Harrison / Hester Waste Issues: Four-Volume Set

Waste has always been an issue for mankind, and the approaches to dealing with waste have their own environmental consequences. Today waste is seen as potential resource, especially for the recovery of rare earth elements.

Waste as a Resource (2013, ISBN 978-1-84973-668-8)

This volume examines the potential resource available from several waste streams, both domestic and industrial. Opportunities for exploiting waste are discussed, along with their environmental and economic considerations. Landfill remains an unavoidable solution in some circumstances, and the current situation regarding this is also presented. Other chapters focus on mine waste, the recovery of fertilisers, and the growing potential for compost.

Electronic Waste Management (2008, ISBN 978-0-85404-112-1)

Electronic waste contains toxic and carcinogenic compounds, which can pose a risk to the environment. However, if handled correctly, electronic waste presents a valuable source of secondary raw materials. The European Union has implemented the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE Directive) to tackle this growing problem. This book discusses the directive and examines current legislation in the USA and other parts of the world.

Environmental and Health Impact of Solid Waste Management Activities (2002, ISBN 978-0-85404-285-2)

This book, written by international experts, discusses the various waste disposal options that are available (landfill, incineration, composting, recycling) and then reviews their impact on the environment, and particularly on human health. Comprehensive and highly topical, Environmental and Health Impact of Solid Waste Management Activities will make a strong contribution to scientific knowledge in the area, and will be of value to scientists and policy-makers in particular.

Waste Treatment and Disposal (1995, ISBN 978-0-85404-210-4)

Waste Treatment and Disposal examines the environmental impact of sewage and industrial effluent treatment on inland and coastal waters, in the atmosphere and on land. It also looks into current practice in the design, engineering, operation and control of landfill sites, and the effect of changes in regulatory policy. A wide range of waste management practices result in atmospheric discharges and this book reviews the localized impacts and mitigation of the discharge and the regulatory framework within which waste management has to operate.

This is a print only set.
