Recycling and recovery routes of plastic solid waste (PSW): a review.
Plastic solid waste (PSW) presents challenges and opportunities to societies regardless of their sustainability awareness and technological advances. In this paper, recent progress in the recycling… Expand
Life cycle assessment of energy from waste via anaerobic digestion: a UK case study.

Particularly in the UK, there is potential for use of large-scale anaerobic digestion (AD) plants to treat food waste, possibly along with other organic wastes, to produce biogas. This paper presents… Expand
The valorization of plastic solid waste (PSW) by primary to quaternary routes: From re-use to energy and chemicals
Polymers are the most versatile material in our modern day and age. With certain chemicals and additives (pigments, concentrates, anti-blockers, light transformers (LTs), UV-stabilizers, etc.), they… Expand
Gas retention in fine-grained pyroclastic flow materials at high temperatures
The ability of a dense pyroclastic flow to maintain high gas pore pressure, and hence low friction, during runout is determined by (1) the strengths and longevities of gas sources, and (2) the… Expand
Techno-economic performance of energy-from-waste fluidized bed combustion and gasification processes in the UK context
This paper presents the technical and economic performance of energy-from-waste (EfW) fluidized bed combustion and gasification processes and reports on the implications of different scales and… Expand
Economic and environmental scheduling of smart homes with microgrid: DER operation and electrical tasks
A mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model is proposed to schedule the energy consumption within smart homes using a microgrid system using electricity tariff, CO 2 intensity and electricity task time window. Expand
Kinetic study of high density polyethylene (HDPE) pyrolysis
In this study, 15 mg samples of high density polyethylene (HDPE) were pyrolysed in an isothermal thermogravimetric set-up in a micro-thermobalance reactor with pre-set temperatures. The objective was… Expand
Performance analysis of RDF gasification in a two stage fluidized bed-plasma process.
The major technical problems faced by stand-alone fluidized bed gasifiers (FBG) for waste-to gas applications are intrinsically related to the composition and physical properties of waste materials,… Expand
