Advances in Recycling Economy
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information
A circular economy (often referred to simply as "circularity") is an economic system aimed at minimising waste and making the most of resources. This regenerative approach is in contrast to the traditional linear economy, which has a 'take, make, dispose' model of production. In a circular system resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimized by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops; this can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, refurbishing, and recycling, all implemented via corporate and social entrepreneurship.

In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about Recycling Economy published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on Chemical Aspects of Renewable Energy, Energy-Saving, Environmentally Improved Routes and Methods, Greenhouse Effect, Zero Emission etc. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in Recycling Economy as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
