Handbook Of Solid Waste Management

In a world where waste incinerators are not an option and landfills are at over capacity, cities are hard pressed to find a solution to the problem of what to do with their solid waste. Handbook of Solid Waste Management, 2/e offers a solution. This handbook offers an integrated approach to the planning, design, and management of economical and environmentally responsible solid waste disposal system. Let twenty industry and government experts provide you with the tools to design a solid waste management system capable of disposing of waste in a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible manner. Focusing on the six primary functions of an integrated system--source reduction, toxicity reduction, recycling and reuse, composting, waste- to-energy combustion, and landfilling--they explore each technology and examine its problems, costs, and legal and social ramifications.

Solid waste management is a rapidly revolving field and one cannot rely on older editions of text/hand books. Laws and regulations, not just federal and municipal, but worldwide as well are being legislated routinely. Landfill technology must be improved to control leachate and methane;implications of 'high tech' waste from electronics must be recognized as never before; incineration can be promising if proper containment of pollution, and reasonable costs can be implemented; separation technologies to distinguish different color of glass, grades of paper, types of metals and plastics need to be fully developed for use in recycling faciltities. And this handbook is the best source for a novice solid waste professional.

I am currently enrolled in a solid and hazardous waste course at my University. The book has been a tremendous source of information, and well worth the investment.

must have for the PE Environmental exam. It had the answers!
