About the Book :

The book, “Solid Waste Management: Compendium of case Studies” is driven by the earnestness of fostering the embracing of safe solid waste management practices in India. The number of accessible landfills is reducing, the health risks associated with waste incineration are of great concern and the growing public / NIMBY opposition  to sitting new waste management facilities is a growing problem. The book tries to present a full picture of the state-of-the-art research and development of actionable knowledge discovery in new initiatives in solid waste management through a compendium of case studies. This book is an attempt to address the ever-present challenges and intricacies from a real-world perspective. It presents recent developments and discoveries in solid waste management practice and its associated risks of air, water and soil pollution to stimulate more research and to rapidly pass on such discoveries to the community.
