The book "Waste to Energy: Opportunities and Challenges for Developing and Transition Economies" by Avraam Karagiannidis includes two sections written by members of the Wuppertal Institute. The book gives an overview of different energy-from-waste approaches.

 

As part of his doctorate Philip Nuss wrote together with Stefan Bringezu and Kevin H. Gardner the contribution "Waste-to-material: The Longterm Option". It is not only about generating energy from waste, but also recycling carbon for use as material feedstocks.

 

Henning Wilts' paper "The Ambiguos Relation Between Waste Incineration and Waste Prevention" deals with the importance of waste for a sustainable resource management.
