In recent years, the economy has determined the agenda when environmental issues are concerned using cost/benefit analyses. This inevitably leads to wrong decisions because the uncertainties of the cost/benefit analyses are often magnitudes higher than that estimated by the economists. Therefore, these analyses should be replaced or supplemented by the concept of sustainability to aid the decision-making process. This book represents the first attempt to apply eco-exergy, a thermodynamic concept used to describe the development of ecosystems, to express sustainability and use it in a non-ecological context.

This book clearly describes the basic concepts of thermal conversion of solid fuels and the contents are well-organized. The document is easy to read and it is well-written. Due to the current interest in "alternative thermal conversion systems" for the management of municipal solid waste or its different fractions, this publication is very timely and should be read by all of those who are interested in having a thorough understanding of thermal conversion of solid fuels. --Ecological Modelling, Vol 189, Issue 1, November 2006
