This Handbook is an essential tool for plant managers, process engineers, environmental consultants, and site remediation specialists that focuses on practices for handling a broad range of industrial solid waste problems. In addition to equipment and process options, the author presents information on waste minimization practices that can be used in conjunction with or can provide alternatives to equipment and process investments. Environmental cost accounting measures and energy-efficient technologies are provided.
INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES and WASTE STREAM MANAGEMENT This book provides environmental technology students with a quick, enjoyable way to master the knowledge and skills needed to develop and implement successful, cost-effective industrial pollution control programs, especially when used in coordination with the Industrial Processes and Waste Stream Management video series produced by INTELECOM Intelligent Telecommunications.
The truth about the climate crisis is an inconvenient one that means we are going to have to change the way we live our lives. Our climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it has become a true planetary emergency and we must recognise that we are facing a crisis. So why is it that some leaders seem not to hear the clarion warnings? Are they resisting the truth because they know that the moment they acknowledge it, they will face a moral imperative to act? Is it simply more convenient to ignore the warnings?
In this volume the authors offer a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of waste disposal and management. They illustrate these aspects using numerous practical examples. They have included a comparison of regulations in the United States, Canada and Japan, as well as a review of United States environmental legislation - both Federal and State - and a variety of case studies such as Recycling Hawaii and barge wastes.
The deceptively simple supermarket choice echoed in the title symbolizes the dilemma of a society on a collision course with the planet's life-support systems. Do we clearcut forests, process pulp, and bleach it with chlorine to make paper bags? Or do we make a pact with demon hydrocarbon, refining ancient sunlight into handy plastics?
What do you do with your old mobile phone? Where can you take your old medicines? Which plastic is recyclable? What happens to the stuff you recycle? This easy-to-use guide has the answers to all your recycling questions. Use its A-Z listing of everyday household items to see how you can recycle most of your unwanted things, do your bit for the planet, and maybe make a bit of money while you're at it.
This is an expert overview on the topic of tyre recycling. It summarises current practices and the factors that have contributed to their growth and efficacy as viable, economically and environmentally sound methods of dealing with post-consumer tyres. The primary area of study of this report is the EU, but reports from the US have also been cited. Statistics from the EU markets, which illustrate changes in the industry since the inception of the European Tyre Recycling Association a decade ago are incorporated.
Resource recovery and recycling from millions of tons of wastes produced from industrial activities is a continuing challenge for environmental engineers and researchers. Demand for conservation of resources, reduction in the quantity of waste and sustainable development with environmental control has been growing in every part of the world. Waste Processing and Recycling in Mineral and Metallurgical Industries brings together the currently used techniques of waste processing and recycling, their applications with practical examples and economic potentials of the processes.
This technology transfer handbook describes recycling equipment and technology for municipal solid waste (MSE) at material recovery facilities (MRFs). It gives guidance on what technically can be done and what material specifications can be achieved.
The use of plastic materials has seen a massive increase in recent years, and generation of plastic wastes has grown proportionately. Recycling of these wastes to reduce landfill disposal is problematic due to the wide variation in properties and chemical composition among the different types of plastics. Feedstock recycling is one of the alternatives available for consideration, and Feedstock Recycling of Plastic Wastes looks at the conversion of plastic wastes into valuable chemicals useful as fuels or raw materials.
