Overview

As the field of environmental management moves into the future, its focus will be on reducing or eliminating waste pollution streams. Engineers, technicians, and maintenance personnel must develop proficiency and improved understanding of pollution prevention and waste control to cope with the challenges of this important area. Pollution Prevention: The Waste Management Approach to the 21st Century covers - in a thorough and clear style - the fundamentals of pollution prevention and their application to real-world problems.
The book is divided into three parts: Process and Plant Fundamentals, Pollution Prevention Principles, and Pollution Prevention Applications. Part one examines the general subject of process and plant fundamentals, equipment and calculation, process diagrams and economic considerations. Part two covers the broad subject of pollution prevention options, including chapters on source reduction, recycling, treatment methods, and ultimate disposal. Part three contains chapters devoted to specific industrial applications involving pollution prevention. The text is generously supplemented with illustrative examples.
Applying pollution prevention strategies - the most viable environmental management option of the future - offers a more cost-effective means of minimizing the generation of waste. Pollution Prevention: The Waste Management Approach to the 21st Century provides the basic principles required for understanding not only pollution prevention but also waste control.

A preventative approach to environmental management is a relatively new concept requiring attention to energy conservation and health, safety, and accident prevention issues as well as waste treatment, according to Dupont (civil and environmental engineering, Utah State U.) and two colleagues. Part I introduces definitions; conservation laws and basic principles; and plant equipment, processes, and economic considerations. The next section presents pollution prevention principles and regulations. The final part addresses applications via case studies. Includes worked and unworked problems. Appends information on units, conversion factors, and mathematical symbols; US state pollution prevention programs; environmental organizations; relevant software; and contacts in education.
