This book is a well organised treatise on identification and measurement of dioxins and furan in the environment. It focuses on their source, fate, behaviour, analytical techniques for measurement, and removal/control methods. Although there are numerous publications that address this subject, rarely are prevention and control concepts considered together in a single volume. This book provides a tool for today's environmental researchers by focusing on an integrated approach to managing environmental pollution problems due to dioxins and furans. The overall objective of this book is not simply to provide a general reference, but to serve as a resource for developing approaches to managing environmental pollution problems due to dioxins and furans.
Introduction. Source and Formation of Dioxins and Furans. Global Contamination and Movement of Dioxins and Furans in Environment. Health Effects of Dioxins and Furans. Analytical Method for Dioxins and Furans. Development of Removal Techniques for Dioxins and Furans. References.
