Engineering for Profit from Waste
The great emphasis at the moment on safeguarding the environment from pollution, means that engineers and waste managers must find acceptable solutions to the problem of the safe disposal of industrial, municipal and agricultural wastes. The possibility of recycling waste by using landfill gas for power generation or refuse-derived fuel for heating, is also a consideration. This volume records the proceedings of the third European conference on this subject which was held in Dusseldorf in April 1991.
