Summary

The book compiles research findings directly related to sustainable and economic waste management and resource recovery. Mining wastes, municipal, urban, domestic, industrial and agricultural wastes and effluents, that contain persistent organic contaminants, nanoparticle organic chemicals, nutrients, energy, organic materials, heavy metal, rare earth elements, iron, steel, bauxite, coal and other valuable materials, are significantly responsible for environmental contamination. They increase impacts on human life and biodiversity. There is currently a large volume of research in the realm of waste management and resource recovery, which has led to innovation and commercialisation of sustainable and economic waste management for improved environmental safety, which are summarised in this book.

Key Features:

  • Reviews the key research findings related to sustainable and economic resource recovery and waste management techniques
  • Discusses minimizing waste materials and environmental contaminants with a focus on recovering valuable resources from wastes
  • Mining waste can be used to re-extract minerals, provide fuel for power plants, and supply other valuable material
  • Presents research on recycling of municipal, urban, domestic, industrial and agricultural wastes and wastewater in the production and recovery of energy, biogas, fertilizers, organic materials and nutrients
  • Discusses topical interests of research resulting in patents and inventions for sustainable and economic waste management techniques and environmental safety
