Description

Resource Recovery Technology for Municipal and Rural Solid Waste: Classification, Mechanical Separation, Recycling, and Transfer describes the practical considerations in recycling solid waste—from source characterization to recycling of end product—with the aim of maximizing pollution control and resource recovery. Topics covered include source classification models, solid waste treatment and resource recovery, integrated mechanical separation and parameter optimization, and the collection and transfer of classified domestic solid waste. The book details pollution control and resource recovery in every stage of municipal and rural solid waste management for solid waste engineers, environmental scientists, and academics and students in waste management. The book goes into significant detail on each stage of the process, including separation technologies according to the difference of particle size, material density difference, the difference in optical, electrical and magnetic effects of materials, preparation of plastic composites, and production of composite boards with organic waste from domestic solid waste. The book also includes a thorough case study of success in solid waste management using these techniques as an example of the application of these technologies.
