As global populations continue to increase, the application of biotechnological processes for disposal and control of waste has gained importance in recent years. Advances in Waste-to-Energy Technologies presents the latest developments in the areas of solid waste management, Waste-to-Energy (WTE) technologies, biotechnological approaches, and their global challenges. It combines biotechnological procedures, sophisticated modeling, and techno-economic analysis of waste, and examines the current need for the maximum recovery of energy from wastes as well as the associated biotechnological and environmental impacts.



  • Presents numerous waste management practices and methods to recover resources from waste using the best biotechnological approaches available.
  • Addresses the challenges, management, and policy issues of waste management and WTE initiatives.
  • Includes practical case studies from around the world.
  • Serves as a useful resource for professionals and students involved in cross-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary research programs and related courses.
  • Discusses the economic and regulatory contexts for managing waste.

This book will serve as a valuable reference for researchers, academicians, municipal authorities, government bodies, waste managers, building engineers, and environmental consultants requiring an understanding of waste management and the latest WTE technologies.
