Product Description SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING addresses the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by our urban society. While the authors discuss issues such as regulations and legislation, their main emphasis is on solid waste engineering principles. They maintain their focus on principles by first explaining the basic principles of the field, then demonstrating how these principles are applied in real world settings through worked examples. By using this book as part of a graduate or advanced undergraduate course students will emerge being able to think reflectively and logically about the problems and solutions in solid waste engineering. Review "The book is clearly written and concepts are clearly described." "I really enjoy the final thoughts sections. We had fun discussing these in class." About the Author William A. Worrell received a B.S. and M.S. in Civil Engineering from Duke University in 1976 and 1978, respectively. His master's thesis involved evaluating the separation efficiencies of various air classifiers. In 1989 he attended Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government Summer Program for Senior Executives in State and Local Government.
