Item description for Industrial Pollution Prevention (Environmental Science and Engineering / Environmental Engineering) by Thomas T. Shen...
This book is intended for those in government, academia and industry who are interested in, or responsible for pollution prevention (P2). The second edition reflects the rapid change in pollution prevention strategies and market needs. It calls the readers attention to the concept and practices of pollution management rather than waste management only and to the understanding of pollution problems caused not only by pollutants and wastes but also by environmentally unfriendly products and services. The contents of the 16 chapters have been thoroughly revised and new chapters have been added on total environmental quality management; laws, regulations, programs and strategies; state, city and local P2 programs; education and research; P2 in the U.S. Defense Department; and sources of P2 information.
