Abstract

The first part of the review paper dealt with general information and covered the specific sectors of paper/cardboard and aluminium cans. The present Part 2 should be read in conjunction with Part 1 and assesses the recovery and recycling of additional post-consumer waste sectors, i.e. glass beverage bottles, plastics, scrap metal and steel cans, end-of-life tyres, batteries and household hazardous waste. For each of the sub-sectors, the specific products are described, the recycling processes briefly evaluated and both environmental and research aspects summarised. The waste availability, the existing and further developing recovery and recycling technologies, and the economic rewards stress the importance of this waste management sector. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.
