About this book

Outlines methods in a time of great opportunity for chemists in this field.

This book will have great appeal to those within the chemical industry with an inquisitive mind, especially the process development chemist, but it should also give an insight for the more academically inclined into the chemical industry...There is a wealth of information on a wide variety of chemical reactions that can and might be effective in achieving the goals of waste minimisation and clean technology. It will be up to the chemical technologist and engineer to put these reactions to good (and profitable) use. - Atmospheric Environment; ...a welcome addition to the existing literature. - International Journal of Environmental Studies; ...very readable, the clarity of diagrams is commended...good balance in coverage...a very useful reference source for those with an interest in innovation and the clean technology challenge - Environmental Pollution; The appearance of this multiauthor work is to be welcomed. It should be available in every library and industrial chemical plant. Practitioners of applied chemistry will find in it many useful eideas for applying to their own operations, and it will help synthetic chemists involved in basic research to devise new synthetic routes that are more environmentally acceptable - Angewandte Chemie.; ...works well as a reference and source of ideas, and I suspect much of it will retain it's value for some years...I would heartily recommend it to any chemical engineers who have an interest in what we will (or should) be doing in the next twenty years Trans I ChemE; ...the first serious attempt to set the chemistry of waste minimisation in its proper context - the matrix of economic benefit and environment risk management. This book is highly recommended. - Chemistry and Industry
