Book Description

This text identifies the problems and opportunities of converting wastes into useful materials or fuels. Chapters cover such issues as waste Utilization And Recycling; Plastics, Polymers, Tyres And Automotive wastes; and the potential usage of coal conversion by-products.

Table of Contents

Part 1 General: utilization of waste materials - examples of business successes; designing recycling to preserve innovation; coliquefaction of waste material with coal - a research programme of the Consortium for Fossil Fuel Liquefaction Science. Part 2 Plastics, polymers, tyres and Automotive Wastes: Advanced Recycling Technologies For Plastics; recycling of polymers from automotive shredder residue; pyrolytic reprocessing of scrap tyres into high-value products; co-processing of coal with waste tyres and polymers - "in situ" electron spin resonance investigations. Part 3 Biosolids, biomass and municipal solid wastes: fundamentals of hydrothermal pre-treatment of biosolids sludge - feedstock for clean energy; land application of biosolids; ethanol from biomass gasification/fermentation; genetic engineering for productivity in the fermentation of xylose to ethanol; gas recovery and utilization from municipal solid waste landfills; emissions from burning biomass - development of a model; co-processing of coal and paper/lignocellulosic wastes; mathematical analysis of an MSW incinerator. PArt 4 Coal conversion and by-products: selective leaching of coal and coal combustion solids residues; characterization of concretes formulated with blends of Portland cement and oil shale combustion ash; utilization of coal-tar pitch in insulating-seal materials; briquetting anthracite fines for recycling.
