Technical information relating to current and potential pollution prevention and waste minimization techniques in 36 industries, with many opportunities for cross-utilization.

When wastes are reduced or eliminated, substantial economies can be realized by reduced expenditures for pollution control equipment, and lower treatment and disposal costs. Other considerations include lessened liability problems, and improved public image.

The thousands of items of technological advice in the book make it a valuable reference source.


Over 35 industries are represented in this book, with opportunities to prevent pollution for each industry.
