This important book is an overall analysis of different innovative methods and ways of recycling in connection with various types of materials. It aims to provide a basic understanding about polymer recycling and its reuse as well as presents an in-depth look at various recycling methods. It provides a thorough knowledge about the work being done in recycling in different parts of the world and throws light on areas that need to be further explored. Emphasizing eco-friendly methods and recovery of useful materials

The book covers a wide variety of innovative recycling methods and research, including

• Green methods of recycling

• Effective conversion of biomass and municipal wastes

to energy-generating systems

• A catalyst for the reuse of glycerol byproduct

• Methods of adsorption to treat wastewater

and make it suitable for irrigation and other purposes

• Disposal of sludge

• The use of calcined clay to replace both fine and

coarse aggregates

• Recycling of rubbers

• The production of a sorbent material for paper mill sludge

• Replacing polypropylene absorbent in oil spill sanitations

• The use of natural fibers for various industrial


• Cashew nut shell liquid as a source of surface active


• Integrated power and cooling systems based on biomass

• Recycling water from household laundering

• much more
