About this book

This book covers mechanical processing of solid waste. It moves beyond a basic understanding of waste control to encompass waste processing as an industry expected to take its place alongside existing industrial raw materials suppliers. The author begins by describing the industry as it should develop, and then presents an advanced discussion of waste analysis, including a description of the features of a waste analysis laboratory. He goes on to describe universal design principles in waste processing, then discusses combustion, degradation, shredding, screening, air classification, metals separation, and automated materials detection. The focus throughout is on the analytic understanding of principles of operation necessary to undertake recycling and resource recovery with a cost-effective industrial approach. Richard I. Stessel has been doing research and design in resource recovery engineering for over 15 years. He is a registered Professional Engineer and board certified in Solid Waste Engineering by the American Academy of Environmental Engineer's Solid Waste Processing Division and chairs the Landfill and Composting Committee of the Air & Waste Management Association. Fachgebiet: Environmental Engineering Zielgruppe: Application
