More About This Textbook


A special feature of the book is that it includes papers written by some of the leading specialists in the field of mining and metallurgy, and by environment specialists who are active in this sector. Some common environmental problems seen in the mining and metallurgical industries are described and their influence on the health of the population is discussed. Examples of best practice in the field are given both from EU countries and from Central and Eastern European nations, especially from the Newly Independent States (NIS).
