Municipal Solid Waste: Process Technology

  • Robert F. Vokes
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 67)


MSW may be considered as a useful raw material for many purposes and products. The determination of a course of action is controlled by economic factors which are related to a geographical situation. Therefore, the management of a given source of MSW may involve only the collection, transportation and disposal in a sanitary land fill with a potential of future land reclamation as well as recovery of methane from the biodegradation of the biomass.
