INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL
Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control by Martin B
Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control considers community, municipal, power generation, industrial, and transportation components of environmental impact. The book covers the major inorganic and organic commodity chemicals; aluminum, iron and steel, and copper prodution; pulp and paper; fermentation; petroleum production and refining. It also includes key topics and process details for major peterochemicals and large-scale consumer and engineering polymers. This single, convenient volume describes aspects of recycling at the industrial and post-consumer levels, and emphasizes a quantitative approach as used in the author's well-known lifecycle work with disposable and reusable cups.
SciVerse: Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control
The Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control (3rd Edition) provides a detailed review of the chemistry and operating conditions of many of the present large-scale chemical processes important to our economy and high standards of living. The processes that could lead to emissions affecting our air, soil, and water are considered, together with ways in which it may be possible to reduce or eliminate these pollutants. Focusing on cleaner production concepts without neglecting 'end of pipe' measures. With an increase in the awareness of corporate and social responsibility among business and industry leaders, the pressure to reduce harmful emissions and the desire to increase efficiencies and energy utilization, this book provides an essential resource. Suitable for researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students in the fields of chemical and biochemical engineering and environmental science, as well as government monitoring and regulatory agencies and industry leaders who want to stay one step ahead, this book will be a valuable addition to any library.
