About this book

Revised, updated, and rewritten where necessary, this third edition of Elements of Environmental Engineering contains new problems, an instructor's solutions manual available from the web site, and new examples that better illustrate theory. New topics include green chemistry and engineering, pollution prevention, global climate change, and more. The author discusses the applications of thermodynamics and kinetics in environmental processes. He also delineates the distribution of pollutants and the interrelationships between them. His demonstration of the theoretical foundations of chemical property estimations for environmental process modeling provides an understanding of the applications and limitations of various property correlations.
