About this book

This authoritative reference work provides a comprehensive review of the management, recycling, and reuse of waste composites. These are issues which are of growing importance due to increasingly strict legislation and concerns about disposal of composites by landfill or incineration. The first part of Management, Recycling and Reuse of Waste Composites reviews the management of waste composites and part two discusses current technologies for recycling waste composites. A third group of chapters examines the quality and use of recycled materials. The final sections of the book outline future trends and case studies.
