Reviews

"This book is an excellent practitioner’s guide to a wide range of issues that professionals may encounter with hazardous waste in a variety of environmental situations. The author has incorporated the latest developments and science in hazardous waste, including identification, monitoring, mitigation, cross-media transfer, management, and control of hazardous waste in an easy to read resource book. Environmental issues and impacts affecting the land, water, and air are dressed in depth. There are many case studies used throughout the book to illustrate successes and failures in this critical environmental protection area. Project costs are included where available to provide an estimate of the economic impact of cleanup efforts and options. It is particularly applicable to professionals and others that need a practical, working handbook to address the wide range of field conditions that may be encountered at hazardous waste sites. The book will also be a very useful resource for students preparing for a career in environmental protection and hazardous waste management."

"In this latest book by Subijoy Dutta, P.E on Municipal, Industrial and Medical Waste management, author has exhaustively dealt with all the pertinent issues. Of particular interest to me as a medical practitioner is Chapter 14, where special emphasis is placed on COVID related wastes and their management.Wide readership will justify author’s labor and passion that has gone into this creative book."
