Book Description. This book examines how chemistry, chemical processes, and transformations are used for pollution prevention and control. Pollution prevention reduces or eliminates pollution at the source, whereas pollution control involves destroying, reducing, or managing pollutants that cannot be eliminated at the source. Get this from a library! Pollution prevention for chemical processes. [David T Allen; Kirsten Sinclair Rosselot] -- As industrial waste becomes an increasingly important, and expensive, issue, manufacturers are looking for ways to decrease the generation of waste. This reference looks at . This timely text offers coverage of pollution prevention fundamentals, featuring examples and case studies drawn from the chemical process industries. Topics are presented on three different levels-macro, meso, and micro. The books multifaceted approach provides a complete picture of current waste minimization theory and practice.

"This book examines how chemistry, chemical processes, and transformations are used for pollution prevention and control. Pollution prevention reduces or eliminates pollution at the source, whereas pollution control involves destroying, reducing, or managing pollutants that cannot be eliminated at . EPA`s Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory (RREL) has a research program to support the 33/50 Program. The 33/50 Program is a voluntary pollution prevention initiative to reduce national releases and off-site transfers to the environment of 17 toxic chemicals. The Handbook of Air Pollution Prevention and Control provides a concise overview of the latest technologies for managing industrial air pollution in petrochemical, oil and gas, and allied industries. Detailed material on equipment selection, sizing, and troubleshooting operations is provided along with practical design methodology. The authors of this book, both veterans of DuPont’s in-house waste reduction team, have put together a “how-to” guide for locating and implementing the best pollution prevention strategies for particular manufacturing processes. The book codifies elements of fundamental pollution prevention knowledge that are “easily understood and.

Pollution prevention (P2) is any practice that reduces, eliminates, or prevents pollution at its source. P2, also known as "source reduction," is the ounce-of-prevention approach to waste management. Reducing the amount of pollution produced means less waste to control, treat, or dispose of. Chemical Processes for Pollution Prevention and Control by Paul Mac Berthouex, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. Pollution Prevention for Chemical Processes por David T. Allen, , disponible en Book Depository con envío gratis. The book concludes with a chapter contributed by the editors which discusses the educational aspects of pollution prevention. It is necessary for future generations of engineers to be trained to design processes that are inherently environmentally benign.
