A-Z guide to hazardous waste clean-up

Offering the time-saving guidance of leading specialists in the field, Handbook of Complex Environmental Remediation Problems introduces you to today's best methods of cleaning up hazardous waste. This comprehensive tool from Jay Lehr, Marve Hyman, Tyler Gass and William Seevers gives you a comprehensive review of every current engineering solution, and provides expert help with waste minimization and pollution prevention. Featuring both US and international applications, the Handbook is a vital on-the-job tool for environmental engineers, safety engineers, industrial hygienists, chemical engineers, civil engineers, and any other engineer or manager responsible for clean-up-- and regulators who must evaluate the results of these programs. You’ll find in-depth discussion of :

  • surfacewater
  • groundwater
  • soils'
  • solid waste
  • hazardous waste
  • oil spills
  • hazardous contaminants in the marine environment and discharges in the atmosphere
  • remediation of radioactive and mixed waste
  • remediation of hazardous waste from mineral mining and oil well drilling
  • more

    JAY LEHR has a career in environmental science spanning six decades with 14 books in print and over 400 journals. He began his career with the U.S. Geological Survey, taught at the University of Ohio State and presently teaches, lectures and consults , following 25 years at the helm of the Association of Ground Water Scientists and Engineers, where he also serves as editor of The Journal of Ground Water. His most recent book is McGraw-Hill's widely acclaimed Handbook of Environmental Science, Health & Technology.

    MARV HYMAN, PE, CIH,MS Chemical Engineering U.C. Berkeley, BS Caltech, has over 30 years experience in environmental engineering, alternative energy and industrial safety, and since 1994 has been working with Bechtel on remediation of soil, groundwater and tank wastes contaminated with organics, metals, and radioisotopes at Hanford, Washington. He is the author of the remediation article in the Wiley Encyclopedia of Environmental Analysis and Remediation (1998), and principal author of the ASCE Press book Groundwater and Soil Remediation: Process Design and Cost Estimating (2001). He is the remediation instructor in the continuing education programs of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, American Industrial Hygiene Association, U.C. Berkeley Extension, and Washington State University.

    TYLER E.GASS has approximately 30 years of experience as a Hydrogeologist focusing on a variety of environmental issues, as well as ground-water resource evaluation and development. Mr. Gass is a former Director of Research of the National Ground Water Association, and is a member of the U.S. Army Science Advisory Board, where he is the former Chairman of the Infrastructure and Environment Subcommittee. Mr. Gass has published numerous articles and has co-authored two textbooks on groundwater development, resource protection, and the fate and transport of chemicals in the subsurface environment. He has been an expert witness in a number of federal and state courts, and has testified on subjects related to groundwater flow, aquifer analysis, contaminant fate and transport, groundwater remediation and groundwater natural resource damages.

    WILLIAM J. SEEVERS, PE, is a hydrologist who specializes in groundwater contamination and water resources issues. He is former Chief Operating Officer, in charge of practice, at Eder Associates, Locust Valley, New York.
