Sustainable Waste Management and Recycling: Challenges and Opportunities. 3 Volume Set

Description

Proceedings of the International Conference organised by the Concrete and Masonry Research Group and held at Kingston University - London at 14-15 September 2004

With the introduction of waste legislation, in the form of regulations and directives, in many parts of the world a significant move towards sustainable waste management is becoming a legal requirement. Emphasis
is now being placed on increasing recycling and promoting more sustainable waste management practices, and greater co-ordination between the public, private and independent sectors, and all concerned with the management of waste and reusable materials. However, sustainable waste management entails complex technological, environmental, social, cultural and economic issues.

This, together with technological advances in recycling, means the waste sector is facing enormous challenges in developing suitable waste management and recycling strategies. It is therefore necessary to share and explore existing expertise; to review and discuss the challenges in order to identify opportunities for improving waste management and recycling and promoting sustainable resource use.

The three volumes from part of the Proceedings of the two-day International Conference organised by the Concrete and Masonry Research Group within the School of Engineering at Kingston University, held in September 2004. The Conference deals with issues such as the regulatory framework, government policy, waste management, processing, recovery, the supply network, recycling opportunities, sustainable ways forward and the economics of sustainability.
