Environmental laws and legislationEnvironmental impact assessment Prevention, treatment, and management of air pollutionWastewater management, with detailed technologies for the removal of specific contaminants, presented in a handy, alphabetical guideGroundwater and storm water pollutant managementSolid waste management, including tomorrow's incineration technologyHazardous waste disposal and management; toxic and radioactive waste site managementThe Environmental Engineers' Handbook recognizes the integrated nature of our environment and addresses it as such; though each section addresses a specific area, all the sections are interlinked by extensive cross-referencing and the subject index. Taking a global approach, Editor David H.F. Liu gathered nearly 100 industrial consultants, engineering managers, researchers, professors, and lawyers from all continents to coauthor the most comprehensive handbook ever published on the prevention and management of pollution.
Protecting the global environment is a single-minded goal for all of us. Environmental engineers take this goal to task, meeting the needs of society with technical innovations. Revised, expanded, and fully updated to meet the needs of today's engineer working in industry or the public sector, the Environmental Engineers' Handbook, Second Edition is a single source of current information. It covers in depth the interrelated factors and principles that affect our environment and how we have dealt with them in the past, are dealing with them today, and how we will deal with them in the future. This stellar reference addresses the ongoing global transition in cleaning up the remains of abandoned technology, the prevention of pollution created by existing technology, and the design of future zero emission technology.

"Beginning with a refreshing environmental philosophy in the preface, its strengths include an excellent section on environmental assessment, a pollution prevention section that a chemical engineer would appreciate, sound fundamentals of solid waste, detailed hydrology/groundwater pollution topics, and nearly 500 pages dedicated to wastewater... Overall, important and useful for any engineer and engineering student, and readable enough for anyone who is interested in environmental technology."
