Description

360-Degree Waste Management, Volume One: Fundamentals, Agricultural and Domestic Waste, and Remediation presents an interdisciplinary approach to understanding various types of agricultural and domestic waste, including their origin, management, recycling, disposal, effects on ecosystems, and social and economic impacts. By applying the concepts of sustainable, affordable and integrated approaches for improvement of waste management, the book confronts social, economic and environmental challenges. Thus, researchers, waste managers and environmental engineers will find critical information for identifying long-term answers to problems of waste management that require complex understanding and analysis.

Presenting key concepts in the management of agricultural and domestic or municipal waste, this new volume includes aspects on the microbiology of waste management, advanced treatment processes, environmental impacts, technological developments, the economics of waste management and future implications.
