About the book

The book will reflect the state-of-the-art on the waste power plant. It is envisioned as split into 6 main topics: 1) pyrolysis and gasification processes, 2) co-incineration of waste, 3) waste-to energy: approach, challenges and case studies, 4) plastic waste as energy sources in cement kilns, 5) best available techniques for waste incineration, and 6) life cycle assessment. The chapters are expected to be structured around problems illustrated by the keywords and future innovations in the development and application of the current state of knowledge with a view to waste power plants operation. The editors are hoping that this book is to move the knowledge on the waste power plant process one step forward and assists in developing environmental and human health protection awareness of the incineration of waste. It will hopefully be of interest to scientific researchers, industry managers, and experts from environmental and public interest groups.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
