Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management by Nelson L. Nemerow and Frank J. Agardy For years, plant engineers, engineering professors, municipal engineers, EPA personnel, and other professionals have relied on the expertise of these authors in the area of industrial and hazardous waste management. This book is full of new ideas, methods, models, data, updated information, and new case histories. This latest classic reference from Nelson Nemerow and Frank Agardy is by far the most comprehensive and useful source available on the generation, treatment, and disposal of all significant industrial and hazardous wastes. Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management addresses the needs of its wide-ranging audience by dividing its coverage into four parts: Part I presents the basic information the industrial waste engineer needs to know about the environmental impact of various wastes, writing environmental impact statements, protecting streams from further pollution, calculating final treatments, testing treatment efficiency, and the influence of economic factors on waste treatment decisions. Part II explores theories and designs of waste treatment, and shows how waste can be reduced through proper operation of manufacturing plants. It ranges beyond the removal of suspended and colloidal solids to include coverage of neutralization, equalization and proportioning, removal of inorganic dissolved salts, and private contract collection and treatment. Also included is a novel paradigm for obtaining zero pollution in the future through environmentally balanced industrial complexes. Part III demonstrates waste management in action, using case studies from around the world to show theories and models successfully adapted and put into practice. All cases are based on the authors' actual experiences--the cases in Chapters 17, 19, 22, 23, and 24 have never been previously published. Part IV offers concise evaluations of all major liquid Industrial wastes, including their origins, characteristics, and acceptable treatments. Industries are classified into six categories: apparel, food processing, materials, chemicals, energy, and (in significantly extended coverage) non-point practices. Included are separate considerations of radioactive and hazardous (as opposed to conventional) waste. No waste-management professional should be without this essential volume. Focused on need-to-know information, common pitfalls, and practical solutions to all kinds of problems, Strategies of Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management is an answer source unlike any other.

Emerging and Eco Friendly Approaches for Waste Management Book Excerpt:

Rapid industrialization is a serious concern in the context of a healthy environment. With the growth in the number of industries, the waste generated is also growing exponentially. The various chemical processes operating in the manufacturing industry generate a large number of by-products, which are largely harmful and toxic pollutants and are generally discharged into the natural water bodies. Once the pollutants enter the environment, they are taken up by different life forms, and because of bio-magnification, they affect the entire food chain and have severe adverse effects on all life forms, including on human health. Although, various physico-chemical and biological approaches are available for the removal of toxic pollutants, unfortunately these are often ineffective and traditional clean up practices are inefficient. Biological approaches utilizing microorganisms (bacterial/fungi/algae), green plants or their enzymes to degrade or detoxify environmental pollutants such as endocrine disruptors, toxic metals, pesticides, dyes, petroleum hydrocarbons and phenolic compounds, offer eco- friendly approaches. Such eco-friendly approaches are often more effective than traditional practices, and are safe for both industry workers as well as environment. This book provides a comprehensive overview of various toxic environmental pollutants from a variety natural and anthropogenic sources, their toxicological effects on the environment, humans, animals and plants as well as their biodegradation and bioremediation using emerging and eco-friendly approaches (e.g. Anammox technology, advanced oxidation processes, membrane bioreactors, membrane processes, GMOs), microbial degradation (e.g. bacteria, fungi, algae), phytoremediation, biotechnology and nanobiotechnology. Offering fundamental and advanced information on environmental problems, challenges and bioremediation approaches used for the remediation of contaminated sites, it is a valuable resource for students, scientists and researchers engaged in microbiology, biotechnology and environmental sciences.

Recycling from Waste in Fashion and Textiles Book Excerpt:

The alarming level of greenhouse gases in the environment, fast depleting natural resources and the increasing level of industrial effluents, have made every single manufacturing activity come under the scrutiny of sustainability. When all kinds of waste such as clothes, furniture, carpets, televisions, shoes, paper, food wastes etc. end up in the landfill, only a few of them are naturally decomposed and thus a large majority remains as non-biodegradable. It is for this reason, efforts are concentrated to reduce the burden on earth by this waste, and as far as used textile products are concerned, there are now attempts to recycle or up-cycle. This book addresses the role of sustainability by using textile waste in fashion and textiles with respect to manufacturing, materials, as well as the economic and business challenges and opportunities it poses. This wide-ranging book comprises 19 chapters on the various topics including: Solutions for sustainable fashion and textile industry Agro and bio waste in the fashion industry Innovating fashion brands by using textile waste Waste in handloom textiles Business paradigm shifting: 21st century fashion from recycling and upcycling Utilization of natural waste for sustainable textile coloration Circular economy in fashion and textile from waste Future pathways of waste utilization for fashion Sustainable encapsulation of natural dyes from Plant waste for textiles Agro-waste applications for bio-remediation of textile effluent

Sustainable Industrial Design and Waste Management Book Excerpt:

Sustainable Industrial Design and Waste Management was inspired by the need to have a text that enveloped awareness and solutions to the ongoing issues and concerns of waste generated from industry. The development of science and technology has increased human capacity to extract resources from nature and it is only recently that industries are being held accountable for the detrimental effects the waste they produce has on the environment. Increased governmental research, regulation and corporate accountability are digging up issues pertaining to pollution control and waste treatment and environmental protection. The traditional approach for clinical waste, agricultural waste, industrial waste, and municipal waste are depleting our natural resources. The main objective of this book is to conserve the natural resources by approaching 100 % full utilization of all types of wastes by cradle – to - cradle concepts, using Industrial Ecology methodology documented with case studies. Sustainable development and environmental protection cannot be achieved without establishing the concept of industrial ecology. The main tools necessary for establishing Industrial Ecology and sustainable development will be covered in the book. The concept of “industrial ecology will help the industrial system to be managed and operated more or less like a natural ecosystem hence causing as less damage as possible to the surrounding environment. Numerous case studies allow the reader to adapt concepts according to personal interest/field Reveals innovative technologies for the conservation of natural resources The only book which provides an integrated approach for sustainable development including tools, methodology, and indicators for sustainable development
