Advanced Waste Treatment in the Food Processing Industry provides environmental engineers with in-depth coverage across a range of topics. Examining current conditions and future trends, the text discusses pollution sources, waste characteristics, control technologies, management strategies, facility innovations, process alternatives, costs, and effluent standards. Much of the information is supported with case histories. It delineates methodologies, technologies, and considers regional and global effects of important pollution control practices. Most importantly, it provides a focus on new developments in innovative and alternative technologies, design criteria, managerial decision methodology, and environmental conservation approaches that are specific to the food industries
