About This Book
Sustainable Resource Management
Learn how current technologies can be used to recover and reuse waste products to reduce environmental damage and pollution
In this two-volume set, Sustainable Resource Management: Technologies for Recovery and Reuse of Energy and Waste Materials delivers a compelling argument for the importance of the widespread adoption of a holistic approach to enhanced water, energy, and waste management practices. Increased population and economic growth, urbanization, and industrialization have put sustained pressure on the world's environment, and this book demonstrates how to use organics, nutrients, and thermal heat to better manage wastewater and solid waste to deal with that reality.
The book discusses basic scientific principles and recent technological advances in current strategies for resource recovery from waste products. It also presents solutions to pressing problems associated with energy production during waste management and treatment, as well as the health impacts created by improper waste disposal and pollution. Finally, the book discusses the potential and feasibility of turning waste products into resources.
Readers will also enjoy:
- A thorough introduction and overview to resource recovery and reuse for sustainable futures
- An exploration of hydrothermal liquefaction of food waste, including the technology's use as a potential resource recovery strategy
- A treatment of resource recovery and recycling from livestock manure, including the current state of the technology and future prospects and challenges
- A discussion of the removal and recovery of nutrients using low-cost adsorbents from single-component and multi-component adsorption systems
Perfect for water and environmental chemists, engineers, biotechnologists, and food chemists, Sustainable Resource Management also belongs on the bookshelves of environmental officers and consultants, chemists in private industry, and graduate students taking programs in environmental engineering, ecology, or other sustainability related fields.
