The Humanure Handbook: A Guide to Composting Human Manure, 2nd edition

The Humanure Handbook: A Guide to Composting Human Manure, 2nd edition Lowest new price: $53.18
Lowest used price: $8.23
List price: $19.00
Author: Joseph Jenkins
Brand: Brand: Jenkins Pub

The most comprehensive, up-to-date, and thoroughly researched book on the topic of composting human manure available anywhere. It includes a review of the historical, cultural, and environmental issues pertaining to "human waste," as well as an in depth look at the potential health risks related to humanure recycling, with clear instructions on how to eliminate those dangers in order to safely convert humanure into garden soil. Written by a humanure composter with over twenty years experience, this classic work now includes illustrated, step-by-step instructions on how to build a "$25 composting toilet." Also new to the second edition is a chapter on alternative graywater systems; color photos of humanure compost gardens; a review of U.S. state regulations pertaining to compost toilets, graywater systems, and constructed wetlands; and a list of compost toilets sources worldwide. The humor throughout the book, however, remains execrable.

Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation (New Directions in Civil Engineering)

Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation (New Directions in Civil Engineering) Lowest new price: $132.33
Lowest used price: $38.19
List price: $180.00
Author: Raymond N. Yong

Why do some contaminants remain in soils indefinitely? How much of a threat do they pose to human health or the environment? The need for effective and economic site decontamination arises daily. Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation discusses why soils remain contaminated, focusing on the development of the factors, properties, characteristics, and parameters of soils and individual contaminants.
Subjects covered include the basic properties of soils affecting accumulation of contaminants, long-term retention of contaminants and their fate, including the development of intermediate products. The author emphasizes the factors, interactions, and mechanisms important in the bonding and partitioning process. He provides the groundwork for determining the fate of pollutants in soils and sediments and their mitigation.
Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation focuses on why soils and sediments remain contaminated, not how they became contaminated in the first place. You will understand why specific contaminants remain in soils and sediments, how much of a threat they pose to human health and the environment, and what steps to take for mitigation. With this information you can determine the extent of the contamination of soils and sediments, how long they will remain a threat, and what methods to use for their remediation.

Feedstock Recycling and Pyrolysis of Waste Plastics: Converting Waste Plastics into Diesel and Other Fuels

Feedstock Recycling and Pyrolysis of Waste Plastics: Converting Waste Plastics into Diesel and Other Fuels Lowest new price: $478.00
Lowest used price: $369.00
List price: $478.00

Pyrolysis is a recycling technique converting plastic waste intofuels, monomers, or other valuable materials by thermal andcatalytic cracking processes. It allows the treatment of mixed,unwashed plastic wastes. For many years research has been carriedout on thermally converting waste plastics into useful hydrocarbonsliquids such as crude oil and diesel fuel. Recently the technologyhas matured to the point where commercial plants are now available.Pyrolysis recycling of mixed waste plastics into generator andtransportation fuels is seen as the answer for recovering valuefrom unwashed, mixed plastics and achieving their desired diversionfrom landfill.

This book provides an overview of the science and technology ofpyrolysis of waste plastics. It describes the types ofplastics that are suitable for pyrolysis recycling, the mechanismof pyrolytic degradation of various plastics, characterization ofthe pyrolysis products and details of commercially mature pyrolysistechnologies. This book also covers co-pyrolysis technology,including: waste plastic/waste oil, waste plastics/coal, and wasteplastics/rubber.
