Summary
  • "The past few decades have witnessed a profound awakening of popular concern with environmental issues. As a result, known sources of air, land, and water pollution are now subject to more intense scrutiny than ever before, and engineers, managers and entrepreneurs in both the public and private sectors are required to have at least a fundamental working knowledge of environmental management. Written for those with little or no prior technical experience in pollution prevention and control, Handbook of Environmental Management and Technology provides those professionals with a firm foothold in a wide range of related technical, scientific, and regulatory issues."
  • "Unlike the majority of handbooks in the field, Handbook of Environmental Management and Technology is comprehensive in scope. Taking a uniquely historical perspective, it touches on virtually all the major pollution problems and their solutions. Divided into six parts, Part I offers an overview of the field as seen from a global perspective, dealing with topics such as the sources of pollution, the international effects of pollution, various regulatory approaches and more. Parts II and III are devoted to air and water pollution, respectively, and provide detailed coverage of basic dispersion and control issues as well as more specific topics such as acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and wastewater treatment. Part IV discusses general solid waste management issues, including municipal, medical and hazardous waste control, and then narrows its focus to examine a number of individual hazardous pollutants, including asbestos, oils and metals, underground storage tanks, and more. In Part V the authors address a host of miscellaneous issues including noise pollution, domestic and architectural considerations, comparative prevention approaches, and energy conservation. Part VI is devoted to daily management issues such as worker training and safety, crisis management, the monitoring of background contaminant levels, risk assessment and communication, and more." "Handbook of Environmental Management and Technology is a timely, comprehensive reference that belongs on the shelves of plant engineers and managers, industrial hygienists, and health and safety officers. It is also an invaluable resource for lawyers, reporters and other news media personnel, and regulatory officials who monitor pollution."--Jacket
