"structured so that the logical progression of understanding, selection, and implementation of innovative technologies follows smoothly from one phase to another." ?Dr. Stephen James, Innovative Technology Coordinator, U. S. EPA Office of Research and Development
O?Brien & Gere?s landmark 1988 Hazardous Waste Site Remediation, also published by Van Nostrand Reinhold, gave us an excellent introduction to a critical issue. Their current book is a much needed, in-depth examination of recent innovations for hazardous waste site remediation, that will give you a comprehensive understanding of today?s technology. Innovative Engineering Technologies For Hazardous Waste Remediation includes innovative applications of state-of-the-art chemical, physical, and thermal technologies as well as established processes. You?ll review the principles behind their development and see examples of successful applications. The authors not only explain the new processes but also critically analyze when and where they apply and don?t apply. In addition, they suggest ways to overcome some of the barriers to implementing innovative technologies. O?Brien & Gere?s unique approach unites scientific and management concerns. The authors stress real-world, long-term solutions based on such legislation as the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), and RCRA. Whether you?re a member of an environmental consulting firm, or a manager, engineer, or student, you?ll find this book to be the authoritative source on the latest technologies for hazardous waste remediation. The O?Brien & Gere Companies 1945?1995...a foundation for the future.
