Review:
The present two conference proceedings are bound together in a single volume, in a bizarre way, apparently for economic reasons. The previous volumes of “Waste processing” were published in 1992, 1995, 1998 and 2001. The present volume (2004) contains 51 papers organized under the following headings:

  • Keynote lectures (5)
  • Iron and steel (4)
  • Metal recycling (6)
  • Slag processing and utilization (5)
  • By-product processing and utilization (6)
  • Resource recovery from process wastes (5)
  • Tailings and effluent treatment (10)
  • Environmental aspects (4)
  • Basic research, mineralogy(5)
  • Special (1)

The volume covers in this way the whole spectrum of waste processing and recycling of minerals ant metals. Needless to say such book will be of the great help to research workers in this field.

"Greenhouse Gases" proceedings is composed of 8 papers. The first paper - Global Warming - Reality of Conjecture? - by John Stubbles, and old timer steel industry consultant, presents data refuting the idea that CO2 is responsible for global warming. He claims that the media had been biased in their reporting on this topic and he vigorously defends the US decision to reject the Kyoto protocol. Among his arguments he claims that ".. according to IPCC studies, the annual flux of CO2 in nature back and forth (i.e., 150 carbon equivalent billion tons released and 154 billion sequestered) dwarfs the 7 billion released by man". He concludes that "the undeniable rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere should be welcomed because they are beneficial to plant growth and yields".
