Abstract

The increasing generation of solid waste, varying waste compositions, and inefficient waste recovery processes have limited the performance of traditional approaches. It is urgent to collect a virtual special issue (VSI) that consolidates research on efficient models and better treatment technologies to break up the current system limitations. Recently, Solid Waste Management (SWM) strategies that focus on reuse and recycling have revealed their current limitations or challenges. An awareness of the progress in addressing these limitations through the advancement in available technologies and the development of new systematic approaches for SWM are of increasing importance not just for advanced but more for emerging economies. Herein, this VSI aims to provide a review and collect important studies for SWM on reuse and recycling. The challenges and future opportunities in the application of SWM have been discussed to highlight the potential development in this VSI.
