Title: Standard handbook of hazardous waste treatment and disposal

Abstract

The major environmental issue for industrial countries throughout the 70s and 80s has been the management of hazardous wastes. This issue has manifested itself in the form of two questions: how to prevent environmental deterioration caused by the generation of hazardous wastes, and how to effectively clean up the problems caused by past examples of improper disposal. Both of these questions are complex, depending for resolution on many social and technical factors. This handbook has been developed to be used as a reference book for engineers, industrial managers, government officials, researchers, teachers, and other involved with the management and disposal of hazardous chemical wastes. Subjects covered include: laws and regulations; hazardous-waste characteristics quantities, and treatment capacities; hazardous waste topics and issues; special hazardous wastes; waste minimization and recycling; hazardous-waste recovery processes; physical and chemical treatment; thermal processes; biological processes; land storage and disposal; comprehensive hazardous-waste treatment facilities; remedial-action techniques and technology; sampling and analysis techniques for hazardous waste; and engineering considerations. Separate abstracts have been prepared for 60 chapters in this book for inclusion in the appropriate data bases.
