Emerging Technologies in Hazardous Waste Management III


Emerging Technologies in Hazardous Waste Management III Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Describes physical and chemical technologies for treating and managing solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes. Includes coverage of soil decontamination and remediation; treatment of volatile waste compounds; and treatment of radioactive and mixed wastes. Provides an in-depth review of state-of-the-art supercritical water extraction technology. Examines in situ and ex situ technologies for solid decontamination. Presents studies of photo-assisted decomposition technologies for wastewater treatment. Provides coverage of innovative topics, including comparison of advanced oxidation processes; determination of biodegradation kinetics with respirometry and group contribution methods; and treatment of volatiles with gas-phase bioreactors.

Book News Annotation:

Based on a symposium held in Atlanta, Georgia in October 1991, this volume is both an introduction to hazardous waste treatment for the novice and a reference for the technical expert. Specialists in emerging technologies for treating and managing gaseous, liquid, and solid wastes contribute 22 chapters arranged within five sections: physical and chemical wastewater treatment, biological treatment, soil remediation and treatment, treatment of volatile compounds, and selected mixed-waste treatment applications.
