About this book

Landfill remains the final destination for much of our waste, despite this solution being detrimental to the environment. Methane produced from landfill sites contributes significantly to the greenhouse effect, and represents a considerable loss of unharnessed energy. Much of what is simply disposed could be recycled, re-purposed or, in the case of rarer elements, recovered. Waste as a Resource examines the current situation and presents solutions to reducing the volume of material that simply becomes waste, indicating the wealth of resources existing in our garbage.

Biography

The series has been edited by Professors Hester and Harrison since it began in 1994.

Professor Roy Harrison OBE is listed by ISI Thomson Scientific (on ISI Web of Knowledge) as a Highly Cited Researcher in the Environmental Science/Ecology category. He has an h-index of 54 (i.e. 54 of his papers have received 54 or more citations in the literature). In 2004 he was appointed OBE for services to environmental science in the New Year Honours List. He was profiled by the Journal of Environmental Monitoring (Vol 5, pp 39N-41N, 2003). Professor Harrison's research interests lie in the field of environment and human health. His main specialism is in air pollution, from emissions through atmospheric chemical and physical transformations to exposure and effects on human health. Much of this work is designed to inform the development of policy.

Now an emeritus professor, Professor Ron Hester's current activities in chemistry are mainly as an editor and as an external examiner and assessor. He also retains appointments as external examiner and assessor / adviser on courses, individual promotions, and departmental / subject area evaluations both in the UK and abroad.
