Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive evaluation of the environmental polluting potential of fertilizer production processes. The fertilizer industry is approached on the basis of major end-products and by-products from the point of view of environmental pollutants of the atmosphere, water, and soil. The volume presents solutions capable of eliminating or diminishing pollution and covers methods of converting effluents and by-products to useful products where possible. The latest environmental protection technology is presented in a manner that can be used in planning, renovation, or operation of facilities, and in the remediation of discontinued facilities.
