This stellar reference addresses the ongoing global transition in cleaning up the remains of abandoned technology, the prevention of pollution created by existing technology, and the design of future zero emission technology. The Handbook provides daily problem-solving tools and information on state-of-the-art technologies for the future. Chapters contain both introductory material and very specific technical answers to complex questions. Because analytical results are an essential part of any environmental study, analytical methods used in environmental analysis are presented as well.
