The papers presented at the 51st Purdue Industrial Waste Conference have been divided into the following sections:

  • pollution prevention

  • site remediation

  • physical and chemical processes

  • odor and VOC control

  • solidification, foundry, and combustion residues

  • biological processes

  • respirometry and effluent toxicity

  • industrial waste case histories

    Each chapter contains a multitude of figures and tables illustrating the concepts discussed as well as extensive references for further study.

  • Reviews

    "…The most authoritative volume on industrial waste problems…the most complete coverage of the field assembled…no library is complete without this book…"

    - WEF Journal

    "There should be considerable interest in this volume. It gave me a much better appreciation of redox cycles and acid volatile sulfides."
