- Uses examples from current professional and industrial practice, with policy implications and economics, to present a real-world portrait useful to engineers and professionals as well as academics

Description

In concept, this book is an Encyclopedia-style authoritative description of the various aspects of material reuse and recycling (including technology, policy, economics) by leading authors from around the globe.
This book resolves the problem of there currently (nor published in the past decade) being no single book that provides an authoritative review of the state-of-the-art in recycling. This book should resolve that, by providing a state-of-the-art review of all aspects of recycling.
The author's intention in writing this book was to provide the market with a basic textbook on recycling that could be used by students, scholars, and decision makers, as well as stakeholders in the recycling industry, for the next few years.
