Special Issue Information


Dear Colleagues,
Todays diverse solid waste management plans, implemented internationally, include, reducing,
recycling, reusing as much waste as practicable but what remains is either landfilled or
combusted at waste-to-energy facilities. Electricity and/or steam are produced in modern wasteto-energy facilities while metals are recovered and recycled. In many regions of the world, the
bottom ash, which represents 85% of the combustion residuals, is processed creating an
engineered aggregate and used in diverse applications. The remaining fly ash is typically treated

and disposed. This special issue will focus, in part, on advances in facility design,
implementation of state of the art air pollution control strategies, metal recovery and recycling,
ash management and beneficial utilization and the differences in regulations and permitting
implemented by various nations. Submissions addressing the environmental implications
associated with incorporating waste-to-energy as a solid waste management strategy are
encouraged. A primary goal of this special issue is to compile a global perspective on waste-toenergy technology and the associated issues surrounding this waste management strategy.
