9780123964595: Handbook of Recycling: State-of-the-art for Practitioners, Analysts, and Scientists

Winner of the International Solid Waste Association's 2014 Publication Award, Handbook of Recycling is an authoritative review of the current state-of-the-art of recycling, reuse and reclamation processes commonly implemented today and how they interact with one another. The book addresses several material flows, including iron, steel, aluminum and other metals, pulp and paper, plastics, glass, construction materials, industrial by-products, and more. It also details various recycling technologies as well as recovery and collection techniques. To completely round out the picture of recycling, the book considers policy and economic implications, including the impact of recycling on energy use, sustainable development, and the environment.

With contemporary recycling literature scattered across disparate, unconnected articles, this book is a crucial aid to students and researchers in a range of disciplines, from materials and environmental science to public policy studies.

  • Portrays recent and emerging technologies in metal recycling, by-product utilization and management of post-consumer waste
  • Uses life cycle analysis to show how to reclaim valuable resources from mineral and metallurgical wastes
  • Uses examples from current professional and industrial practice, with policy and economic implications
