Hazardous Waste Treatment and Disposal Manual from C.H.I.P.S.

Standard Handbook of Hazardous Waste Treatment and Disposal
Second Edition
edited by Harry M. Freeman

Recognized since 1988 as the #1 technical reference in the field, this extensively revised edition arms you with updated and expanded coverage of all facets of waste management.

Completely updated and featuring 50% more information, the Second Edition provides you with most comprehensive and current information now available on hazardous waste management, site cleanup, and treatment alternatives. All of the chapters retained from the First Edition have been thoroughly revised and updated, nd 30 new chapters offer you state-of-the-art coverage of many management problems and opportunities.

You'll also find the latest information on:

  • new and proposed federal hazardous waste legislation
  • a greater emphasis on waste minimization and pollution prevention techniques
  • and expanded coverage of leading-edge treatment disposal and remediation technologies
Here, in one volume, are answers to virtually any question you might have on the laws, issues, strategies, and technologies related to the generation, management, treatment, and disposal of hazardous waste.
