This book gives students and practitioners an understanding of regulations, pollutants, and waste management that they can take into whatever field or business they pursue.

Sections include:
Overview ? introduces environmental issues, regulations, and types of pollutants

Solid Waste ? examines the different types of solid waste, such as hazardous, medical, and nuclear, as well as treatment techniques for each
Pollution Prevention ? focuses on pollution prevention in areas such as health, safety, and accident prevention; energy conservation; and waste reduction
Risk ? examines how environmental risks are perceived and communicated, and how individuals can be educated about them
Other Areas of Interest ? includes coverage of electromagnetic fields, environmental implications of nanotechnology, and ethical issues as they relate to the environment

This book offers a combination of insightful coverage, concise language, and convenient pedagogical features that make it a complete teaching tool.
