About this book
Chemical separations are of central importance in many areas of environmental science, whether it is the clean up of polluted water or soil, the treatment of discharge streams from chemical processes, or modification of a specific process to decrease its environmental impact. This book is an introduction to chemical separations, focusing on their use in environmental applications and containing many worked examples.

'It is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses on environmental separations or environmental engineering.' Chemical Engineering '! expertly written, and has an easy to read and follow style and arrangement. The illustrations are sufficient in number to perfectly accompany the text, and are extremely clear in presentation. I certainly enjoyed reading this book, and I would hope it would be of benefit to others who are interested in chemical separations in an environmental context.' Measurement + Control '! highly recommended as an introductory reference for those working in the selection and design of separation techniques and equipments applied in the closed cycle technology in order to mitigate the pollution of air, water and soil.'
