Clean Energy from Waste and Coal

Front Cover
Identifies problems and opportunities for deriving clean and economical power from the thermal conversion of municipal solid waste, sludge, biomass, plastics, and tires. The 22 papers, from a symposium at the American Chemical Society meeting, August 1991 in New York City, consider the fundamental and applied aspects of the waste-to-energy conversion; and the characterization, use, and disposal of the byproduct ash. Among specific topics are recovering ethanol from municipal solid waste, biomass-fueled gas turbines, and a new correlation for estimating the heating value of sewage sludge. Coal is mentioned only as an added fuel. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
