Resource Recovery to Approach Zero Municipal Waste

Resource Recovery to Approach Zero Municipal Waste

Forthcoming

Mohammad J. Taherzadeh, Tobias Richards
December 01, 2017

Current development results in a linear flow from raw material to waste, which cannot be sustainable in the long term. Plus, a global population of 7 billion people means that there are 7 billion waste producers in the world. At present, dumping and landfilling are the primary practices for getting...
