Energy from Waste is a concise, up-to-date and accessible guide on how to create power from both urban and industrial waste.

The book contains a strong emphasis on the related environmental impacts and economic factors involved in the various methods of generating electricity, making this a valuable and insightful read for those involved in the management and conversion of waste, including energy engineers, managers and technicians
