Catalysts derived from waste materials

Driven by sustainability, large scale wastes represent an interesting and, as yet, largely untapped resource for the production of catalytic materials. In this chapter, some of the recent literature in this area is detailed. Iron containing waste derived catalysts, incineration waste derived catalysts, carbons applied for catalytic purposes derived from wastes and base catalysts derived from wastes are discussed. Whilst recent years have witnessed a greater awareness of the valorisation of waste materials in this way, it is still apparent that in depth cost-benefit analyses and also greater consideration of the practicality of their application need to be made.
