The breadth of information included in this single volume will make it the most comprehensive coverage of waste on the market. It focuses on all of the main areas including household waste (compostable material, paper, glass, textiles, household chemicals, plastic, water, e-waste), industrial and societal waste (metals, building, tires, medical battery, hazardous mining, nuclear, ocean, military, and space), and the future of landfills and incinerators. Including all the issues related to waste in one volume will help lead to comparisons, synergistic solutions, and a more informed society. In addition to a comprehensive coverage of waste, this book will offer the best ways of managing the problems through recycling, incineration, landfill and other processes.

Dan Vallero is an internationally recognized expert in the transport, chemical transformation and environmental fate of hazardous pollutants. His three decades of professional experience in hazardous waste engineering and management have included research, teaching and regulatory advice related to a wide range of human health risk and ecological issues, from global climate change to the release of hazardous products of incomplete combustion from waste incinerators to the assessment of the risks from exposures to environmental endocrine disruptors. Dr. Vallero recently established the Engineering Ethics program at Duke University. This innovative program introduces students to the complex relationships between science, technology and societal demands on the engineer. The lessons learned from the cases in this book are a fundamental part of Duke's preparation of its future engineers to address the ethical dilemmas likely to be encountered during the careers of the next generation engineers.
