Chemistry and its products today play an important role in almost all industrial ac tivities. Chemistry has captured our homes. We are supplied with new articles in an ever-increasing stream. New uses are being discovered. Old products disappear. Continuing and fast expansion is expected for the chemical industry in its proper sense. The reason for this is, of course, that chemistry has created products which meet requirements that we consider urgent or which in different ways make work easier, and make us more efficient, thereby increasing our standard of living in a wide sense: in terms of money, more spare time, social security, better education and better public health services. But a high standard of living also implies a good living environment. A lot of what has been done in praiseworthy aspiration of a better means of support and an im proved standard of living has involved a wasting of non-renewable natural resources. The products themselves or their waste products may pose a threat to the objectives we are trying to attain.

This book covers the fundamentals of environmental engineering and applications in water quality, air quality, and hazardous waste management. It begins by describing the fundamental principles that serve as the foundation of the entire field of environmental engineering. Readers are then systematically reintroduced to these fundamentals in a manner that is tailored to the needs of environmental engineers, and that is not too closely tied to any specific application.

Environmental Engineering provides a profound introduction to Ecology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Geology and Hydrology engineering. The authors explain transport phenomena, air pollution control, waste water management and soil treatment to address the issue of energy preservation, production asset and control of waste from human and animal activities. Modeling of environmental processes and risk assessment conclude the interdisciplinary approach.

The authors have written a practical introductory text exploring the theory and applications of unit operations for environmental engineers that is a comprehensive update to Linvil Rich’s 1961 classic work, “Unit Operations in Sanitary Engineering”. The book is designed to serve as a training tool for those individuals pursuing degrees that include courses on unit operations. Although the literature is inundated with publications in this area emphasizing theory and theoretical derivations, the goal of this book is to present the subject from a strictly pragmatic introductory point-of-view, particularly for those individuals involved with environmental engineering. This book is concerned with unit operations, fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer. Unit operations, by definition, are physical processes although there are some that include chemical and biological reactions. The unit operations approach allows both the practicing engineer and student to compartmentalize the various operations that constitute a process, and emphasizes introductory engineering principles so that the reader can then satisfactorily predict the performance of the various unit operation equipment.
