Publisher's Description

Following a tour through the largest and most energy-efficient waste-to-energy plant in the world, Dutch artist and designer Christien Meindertsma became intrigued with the dark residue leftover by the process of incinerating municipal solid waste. Using a 25-kilo sample of raw bottom ash, as it is called, she demonstrates the rich properties and versatility of this resource by successfully gleaning numerous materials from it by hand among them valuable reusable ones such as zinc, aluminium, copper, and silver. Meindertsma commissioned photographer Mathijs Labadie to document every step of this exhaustively precise process in a surprisingly scientific inquiry.
