Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on a symposium held in Atlanta, Georgia in October 1991, this volume is both an introduction to hazardous waste treatment for the novice and a reference for the technical expert. Specialists in emerging technologies for treating and managing gaseous, liquid, and solid wastes contribute 22 chapters arranged within five sections: physical and chemical wastewater treatment, biological treatment, soil remediation and treatment, treatment of volatile compounds, and selected mixed-waste treatment applications.
