Description

Many well-intentioned land development projects are conceived, planned, and carried to completion in an inadequate environmental context. The unintended consequences of such projects often include contamination and degradation of streams, forests, soils, and entire natural systems. Dealing with the challenges of maintaining a decent balance between manÂ’s needs and a sustainable environment has become the province of specialized professionals and technicians trained and equipped to address the complexities of environmental contamination.

Environmental Treatment Technologies for Hazardous and Medical Wastes provides a systematic framework for analyzing the full range of outcomes that may result from many of the components of urban development and for remedying their adverse effects. The book also provides details on various waste treatment technologies for hazardous and medical wastes.

Book Contents

The book also includes a description of the technology, flow diagram and other technology specific information. With this coverage the book would be useful for the environmental scientists and engineers, scientists at the Pollution Control Boards, NGOÂ’s , hospitals and medical organizations and students of environmental engineering and sciences.
