This handbook is intended primarily for engineers, industrial hygienists, health and safety officers, and plant engineers and managers, although some material may be of interest to lawyers, the news media, and regulatory officials. The authors' aim is to offer the reader a historical perspective on pollution problems and solutions, and to provide an introduction to the specialized literature in this and related areas. After an introduction to regulatory issues, international effects of pollution, and sources of pollutants, sections devoted to specific types of pollution such as air pollution, wastewaters, and radioactive and hazardous waste are presented. Also included are discussions of the issues faced by management, processes for pollution control and waste treatment, risk assessment, and quality standards. Annotation c.
