Abstract

This book presents the latest advances in and current research perspectives on the field of urban/industrial solid waste recycling for bio-energy and bio-fuel recovery. It chiefly focuses on five main areas, namely bioreactor landfills coupled with energy and nutrient recovery; microbial insights into anaerobic digestion; greenhouse gas emission assessment; pyrolysis techniques for special waste treatment; and industrial waste stabilization options. In addition, it compiles the results of case studies and solid waste management perspectives from different countries.

Research Statement

Research Background Global per capita solid waste generation has more than doubled over the first 15 years of this millenium. As the human population is also forcast to experience unprecedented population growth, the managemnet of solid waste is becoming and increasing problem, particularly in developing nations experiencing the fastest population growth and the least resources for landfill management.
Research Contribution The book presents the latest advances in bioreactor landfills capable of energy and nutrient recovery, microbial insights into anaerobic digestion, greenhouse emission assessment, pyrolysis techniques for special waste treatment and industrial waste stabilization options. It combines the results of case studies and solid waste management perspectives from different countries.
Research Significance This book presents a solid background and method review for students and researchers in the municipal solid waste to energy conversion field. It synthesises details on current technological limitations and case studies afford a great data reference for experts in the field of solid waste management.
