustrate points
