About this book

To produce without pollution is becoming an essential target for industry, and the strategy of waste minimization is increasingly seen as the best way forward. It is particularly relevant to the chemical and petrochemical industries, where large quantities of hazardous and toxic wastes are produced and can pose formidable problems. The high costs and difficulty of clean-up and "end-of-pipe" treatment clearly point to a need for waste minimization and pollution prevention concepts to be integral to the design and operation of the production processes. The 22 papers selected for this volume provide an overview of this important topic. With a clear focus on practical experience gained around the world, they cover the range of policies and technologies to minimize waste in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
