The first edition described the concept of Integrated Waste
Management (IWM), and the use of Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) to
provide a way to assess the environmental and economic performance
of solid waste systems. Actual examples of IWM systems and
published accounts of LCI models for solid waste are now appearing
in the literature. To draw out the lessons learned from these
experiences a significant part of this 2nd edition focuses on case
studies - both of IWM systems, and of where LCI has been used to
assess such systems. The 2nd edition also includes updated chapters
on waste generation, waste collection, central sorting, biological
treatment, thermal treatment, landfill and materials recycling.
This 2nd edition also provides a more user-friendly model
(IWM-2) for waste managers. To make it more widely accessible, this
edition provides the new tool in Windows format, with greatly
improved input and output features, and the ability to compare
different scenarios. A detailed user's guide is provided, to take
the reader through the use of the IWM-2 model, step by step. IWM-2
is designed to be an "entry level" LCI model for solid waste -
user-friendly and appropriate to users starting to apply life cycle
thinking to waste systems - while more expert users will also find
many of the advanced features of the IWM-2 model helpful. IWM-2 is
delivered on CD inside the book.
