Beschreibung:
The costs associated with managing and legally disposing the billions of tons of industrial waste generated annually in the United States have been increasing rapidly over the past decade. The basic premise of pollution prevention is that avoiding the generation of waste/pollutants can often be the more cost-effective and less damaging to the environment that controlling or disposing of pollutants once they are formed. This book presents the concepts, methodology, and technology essential in the development of industrial pollution prevention strategies.

Index.
This timely text offers coverage of pollution prevention fundamentals, featuring examples and case studies drawn from the chemical process industries. Topics are presented on three different levels-macro, meso, and micro. The book s multifaceted approach provides a complete picture of current waste minimization theory and practice.

Macroscale
Comprehensive analysis of the flow of materials in the United States, from natural resource extraction to consumer product disposal
Overview of waste generation and management for different pollutant types
Assessment of pollution prevention opportunities using industrial ecology and product life cycle frameworks

Mesoscale
Detailed coverage of pollution prevention in chemical manufacturing processes
Waste audits, emission inventories, flow sheet analysis, and many other important tools
Waste reduction for unit operations, techniques for measuring economic benefits of pollution prevention, and more

Microscale
Case studies of reaction pathway analysis and material design methods

Complete with case studies that give the material a real-world edge, plus worked examples to reinforce learning, this text is valuable to both advanced students and practitioners of chemical and civil engineering.
