About this book

Hazardous Waste Incineration: Evaluating the Human Health and Environmental Risks summarizes recent research by experts in the United States. Commissioned in part by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, this volume compiles reports and observations from specialists of various fields. Fourteen chapters respond to the key questions posed by the researchers: What is known about existing hazardous waste incinerators, and their impacts on human health? Can the impacts of a proposed facility be evaluated before it is built, and if so, how? What is the regulatory compliance record of existing commercial hazardous waste incinerators? What methods can be used to monitor a facility's impacts after it is built?
