Presenting effective, practicable strategies modeled from ultramodern technologies and framed by the critical insights of 78 field experts, this vastly expanded Second Edition offers 32 chapters of industry- and waste-specific analyses and treatment methods for industrial and hazardous waste materials-from explosive wastes to landfill leachate to wastes produced by the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Key additional chapters cover means of monitoring waste on site, pollution prevention, and site remediation.
Including a timely evaluation of the role of biotechnology in contemporary industrial waste management, the Handbook reveals sound approaches and sophisticated technologies for treating
textile, rubber, and timber wastes
dairy, meat, and seafood industry wastes
bakery and soft drink wastes
palm and olive oil wastes
pesticide and livestock wastes
pulp and paper wastes
refinery and metal plating wastes
power industry wastes
This state-of-the-art Second Edition is required reading for pollution control, environmental, chemical, civil, sanitary, and industrial engineers; environmental scientists; regulatory health officials; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
New subjects are presented in detail for the first time in any industrial waste treatment book. The team of contributors is of high scientific level and demonstrates that special efforts were made to invite experts to contribute chapters in their own areas of expertise. The book is to be used as a reference for professors, students, and researchers . The extensive bibliographies should be invaluable to managers and researchers who need to improve on a specific industrial waste treatment practice.
