An illuminating, problem-solving approach to source area analysis, environmental chemodynamics, risk assessment, and remediation
In the newly revised second edition of Hazardous Wastes: Assessment and Remediation, a team of distinguished researchers delivers a foundational and comprehensive treatment of all aspects of hazardous waste problems. The book offers two sections--one on assessment and the following on remediation--while exploring topics crucial to the study of environmental science and engineering at the senior or master's level.
This latest edition includes a new emphasis on the chemistry of emerging contaminants, including perfluorinated compounds, 1,4-dioxane, methyl tert-butyl ether, and personal care products. It also offers updated data on contaminant Threshold Limit Value, Reference Dose, Slope Factor, Reference Concentration, and Inhalation Unit Risk. New remediation chapters also provide many design problems, incorporating economic analyses and the selection of various design alternatives. Approximately 200 new end-of-chapter problems--with solutions--have been added as well.
Readers will also find:
* A thorough introduction to hazardous wastes, including discussion of pre-regulatory disposal and hazardous waste legislation
* Comprehensive discussions of common hazardous wastes, including their nomenclature, industrial uses, and disposal histories
* In-depth explorations of partitioning, sorption, and exchange at surfaces, as well as volatilization
* Extensive descriptions of the concepts of hazardous waste toxicology and quantitative toxicology
Perfect for senior- and masters-level college courses in hazardous wastes in Environmental Science, Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering, or Chemical Engineering programs, Hazardous Wastes: Assessment and Remediation will also earn a place in the libraries of professional environmental scientists and engineers.
