About this book

A reference for technical personnel dealing with pollution control technologies and equipment, including major equipment and hardware for site remediation specialists, and technologies for site investigations, pollution control and pollution prevention. The author provides information for those concerned with meeting government regulations and with the economic considerations (such as fines for violations and cost-effective methods). He focuses on equipment selection, design and operation for environmental management and control purposes.


Part 1 Pollution prevention and control technologies: pollution control interrelationships; pollution prevention versus pollution control; planning pollution prevention and pollution control projects; incorporating pollution prevention into control methods; application of P2 and environmental audits. Part 2 Particulate control of air pollution: dry methods; economics of selecting particulate control equipment; fabric filters; cyclone separators; electrostatic precipitators; adsorption methods; combination systems. Part 3 Wet methods of air pollution control: wet scrubbers; Venturi scrubbers; adsorption. Part 4 Advanced air pollution controls: catalytic technologies; non-catalytic technologies; stack testing, monitoring and controls; chemical control of odours; non-chemical methods for odour control; carbon adsorption and combination technologies. Part 5 Stack testing and air pollution dispersion: meteorological factors; dispersion model parameters; simple dispersion models; EPA dispersion models; applying dispersion model predictions to control technology selection. Part 6 Wastewater treatment methods: industrial water treatment; surface water quality; neutralization methods; chemical treatment methods; water and wastewater disinfection technologies; ion exchange; ultraviolet water purification; deep well disposal methods; ozone; pollution prevention technologies. Part 7 Filters and filtration: removal of suspended solids; dewatering and sludge concentrating equipment; flocculation; sludge filtration; reverse osmosis ultrafiltration; tube settlers; trickling filters; filtration aids and associated equipment. Part 8 Aeration: aerators; design principles for aerators; compressed air subsurface aeration; dispersed air flotation; economics of aeration. Part 9 Solid waste handling and management: industrial solid waste handling and disposal equipment; safe handling of hazardous solid wastes; economics of solid waste management; volume reduction methods; recycling technologies; composting technologies; landfill methods; pollution prevention technologies. Part 10 Incineration disposal of solid wastes: incineration emissions; incineration economics; cogeneration economics and technologies; sludge incineration; fuels blending incineration; wet air oxidation; catalytic technologies; fluidized bed technologies; pyrolysis and glassification methods; high temperature technologies. Part 11 Pollution prevention and product recovery; processing and reclaiming; recycling; plastics recycling methods; chemicals recycling methods; metals recovery and recycling methods; destructive distillation methods for polymeric wastes; solids recovery by spray drying; on-site disposal and energy recovery.
