Here is a revolutionary solution to problems of industrial waste management by creating a system of environmentally balanced "industrial complexes" in which groups of industrial plants consume each other′s waste not only benefiting the environment, but also significantly reducing production costs.
Providing a clear introduction to this novel approach, Zero Pollution for Industry goes right to the heart of what environmental scientists, engineers, and administrators grapple with these days. It takes pollution prevention to the next level, past current reduction and reuse methods, and anticipates government regulations and societal trends that would factor environmental damage into production costs.
Also suitable as a companion volume for traditional industrial waste management texts at the graduate level, this thought–provoking book:
- Covers hot new material under consideration by professionals and policymakers, including the EPA and the NSF
- Discusses the basics of waste minimization and waste reuse as well as zero–pollution industrial complexing
- Presents detailed examples of how complexes in different industries could be structured
- Describes how to change industrial plant design practices to prevent pollution
- Teaches innovative production techniques for environmental protection to future engineers and administrators
- Shows how to plan for a pollution–free environment from an administrative point of view
Concise and uncluttered, this book is an eye–opener for anyone who would like to work toward a world free of industrial pollution in our fragile environment.
