Solid Waste Technology and Management
THOMAS H. CHRISTENSEN
Solid Waste Technology & Management is an international reference book on solid waste. The book holds 11 chapters written by 78 experts from around the world.
The need for a new book on solid waste with a broad coverage of all aspects has long been recognized by many professors and professionals. However, it is impossible for a single person to be an expert in all fields of solid waste and if such a person existed, he would probably not have the time to write a comprehensive book of 1000 pages. Out of this schism, the idea emerged to involve many authors with a range of expertise and making a thorough edit of the contributions that emphasize the features of the book. This book has been developed over a 4-year period by the joint effort of 78 international solid waste experts. Members of IWWG, International Waste Working Group (www.iwwg.nu) and ISWA, International Solid Waste Association (www.iswa.org) as well as many other experts have contributed their expertise with the aim of supporting education and exchanging information on solid waste technology and management.
