About this book

This timely text offers coverage of pollution prevention fundamentals, featuring examples and case studies drawn from the chemical process industries. Topics are presented on three different levels-macro, meso, and micro. The book's multifaceted approach provides a complete picture of current waste minimization theory and practice. Macroscale Comprehensive analysis of the flow of materials in the United States, from natural resource extraction to consumer product disposal Overview of waste generation and management for different pollutant types Assessment of pollution prevention opportunities using industrial ecology and product life cycle frameworks Mesoscale Detailed coverage of pollution prevention in chemical manufacturing processes Waste audits, emission inventories, flow sheet analysis, and many other important tools Waste reduction for unit operations, techniques for measuring economic benefits of pollution prevention, and more Microscale Case studies of reaction pathway analysis and material design methods Complete with case studies that give the material a real-world edge, plus worked examples to reinforce learning, this text is valuable to both advanced students and practitioners of chemical and civil engineering.
