Sustainable Utilization of Carbon Dioxide in Waste Management
This chapter discusses the emerging approaches for industrial waste management concerning carbon utilization to produce valuable products for use in public civil works. In doing so, we discuss various waste management concepts, such as zero waste, design for the environment, sustainable materials management, cradle-to-cradle, circular economy, and end-of-waste, to eliminate waste disposal in landfills, via designing new products that are durable as well as sustainable. Relevant waste management and new product regulations and issues that hinder the advance of a circular economy are discussed. In addition, for the use of carbon capture various aspects and issues related to the end-of-waste criteria are discussed related to storage and utilization products, which use waste materials that are classified as wastes. Finally, the Chapter ends with three (3) case studies to demonstrate the development of the end-of-waste criteria for (1) reprocessed aggregates from the building and construction industry; (2) slags from the iron and steel industry, and ashes from the coal-burning industry; and (3) carbon capture, storage and utilization products derived from CO2 mineral carbonation.
