Handbook of Aluminium Recycling Book Review:

The range of useful books and other publications on furnace engineering, thermodynamics and process engineering is vast. The specialized practitioner, however, is obliged, generally with some degree of effort, to filter out the information and processes for heat treatment of specific materials that are relevant to his or her needs. The "Handbook of Aluminium Recycling", published exclusively in English, guides the practitioner in the field of production, design or plant engineering in detail through the various technologies involved in aluminium recycling. An examination of aluminium as a material and of its recovery from natural raw materials sources, in the context of a brief introduction, is followed by discussion of the various processes and procedures. Melting and casting plants, and also metal treatment facilities, are described in detail, as are provisions and equipment for environmental and workforce safety. A separate chapter is devoted to plant planning, operation and control, in view of the fact that the arrangement of the individual plant elements has a significant influence on cost efficiency and dependable operation. The technologies used for remelting of aluminium are analyzed both for their particular potential uses in conjunction with the scrap charged and with the attainment of the target alloy. The illustration of design details enables the practitioner to judge whether, and how, the technology examined in each case might be used for any particular application. Thermodynamics and metallurgical facts required for understanding of the relevant processes are drawn from practice. The reader is thus provided with a detailed overview of the technology of aluminium recycling, and familiarized quickly and systematically with both long proven and new, innovative methods.

Recycling in Textiles Book Review:

An increasing amount of waste is generated each year from textiles and their production. For economic and environmental reasons it is necessary that as much of this waste as possible is recycled instead of being disposed of in landfill sites. In reality the rate of textile recycling is still relatively low. On average, approximately ten million tonnes of textile waste is currently dumped in Europe and America each year. Considering the diversity of fibrous waste and structures, many technologies must work in concert in an integrated industry in order to increase the rate of recycling. Recycling in textiles shows how this can be achieved. The first part of the book introduces the subject by looking at the general issues involved and the technologies concerned. Part Two explores the chemical aspects of textile recycling. Part Three focuses on recycled textile products, including nonwovens and alternative fibres. Finally, the last part of the book discusses possible applications of recycled textiles, including using recycled products in the operating theatre, for soil stabilisation and in concrete reinforcement. Recycling in textiles presents several promising technologies and ideas for recycling systems. This is the first book of its kind to bring together textile recycling issues, technology, products, processes and applications. It will prove an invaluable guide to all those in the industry who are now looking for ways to recycle their textile waste. Provides extensive coverage of this hot topic An invaluable guide for all in the textile industry Learn how to increase the rate of recycling
