●IMPROVED STRUCTURE MORE ACCURATELY CORRESPONDS WITH SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES TODAY. The authors have carefully revised the order of presentation and chapters within this edition to more closely reflect the hierarchy of solid waste management, which includes reduce, reuse, recycle, and recovery.
●NEW GLOBAL FOCUS OFFERS EXPANDED VIEWPOINTS ON THIS WORLD-WIDE ISSUE. Students examine the problems and challenges inherent in solid waste management both within the U.S. and on a global scale.
●ENGINEER-CENTERED TEXT IS WRITTEN SPECIFICALLY FOR ENGINEERING STUDENTS. This is the first textbook on solid waste engineering written exclusively by engineers to provide a unique, practical focus that's designed for today's engineering students.
●FOCUS ON CONTEMPORARY ISSUES EMPHASIZES TODAY'S MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION. This edition's content features up-to-date technology on solid-waste collection, processing, conversion, and disposal. You will also find a timely chapter on current issues that reflects emerging topics that are relevant in today's industry.
●CONTENT INTEGRATES ENGINEERING ECONOMICS AND ETHICS. Students learn how engineering economics applies to solid-waste engineering. The book also includes a focus on ethical considerations in the design of solid-waste management systems.
●DESIGN PROBLEM ENABLES INTEGRATED LONG-TERM PRACTICE. This edition includes a supplementary design problem that you can use as a semester-long project with weekly submissions of reports and a final compilation of an assimilated full engineering report.
●CHAPTER ON ZERO-WASTE HIGHLIGHTS THIS CURRENT ISSUE. Students learn how Zero Waste management and planning approaches emphasize waste prevention so no trash is sent to landfills or incinerators.
●FOCUS ON TECHNOLOGY FEATURES THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN THE INDUSTRY. Students gain a first-hand look at the use of today's technology in solid-waste collection, processing, conversion and disposal.
