Author: Martin N. Sara
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

This landmark new book sets the standard for planning, performing, and interpreting investigations for solid and hazardous waste sites and selecting appropriate locations for ground-water monitoring. It covers the technical components of assessment monitoring programs that define both the rate and extent of contamination and provide design criteria for aquifer remediation. Technical tools are discussed in detail to provide background techniques such as flow net constructions, cross section instructions, and documentation standards. More than 500 figures and tables illustrate the author's structured holistic program for examining the physical, chemical, and environmental factors of a site for waste disposal. The technical aspects of site assessments regarding contaminated ground-water evaluation and remediation are also covered in detail.
Learn the fundamentals of site assessments

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: $687.04
List price: $478.00

Pyrolysis is a recycling technique converting plastic waste into fuels, monomers, or other valuable materials by thermal and catalytic cracking processes. It allows the treatment of mixed, unwashed plastic wastes. For many years research has been carried out on thermally converting waste plastics into useful hydrocarbons liquids such as crude oil and diesel fuel. Recently the technology has matured to the point where commercial plants are now available. Pyrolysis recycling of mixed waste plastics into generator and transportation fuels is seen as the answer for recovering value from unwashed, mixed plastics and achieving their desired diversion from landfill.

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