About this book

Production-Integrated Environmental Protection and Waste Management in the Chemical Industry Claus Christ (Editor) Production-integrated environmental protection is synonymous with - reducing the amount of potential pollutants at source - reducing the consumption of resources and energy - recycling and utilization of residues and used products, and therefore a topic of considerable current interest. No chemical process exists that produces only the product desired. Therefore it is an important aim of the chemical industry to reduce the environmental effects of residues of chemical processes. This can be achieved by: - optimizing processes - applying new synthesis routes - improving selectivity - replacing auxiliaries that have a harmful effect on the environment - production-integrated recovery of residues to name just a few possibilities. If you want to know more about them, have a look at Protection-Integrated Environmental Protection and Waste Management. There you will find examples from the chemical industry where modification of existing manufacturing processes or the design of new processes has led to reduction of environmental pollution. Data from companies are given who operate world-wide reflecting a multinational situation.

...discuss production-integrated environmental protection in the chemical industry, several specific examples of implementing the approach and waste management. (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 4, December 2001)
