"Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control (Third Edition) bridges the gap that commonly exists between the subjects of industrial chemistry and environmental chemistry. It is the only current volume to take this unified approach to the subject areas. This practical book takes a balanced view of environmental problems by considering community, municipal, power generation, industrial, and transportation impact components, and describes the use of pollutant inventories as an appropriate way to attach priorities to the regulation of discharges and the selection of omission control measures." "The topics discussed have been assembled with the needs of second year to graduate college and university students and instructors in mind with the inclusion of 175 review questions. The book also addresses the requirements of practitioners, consultants, and regulators employed in the subject fields, with over 1300 references to additional information."--BOOK JACKET.
