During the last two decades, the environmental pollution regulations have undergone a vast change. Attempts have been made to refine the conventional technologies and to develop new technologies to meet increasingly more stringent environmental quality criteria. The challenge that one faces today is to meet these stringent requirements in an environmentally acceptable and cost effective manner.
The present book addresses the application of the state-of-the-art technology to the solutions to todays problems in industrial effluent pollution control and environmental protection. The highlight of this book is the inclusion of the salient features of process modifications and other important methods and techniques for the minimization of wastes. The chapter on process modification for waste minimization provides new technical features and tools, latest technologies and techniques, and other industrial operations. Besides, the text covers the role of an environmental engineer in the methodology for making pollution control decisions.
KEY FEATURES :
Includes numerous self-explanatory tabular and diagrammatic representations.
Presents pollution problems of few chemical and processing industries.
Provides case studies on environmental pollution problems and their prevention.
Analyzes thoroughly the planning and strategies of environmental protection.
Designed as a textbook for the undergraduate students of civil and chemical engineering, this book will also be useful to the postgraduate students of environmental science and engineering.
