About the author

Justin Hargreaves obtained his PhD from the University of Liverpool in 1990, holding subsequent postdoctoral positions at ETH Zurich and at the University of Liverpool. From 1994-2000, he was a Senior Research Fellow at Nottingham Trent University, and from 2001-2002 a Principal Scientist at the Leverhulme Centre for Innovative Catalysis. In 2002, he took up his current position as Lecturer at the Department of Chemistry, University of Glasgow. He became Senior Lecturer in 2006. His research interests centre upon the elucidation of structure-activity relationships in heterogeneous catalysis, particularly for oxidation and alkane activation reactions, and have resulted in the publication of ca 55 papers to date. He has served as Honorary Secretary of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Surface Reactivity and Catalysis subject group (1998-2002) and was a member of the Faraday Council (2000-2003). He is currently a committee member of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Thermal Methods Group. Since 2004, he has been a member of the Council of the International Association of Catalysis Societies.

S. David Jackson obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1979. He was an ICI postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Hull for three years before joining ICI plc in 1982. For the next 18 years Professor Jackson was a senior scientist with ICI, his last role was that of Synetix RT&E Group, Strategic Technology Manager, which had a remit for the development of new science areas. He joined the University of Glasgow in 2000 as Professor of Catalysis Science. His research interests lie in the areas of metal catalysed hydrogenation, heterogeneous catalysis in fine chemicals synthesis, catalyst deactivation, dehydrogenation and adsorption. He has over 140 publications in the area of catalysis, and is author of 13 patents. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Current Topics in Catalysis and was a member of the Editorial Board of Applied Catalysis A, from 2004-2007. He has served as treasurer (2005-2007) and secretary (2003-2005) of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies and is currently chairman of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Surface Reactivity and Catalysis subject group.

Concern about the fate of waste products produced by a wide range of industrial processes has led to the realization that they may have potential uses and, therefore, value. In an effort to develop more sustainable processes and reduce waste storage, the use of waste as a resource has been gaining attention worldwide. Consequently, there have been a large number of studies aimed at utilizing such wastes. Conversion of Large Scale Wastes into Value-added Products discusses various selected classes of large-scale waste and their current applications and potential future applications.

This book provides a snapshot of a continually evolving field, which includes both well-established processes and a drive toward developing strategies for new applications of wastes. The first chapter provides a general introduction to the area of large-scale waste utilization, including drivers for waste recovery, and secondary processes and products for waste reuse. Subsequent chapters discuss applications and potential applications in specific classes of large-scale waste:

Various types of waste generated from different metal processing operations Waste generated by coal combustion, a major source of power generation that produces enormous quantities of waste Waste electrical and electronic equipment, important for recycling finite resources and reducing health and environmental risks Food waste, a significant and diverse waste stream with economic and environmental impacts

The final chapter presents a general conclusion to the broad subject of waste utilization, summarizing the topics and addressing future trends in waste research.
