Presenting effective, practicable strategies modeled from ultramodern technologies and framed by the critical insights of 78 field experts, this vastly expanded Second Edition offers 32 chapters of industry- and waste-specific analyses and treatment methods for industrial and hazardous waste materials-from explosive wastes to landfill leachate to wastes produced by the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Key additional chapters cover means of monitoring waste on site, pollution prevention, and site remediation.
Including a timely evaluation of the role of biotechnology in contemporary industrial waste management, the Handbook reveals sound approaches and sophisticated technologies for treating
This state-of-the-art Second Edition is required reading for pollution control, environmental, chemical, civil, sanitary, and industrial engineers; environmental scientists; regulatory health officials; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.

"New subjects are presented in detail for the first time in any industrial waste treatment book. … The team of contributors is of high scientific level and demonstrates that special efforts were made to invite experts to contribute chapters in their own areas of expertise. … The book is to be used as a reference … for professors, students, and researchers … . The extensive bibliographies … should be invaluable to managers and researchers who need to improve on a specific industrial waste treatment practice."
- Environmental Engineering and Management Journal, March 2005, Vol. 4, No. 1
"Each chapter provides a thorough and comprehensive review of the waste management issue at hand. … Chapters are well-written and flow well. The extensive bibliographies for each industrial waste treatment practice should be valuable to university students, environmental managers, and scientists. … [T]he editors did a fine job in compiling and reviewing a wide range of papers."
- Journal of Environmental Quality, March/April 2005
"An excellent resource for environmental managers, this edition, expanded to 32 chapters from the original edition, describes methodologies for the treatment of wastes … This handbook is intended both as a reference book for environmental professionals and as a college text that allows instructors to choose the specific industrial waste categories they may want to cover; it will also be valuable in engineers' or scientists' personal libraries. Summing Up: Highly recommended."
