Overview

Provides a timely and comprehensive review of all methods of remediation of land and water contaminated by pesticides with contributions from experts in industry, government and academia.

The safe disposal of pesticide wastes is one of the most critical issues in the whole field of pesticide technology and this book covers all the main methods for reducing the concentration of pesticide waste, including incineration and destruction by micro-organisms (bioremediation). It discusses new remediation methods, pesticide production and generation of pesticide waste, focusing on the prevention of spills and accidental contamination. There is also a chapter on regulation authored by two members of the US Environment Agency.

This is a first class book of interest to anyone involved in the production, use and clean-up of pesticides.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"...this is an excellent [volume] of considerable value to all professionals involved in the production, use and regrettably the clean-up of pesticides, which are now a requisite for increasing agricultural production and yields.", , , International Journal of Environmental Studies#"... a valuable contribution for those interested in dealing with the problems of pesticide waste and soil contamination treatment. It compiles a wealth of scientific and technological information which would be tedious to obtain otherwise.", , , European Journal of Soil Science#

Booknews
Experts from multidisciplinary fields converge on one of the most critical issues in pesticide technology: the safe disposal of pesticide wastes. Fourteen chapters span the scope of the remediation problem from user and industrial standpoints, the feasibility of various disposal options, the effects of elevated pesticide concentrations on rates of soil processes, the major disposal methodologies currently in use (physical/chemical and biological processes), and innovative trends in remediation technology. Regulatory aspects are addressed in the final chapter by US Environmental Protection Agency staffers. The preface refers to this as the first volume in the series, whereas the series description and back cover denote it as vol. 2. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
