Presentation / Conference
SIDDIQUE, S., YATES, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2018. Characterisation of oil based mud waste to explore the possibility in transforming waste into a value added product. Presented at the 6th International conference on sustainable solid waste management (NAXOS 2018), 13-16 June 2018, Naxos, Greece. Athens: National Technical University of Athens [online], paper number 45. Available from: http://uest.ntua.gr/naxos2018/proceedings/pdf/45_NAXOS2018_Siddique_etal.pdf

Waste characterisation is an essential factor in designing sustainable waste management plan. However, waste composition profile is underestimated in oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) industries in the United Kingdom. A three years long in...
