This book attempts to define practical solutions to pesticide users' disposal problems. A major agreement must be reached on what can be done, legally and technically, to deal with the difficulties of proper pesticide-related waste disposal, and who should share in the cost of a clean environment.

In this sequel volume to ACS Symposium Series No. 422, Emerging Technologies in Hazardous Waste Management, the editors expand their coverage of the subject with contributions on air treatment, as well as a greater examination of computer applications and modelling. Twenty-one chapters are divided into four sections covering thermal treatment and abiotic emissions control, water management, biological treatment, and solid waste management. Of special interest is a presentation on the use of internal radiant energy within a gas-fired combustion chamber to maintain high combustion temperatures, a technique that appears important for the thermal destruction of many chlorinated species.

Increasing demand on industrial capacity has, as an unintended consequence, produced an accompanying increase in harmful and hazardous wastes. Derived from the second edition of the popular Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment, Waste Treatment in the Process Industries outlines the fundamentals and latest developments in waste treatment in various process industries, such as pharmaceuticals, textiles, petroleum, soap, detergent, phosphate, paper, pulp, pesticides, rubber, and power. Comprehensive in scope, it provides information that is directly applicable to daily waste management problems throughout the industry. The book contains in-depth discussions of environmental pollution sources, waste characteristics, control technologies, management strategies, facility innovations, process alternatives, costs, case histories, effluent standards, and future trends for the process industry. It includes extensive bibliographies for each type of industrial process waste treatment or practice, invaluable information to anyone who needs to trace, follow, duplicate, or improve on a specific process waste treatment practice. A quick scan of the chapters and contributors reveals the depth and breadth of the book's coverage. It provides technical and economical information on how to develop the most feasible total environmental control program that can benefit both process industry and local municipalities.

Defusing the Toxics Threat

The use of pesticides in agriculture and the discarding of industrial chemical waste into the air, soil, and water constitute two major pathways of human exposure to toxic substances. It is argued that these practices release hundreds of millions of tons of potentially hazardous substances into the environment each year. Speculation continues into the long-term consequences of the health and ecological effects of the vast majority of chemicals in use. This document addresses some of these dangers and presents strategies that are intended to reduce pesticide use in agriculture and that minimize waste generation in industry, offering cost-effective approaches to lessening the risks from toxics. The booklet is organized into sections concerned with: (1) the "shadows" of the chemical age; (2) consequences and risks; (3) breaking the pesticide habit; (4) rethinking industrial waste management; and (5) detoxifying the environment.
