  • Recycling, International Trade and the Environment: An Empirical Analysis

    During the last century international trade has become indispensable for many economies. This is not only the case for trade in primary raw materials and consumer products but also for secondary (recyclable) materials. With the rapid growth of the recycling sector worldwide, trade in recyclables increased tremendously. It is striking that ...

  • Feedstock Recycling of Plastic Wastes

    The use of plastic materials has seen a massive increase in recent years, and generation of plastic wastes has grown proportionately. Recycling of these wastes to reduce landfill disposal is problematic due to the wide variation in properties and chemical composition among the different types of plastics. Feedstock recycling is one of the ...

  • Biodegradable Polymers and Plastics

    Proceedings of The 7th World Conference on Biodegradable Polymers & Plastics organized by the European Degradable Polymer Society in conjunction with the Bioenvironmental Polymer Society and the Biodegradale Plastics Society, under the auspices of ICS-UNIDO (Italy) and INSTM Consortium (Italy) and under the patronage of IUPAC - International Union ...

  • Frontiers in the Science and Technology of Polymer Recycling

    Polymers, main components of plastics and rubbers, are being discarded in increasing quantities. But this waste can also be considered as 'plastic gold'. Public concern, coupled with the inherent value of the material, means that recycling is imperative. The present book presents a survey of current knowledge in the form of case studies, ...

  • Waste Materials and By-Products in Concrete

    Non-hazardous waste materials and by-products which are mostly landfilled, can be used in making concrete and similar construction materials. This book gives an summary of this usage: one chapter is devoted to each material, comprising an introduction, chemical and physical properties, usage potential, and the impact of the material on the various ...

  • Handbook of Plastics Recycling

    Over the past 20 years recycling of plastics has increased dramatically. This is important not only from the environmental point of view (less landfill space is needed) but also from the economic point of view because recycling allows energy and materials to be reused. This book discusses some of the state-of-the-art techniques of recycling ...

  • Interfacial Applications in Environmental Engineering

    Describing novel methods and catalytic strategies to conserve and maintain air, water, and soil quality, researchers from a range of disciplines discuss the role of interface science in environmental remediation. They detail approaches to separate, reuse, recover, and treat potentially valuable materials using techniques in ion exchange and ...

  • Standards on Dosimetry for Radiation Processing, Second Edition

    This unique publication contains 31 of the latest standards on dosimetry for the radiation processing industry. These standards were developed by ASTM International's Subcommittee E10.01 on Dosimetry for Radiation Processing, which is comprised of most individuals, worldwide, known to be active in this field.To complement the ASTM dosimetry ...

  • PVC Degradation and Stabilization, 3rd Edition

    PVC stabilization, the most important aspect of formulation and performance of this polymer, is discussed in details. This book contains all information required to design successful stabilization formula for any product made out of PVC. Only four books have ever been published on PVC degradation and stabilization, and two of them are by this ...
