This book is not only a good text book but also a good reference book to quickly find important concepts of hazardous waste management. Not only useful to Engineers but also to those who have to prepare talks for civic groups interested in enviromental aspects of hazardous waste management. Knowledge of engineering mathematics beneficial for working problems requiring calculations. Good resource for those desiring to formulate verbal opinions about various subjects in the field.
