Conversion And Utilization Of Waste Materials
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.
