About the eBook

Waste generation is rapidly becoming one of the key problems of the modern world, due to the increasing waste generation rate as well as the complexity of waste composition. Damage to the environment caused by poor waste management can be avoided by implementing environmentally sensitive waste management techniques. Nevertheless, regardless of size, economic resources, or culture, every community must establish and maintain waste management systems that are appropriate and affordable. This book contains papers presented at the Fourth International Conference on Waste Management and the Environment, which provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information regarding the experiences and views on the current situation of waste management. This includes the description and discussion of technologies and strategies among professionals, researchers, government representatives, and local authorities. The papers are grouped under the following topics: Advanced Waste Treatment Technology; Energy from Waste; Landfills, Design, Construction and Monitoring; Resources Recovery; Waste Incineration and Gasification; Hazardous Waste; Computer Modelling; Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (3 Rs); Construction and Demolition Waste; Waste Reduction and Recycling; Waste Management; Methodologies and Practices; Soil and Groundwater Clean-up; Wastewater Treatment; Air Pollution Control; Community Awareness; Risk Assessment.
