Description : Waste management is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, aesthetics or amenity. Waste management is also carried out to reduce the materials' effect on the environment and to recover resources from them. Waste management can involve solid, liquid or gaseous substances, with different methods and fields of expertise for each. Waste management practices differ for developed and developing nations, for urban and rural areas, and for residential and industrial, producers. Management for non-hazardous residential and institutional waste in metropolitan areas is usually the responsibility of local government authorities, while management for non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste is usually the responsibility of the generator. This book concentrates on the newest research in the field.

Description : This book analyzes the status quo concerning waste generation and management systems in Thailand and other developing countries with similar problems. It addresses municipal, electronic, industrial and hazardous wastes, as well as management instruments, and key factors shaping the progress of waste management as a whole. The book highlights lessons learnt from various successful efforts to overcome these problems in Thailand, and offers recommendations for promoting sustainable waste management systems in Thailand and other countries with similar backgrounds in the future. These include the introduction of a polluter-pay concept, incentive systems for recycling and reusing, and promoting environmental education and awareness in key sectors.

Description : A program for calculating speciation of elements in natural waters was adapted for use in this program. A public domain program, WATEQ4F, written in Fortran was selected. This program accesses a single input file and produces a single output file. Thereby, data obtained from the lysimeters can be manipulated to infer chemical species concentrations and the mineral phases present in the column environment. The original program was converted from Fortran to C and tested in DOS using WATEQ4F test case one. The result was modified to run under Windows 3.0/3.1 with menus with items and input screens, using Borland C++ v3.1. This program was debugged with all four test cases and is now called WATEQ to differentiate it from the 4F(Fortran) version.
