Editorial Reviews

A practical handbook that presents an integrated approach to the planning, design, and management of a municipal waste management system. Some 20 industry and government experts provide the tools to design a solid waste management system capable of disposing of waste in a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible manner. Focusing on the six primary functions of an integrated system--source reduction, toxicity reduction, recycling and reuse, composting, waste- to-energy combustion, and landfilling--they explore each technology and examines its problems, costs, and legal and social ramifications. Note: CiP shows Kreith as the author. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
