Editorial Reviews

Environmental Engineering
...a well presented documentary on the problems and solutions appertaining to waste incineration and is a must for those concerned with the design and operation of incineration processes. It contains a wealth of information that will meet the needs of students as well as practicing engineers and has particular relevance to those dealing with environmental problems.
From The Critics
This reference for environmental engineers covers the technology of waste incineration systems from a process viewpoint. Considerable attention has been given to the chemical and physical processes which control system behavior. Topics include incineration systems for hazardous and nonhazardous gaseous, liquid, sludge, and solid wastes. The third edition features new material addressing the controversy surrounding metal waste combustion and air pollution. An IBM compatible floppy disk contains templates for heat and material balance calculations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Booknews
A revised and updated reference/text that provides the techniques needed to interpret field data, critique and/or develop combustion designs, and evaluate proposed alternatives, guiding readers from an understanding of basic principles to the development of efficient engineering subsystems and total incineration facilities. The topics concerned with basic waste combustion processes (atomization, chemical kinetics of pyrolysis and oxidation, mixing, etc.) have been expanded. Applications are presented relevant to hazardous wastes and their incineration systems. Analysis methods and discussions of key design parameters for several additional incinerator types (especially those for burning sludges, liquids, and gases) have been significantly enlarged. Disk included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
