Pollution Control and Resource Recovery

Book Description

Pollution Control and Resource Recovery: Industrial Construction and Demolition Wastes provides engineers with the techniques and technologies to cope with the common pollutants that are persistent in C&D waste.

Dedicated to pollution control and resource reuse of C&D wastes, this book fully describes sampling methods and equipment, pre-treatment and analysis, and the generation and pollution characteristics of hazardous C&D wastes. Migration potential and patterns of pollutants during random stacking, landfilling, and pollution controlling approaches are also included.

Other topics included in this reference include source identification, classified separation and enrichment, site monitoring and evaluation, heavy metal stabilization and solidification, organic matter degradation, dust controlling, clean and high value utilization of recycled aggregate, and reuse and risk assessment.

  • Covers industrial C&D waste contaminated by heavy metals, organic pollutants, and those generated in earthquakes and explosion accidents
  • Includes treatment process for persistent organic pollutants, such as heavy metals
  • Provides sampling methods and equipment, pre-treatment and analysis, generation, and pollution characteristics of common hazardous C&D waste materials
