Show synopsis Drawing from a variety of engineering and science disciplines, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the complex field of hazardous waste management. It is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students taking a first course in the subject. The "Landmark Episodes" section provides readers with an historical understanding of the field of hazardous waste management. Divided into four main parts, the book covers: fundamentals, current management practices, treatment and disposal methods, and site remediation. Much of the book is devoted to treatment methods which give practical engineering examples of application of technology to hazardous waste management. The text also contains 100 worked examples and 300 problems to solve. Detailed case studies give students the necessary equations and design examples to evaluate the effectiveness of different treatment and contaminant technologies in addressing today's hazardous waste situation.
