The amount of waste that modern society produces is astounding. Could it be put to better use? Dr. James Clark, Dr. Avtar Matharu, and Dr. Andrew Hunt from the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence profile different case studies on how modern technologies can be used to maximize the chemical potential of food and e-waste.

What You Will Learn

  • What we now describe as waste can be an important future resource
  • E-waste and bio-wastes (including food supply chain waste) are important resources
  • Technologies exist to capture value from these waste streams
