Readers gain the knowledge to address the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by global urban societies with SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, 3E. While the authors prepare readers to deal with issues, such as regulations and legislation, the main emphasis throughout the book is on mastering solid waste engineering principles. The book first explains the basic principles of the field and then demonstrates through worked examples how readers can apply these principles in real world settings. Readers learn to think reflectively and logically about the problems and solutions in today's solid waste engineering.

SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING addresses the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by our urban society. While the authors discuss issues such as regulations and legislation, their main emphasis is on solid waste engineering principles. They maintain their focus on principles by first explaining the basic principles of the field, then demonstrating how these principles are applied in real world settings through worked examples. By using this book as part of a graduate or advanced undergraduate course students will emerge being able to think reflectively and logically about the problems and solutions in solid waste engineering.

A rigorous and in-depth approach to environmental systems and processes Concern over environmental changes resulting from oversubscription and exploitation of Earth's resources is mounting. Acid rains from power generation and industrial process emissions to the atmosphere, contamination of water resources by spills and discharges of hazardous chemicals, the greenhouse and global warming effects of carbon dioxide generated by consumption of organic fuels, and the depletion of ecosystem stabilizers such as oxygen in lakes and streams overfertilized by human wastes; these are a few of the considerations facing environmental engineers and scientists today. These are complex and confounding processes and phenomena, and their effects vary widely among the virtually limitless number of environmental systems and subsystems on Earth. Environmental Systems and Processes: Principles, Modeling, and Design is the first book to explain that, although environmental systems are virtually limitless in number, change is controlled by a relatively small set of fundamental processes. Written by one of the initiators and foremost proponents of the "first principles" approach to environmental system characterization and problem solving, this informative volume details how three fundamental issues lie at the base of every environmental process; i.e., the amount and form of available energy, the rate at which that energy can be exercised, and the configuration and dynamics of the system in which the process occurs. The author demonstrates how the mastering of relatively few fundamental principles can provide the reader with the tools necessary to solve a broad range of environmental problems. Topics discussed in Environmental Systems and Processes: Principles, Modeling, and Design include: fluid flow and mass transport; passive and reactive interphase mass transfer; elementary and complex process rates; ideal, hybrid, and nonideal system modeling and design; and multiphase and interfacial process dynamics and design. The unique and highly effective format of presenting several simple but essential fundamentals first, followed by detailed illustrative examples and explanations of how these principles describe various complex specific environmental systems and processes, makes Environmental Systems and Processes: Principles, Modeling, and Design a requisite for environmental sciences and engineering classrooms, and a staple for the bookshelves of all environmental professionals.

It is estimated that literally billions of residents in urban and peri-urban areas of Africa, Asia, and Latin America are served by onsite sanitation systems (e.g. various types of latrines and septic tanks). Until recently, the management of faecal sludge from these onsite systems has been grossly neglected, partially as a result of them being considered temporary solutions until sewer-based systems could be implemented. However, the perception of onsite or decentralized sanitation technologies for urban areas is gradually changing, and is increasingly being considered as long-term, sustainable options in urban areas, especially in low- and middle-income countries that lack sewer infrastructures. This is the first book dedicated to faecal sludge management. It compiles the current state of knowledge of the rapidly evolving field of faecal sludge management, and presents an integrated approach that includes technology, management, and planning based on Sandecs 20 years of experience in the field. Faecal Sludge Management: Systems Approach for Implementation and Operation addresses the organization of the entire faecal sludge management service chain, from the collection and transport of sludge, and the current state of knowledge of treatment options, to the final end use or disposal of treated sludge. The book also presents important factors to consider when evaluating and upscaling new treatment technology options. The book is designed for undergraduate and graduate students, and engineers and practitioners in the field who have some basic knowledge of environmental and/or wastewater engineering. Contents: The Global Situation; Faecal Sludge Quantification, Characterisation and Treatment Objectives; Treatment Mechanisms; Methods and Means for Collection and Transport of Faecal Sludge; Overview of Treatment Technologies; Settling-Thickening Tanks; Unplanted Drying Beds; Planted Drying Beds; Co-treatment of Faecal Sludge in Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants; Enduse of Treatment Products; Operation, Maintenance and Monitoring of Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant; Institutional Frameworks for Faecal Sludge Management; Financial Transfers and Responsibility in Faecal Sludge Management Chains; Assessment of the Initial Situation; Stakeholder Analysis; Stakeholder Engagement; Planning Integrated Faecal Sludge Management Systems; The Way Forward.

Developed as a reference for transport phenomena courses, this completely revised second edition of Environmental Transport Processes provides a readable and approachable treatment of environmental systems. The text features a unique combination of material from different fields (mass transport, kinetics, wastewater treatment, unit processes) and includes pertinent literature not available in any other texts. Rich with examples and problems to help reinforce students? learning, the updated edition addresses new and emerging topics, such as non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs), the subject of aggregates, and biofilm kinetic models merged with mass transport concepts.

This text provides an understanding of the relationship between structure, processing, and properties of materials. By selecting the appropriate topics from this wealth of material, instructors can emphasize materials, provide a general overview, concentrate on mechanical behavior, or focus on physical properties. Since the book has more material than is needed for a one-semester course, students will also have a useful reference for subsequent courses in manufacturing, materials, design, or materials selection.
