About this book

In this sequel volume to ACS Symposium Series No. 422, Emerging Technologies in Hazardous Waste Management, the editors expand their coverage of the subject with contributions on air treatment, as well as a greater examination of computer applications and modelling. Twenty-one chapters are divided into four sections covering thermal treatment and abiotic emissions control, water management, biological treatment, and solid waste management. Of special interest is a presentation on the use of internal radiant energy within a gas-fired combustion chamber to maintain high combustion temperatures, a technique that appears important for the thermal destruction of many chlorinated species.


Emerging Technologies for Hazardous Waste Management II: Overview; Hazardous Material Destruction in a Self-Regenerating Combustor-Incinerator; Fundamental Studies of Incineration of Contaminated Soils in an Electrodynamic Balance; Calcination of Calcium Hydroxide Sorbent in the Presence of SO[2 and Its Effect on Reactivity; Strategies for Photochemical Treatment of Wastewaters; Disposal of Toxic Wastes by Using Concentrated Solar Radiation; Oxidation Technologies for Groundwater Treatment; Multicomponent Ion-Exchange Equilibria in Chabazite Zeolite; Decontamination of Low-Level Radioactive Wastewaters by Continuous Countercurrent Ion Exchange; Economic Model for Air Stripping of Volatile Organic Chemicals from Groundwater with Emission Controls; Biodegradation of Munition Waste, TNT (2,4,6-Trinitrotoluene), and RDX (Hexahydro-1,3,5-Trinitro-1,3,5-Triazine) by Phanerochaete chrysosporium; Studies on the Biodegradation of Volatile Organic Chemicals in a Biofilter; Detoxification of Organophosphorus Pesticide Solutions: Immobilized Enzyme System; Sequencing Batch Reactor Design in a Denitrifying Application; Contaminant Leaching from Solidified-Stabilized Wastes: Overview; Importance of Soil-Contaminant-Surfactant Interactions for In Situ Soil Washing; Mechanisms of Mobilization and Attenuation of Inorganic Contaminants in Coal Ash Basins; Enhanced Metal Mobilization Through Leachants Containing Acetate Ion; Three-Dimensional Soil Venting Model and Its Applications; Comparison of Fixation Techniques for Soil Containing Arsenic; Abovegrade Earth-Mounded Concrete Vault: Structural and Radiological Performance
