Pollution Control and Resource Recovery : Industrial Construction and Demolition Wastes (Paperback)
About this item
Reducing and recycling Industrial Construction and Demolition (C&D) Wastes materials conserves landfill space, reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials, and can reduce overall building project expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs. Pollution Control and Resource Reuse for Industrial Construction & Demolition Wastes provides engineers with the techniques and technologies to cope with the common pollutants which 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, generation and pollution characteristics of hazardous C&D wastes. Migration potential and patterns of pollutants during random stacking and landfilling, pollution controlling approaches, are also included. Other topics included in this reference are: 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 and D waste contaminated by heavy metals, organic pollutants or those generated in earthquakes and explosion accidents
- Includes treatment process for persistent organic pollutants such as heavy metals and chemicals
- Provides sampling methods and equipment, pre-treatment and analysis, generation and pollution characteristics of common hazardous C and D wastes materials
