About this book

This book provides an in-depth coverage of treatment and management technologies in wide-ranging industries with a cutting-edge text that addresses wastes in areas including metal finishing, food processing, milk production, coal mines, foundries and chemical manufacturing. It covers basic and advanced principles and applications in contemporary hazardous and industrial waste treatment and explores new methods of clean production, waste minimization and the treatment of landfills and underground storage tanks. Coverage includes the latest developments in legislation, regulations, soil remediation, brownfield site restoration, bioremediation and enzymatic processes.

Complete with numerous figures, tables, examples, and case histories, this book provides technical and economical information on how to develop a total environmental control program that can benefit both industry and local municipalities.
