  • Hazardous and Radioactive Waste Treatment Technologies Handbook

    Many books have been written on hazardous waste and nuclear waste separately, but none have combined the two subjects into one single-volume resource. Hazardous and Radioactive Waste Treatment Technologies Handbook covers the technologies, characteristics, and regulation of both hazardous chemical wastes and radioactive wastes. It provides an ...

  • Evaluating And Selecting The Best Medical Waste Treatment

    This document will provide the criteria for consideration and analysis in the process of evaluating and selecting the best or most viable alternative medical waste treatment technology for a particular site-specific application. Over the last 15 years, it has been particularly difficult for facilities to plan and make the best, most cost-effective ...

  • Medical Waste Auto Claves: Not Just A Lot Of Hot Air (PDS)

    Our industry has seen the development of 'alternative medical waste treatment technologies', thanks in part to stringent air quality standards along with public sentiment opposed to incineration, resulting in a decline in use of on-site medical waste incinerators. Steam sterilization has emerged as an acceptable method of treatment prior to ...

  • Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes

    Covers unit processes common to drinking water, wastewater, and any water requiring treatment Presents theory and practice for each unit process and key factors in development Examines uncommon issues that aid in applications principles, such as submerged flow for a Parshall flume and Henry’s law constants for 12 gases at different temperatures ...

  • Wastes & Their Treatment; A Directory

    This directory is a joint publication of the UNEP Industry and Environment Office and UNEP's INFOTERRA. The purpose of the directory is to: direct users to sources of information on wastes and their treatment; to provide a select bibliography on the subject. Technologies in waste treatment are constantly evolving. UNEP will revise and expand this ...

  • Emerging Contaminants from Industrial and Municipal Waste

    The group of non-regulated contaminants termed 'emerging contaminants' mainly comprises products used in large quantities in everyday life, such as human and veterinary pharmaceuticals, personal care products, surfactants and surfactant residues, plasticizers and various industrial additives. The occurrence of 'emerging contaminants' in ...

  • Emerging Contaminants from Industrial and Municipal Waste

    The group of non-regulated contaminants termed “emerging contaminants” mainly comprises products used in large quantities in everyday life, such as human and veterinary pharmaceuticals, personal care products, surfactants and surfactant residues, plasticizers and various industrial additives. The occurrence of “emerging contaminants” in ...

  • Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems

    Although initially based purely on environmental principles of reuse and recycling, natural waste treatment systems proved to have economic advantages over mechanical systems in many cases, being less expensive to build and operate as well as requiring less energy. Thus, natural waste treatment methods reemerged even as advanced wastewater ...

  • Environmental Infrastructure Management

    Environmental issues continue to burden governments and economies throughout the post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the newly independent states of the former Soviet Union. Severe environmental degradation is endemic to the region, the existing environmental infrastructure is often inadequate, significant new ...

  • Waste Treatment in the Metal Manufacturing, Forming, Coating, and Finishing Industries

    Waste Treatment in the Metal Manufacturing, Forming, Coating, and Finishing Industries provides all of the necessary technical information on industrial and hazardous waste treatment. Focusing on new developments in innovative and alternative technologies, it offers in-depth coverage of environmental pollution sources, waste characteristics, ...

  • Living Labs

    As Higher Education Institutions increasingly strive to find the most impactful way of conducting innovative education and research, many are initiating Living Labs programmes. The objective of a Living Lab programme is to establish a platform where people from different stakeholder groups can easily and effectively collaborate. While Living Labs ...

  • Waste Treatment in the Food Processing Industry

    Many standard industrial waste treatment texts sufficiently address a few major technologies for conventional in-plant environmental control strategies in the food industry. But none explore the complete range of technologies with a focus on new developments in innovative and alternative technology, design criteria, effluent standards, managerial ...

  • Proceedings of the Twenty-seventh Annual International Conference on Thermal Treatment Technologies (IT3)

    This May 12-16, 2008 conference, held in Montreal, QC, provided a forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art technical information on thermal treatment technologies. The invited and contributed papers in this proceedings CD-ROM address approaches to safely managing waste streams amenable to thermal treatment processes, and evaluate their ...

  • Safe Management of Wastes from Health-care Activities

    This handbook provides the first comprehensive guide to the safe and efficient handling, treatment, and disposal of all categories of hazardous waste generated by health-care activities. Although the major emphasis is on waste generated by hospitals, guidelines and advice are also relevant to wastes produced in health centres, research facilities, ...
