Most industrial and hazardous waste management resources cover the major industries and provide conventional in-plant pollution control strategies. Until now however, no book or series of books has provided coverage that includes the latest developments in innovative and alternative environmental technology, design criteria, managerial decision methodologies, and regional and global environmental conservation. The new Handbook of Advanced Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment—together with its predecessor, the Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment—forms a complete and up-to-date resource that contains all the necessary technical information on hazardous industrial waste treatment. Providing in-depth coverage of treatment and management technologies in wide-ranging industries that readers simply won’t find anywhere else, this cutting-edge text addresses wastes in areas including metal finishing, food processing, milk production, foundries, and chemical manufacturing. It covers basic and advanced principles and applications in contemporary hazardous and industrial waste treatment and explores new methods of clean production, waste minimization, and the treatment of landfills and underground storage tanks. Coverage includes the latest developments in legislation, regulations, soil remediation, brownfield site restoration, bioremediation, enzymatic processes, and much more. Complete with numerous figures, tables, examples, and case histories, this book provides technical and economical information on how to develop a total environmental control program that can benefit both industry and local municipalities. This book combined with the Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment forms a resource that is comprehensive in scope and directly applicable to waste management problems in a broad range of industries.

Increasing demand on industrial capacity has, as an unintended consequence, produced an accompanying increase in harmful and hazardous wastes. Derived from the second edition of the popular Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment, Waste Treatment in the Process Industries outlines the fundamentals and latest developments in waste treatment in various process industries, such as pharmaceuticals, textiles, petroleum, soap, detergent, phosphate, paper, pulp, pesticides, rubber, and power. Comprehensive in scope, it provides information that is directly applicable to daily waste management problems throughout the industry. The book contains in-depth discussions of environmental pollution sources, waste characteristics, control technologies, management strategies, facility innovations, process alternatives, costs, case histories, effluent standards, and future trends for the process industry. It includes extensive bibliographies for each type of industrial process waste treatment or practice, invaluable information to anyone who needs to trace, follow, duplicate, or improve on a specific process waste treatment practice. A quick scan of the chapters and contributors reveals the depth and breadth of the book's coverage. It provides technical and economical information on how to develop the most feasible total environmental control program that can benefit both process industry and local municipalities.

Energy from Toxic Organic Waste for Heat and Power Generation presents a detailed analysis on using scientific methods to recover and reuse energy from Toxic waste. Dr. Barik and his team of expert authors recognize that there has been a growing rise in the quantum and diversity of toxic waste materials produced by human activity, and as such there is an increasing need to adopt new methods for the safe regeneration and minimization of waste produce around the world. It is predominately broken down into 5 sections: The first section provides and overview on the Toxic waste generation addressing the main components for the imbalance in ecosystem derived from human activity The second section sets out ways in which toxic waste can be managed through various methods such as chemical treatment, cracking and Electro-beam treatment The final 3 sections deliver an insight in to how energy can be extracted and recycled into power from waste energy and the challenges that these may offer This book is essential reference for engineering industry workers and students seeking to adopt new techniques for reducing toxic waste and in turn extracting energy from it whilst complying with pollution control standards from across the world. Presents techniques which can be adopted to reduce toxic organic waste while complying with regulations and extract useable energy it Includes case studies of various global industries such as nuclear, medical and research laboratories to further enhance the readers understanding of efficient planning, toxic organic waste reduction methods and energy conversion techniques Analyses methods of extracting and recycling energy from toxic organic waste products

Hazardous waste in the environment is one of the most difficult challenges facing our society. The purpose of this book is to provide a background of the many aspects of hazardous waste, from its sources to its consequences, focusing on the risks posed to human health and the environment. It explains the legislation and regulations surrounding hazardous waste; however, the scope of the book is much broader, discussing agents that are released into the environment that might not be classified as hazardous waste under the regulatory system, but nonetheless pose substantial hazards to human health and the environment. It provides a background of some of the major generators of hazardous wastes, explains the pathways by which humans and wildlife are exposed, and includes discussion of the adverse health effects linked to these pollutants. It provides numerous case studies of hazardous waste mismanagement that have led to disastrous consequences, and highlights the deficiencies in science and regulation that have allowed the public to be subjected to myriad potentially hazardous agents. Finally, it provides a discussion of measures that will need to be taken to control society’s hazardous waste problem. This book was designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences, including students, professionals, and general readers interested in the topic. Provides information about sources of and health risks posed by hazardous waste Explains the legislation and regulations surrounding hazardous waste Includes numerous case studies of mismanagement, highlights deficiencies in science and regulation and discusses measures to tackle society’s hazardous waste problems

The most comprehensive and convenient guide to date on the management, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials and waste. For the professional faced with making sense of the reams of governmental regulations surrounding waste handling and disposal from the EPA, OSHA, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, untangling the legal jargon can be as challenging as managing these materials and wastes. Explaining how these complex regulations interrelate and when they apply, the first edition of Hazardous Materials and Hazardous Waste Management became an instant reference staple–offering practical, comprehensive guidance on current definitions of hazardous wastes and materials as well as their use, management, treatment, storage, and disposal. Extensively revised and expanded with many new topics, this new Second Edition now covers additional areas such as water quality management, pollution prevention, process safety management, and transportation of hazardous materials and waste. Retaining its predecessor′s practical topical range, this edition is invaluable for the chemical and environmental engineer as well as the hazardous materials technician, with essential information on: ∗ Hazardous materials management in the workplace, from personal monitoring and protection to safety and administration. ∗ Treatment and disposal technologies. ∗ Environmental contamination assessment and management, including groundwater and soil, air quality, water quality, and pollution prevention. ∗ Process safety management, hazard assessment, emergency response, and incident handling. The first book to provide coherent treatment of both hazardous materials and waste management in one volume, the Second Edition of Hazardous Materials and Hazardous Waste Management secures this reference′s well–earned position in the professional′s library as a source of solid, timely technical information.
