Preface This book covers different types of pollution in chemical and allied industries, the extent and their nature, source of pollution, their adverse effects and their control and remedial measures. The text is supported by numerous examples, flowcharts and technical data which will enable the reader to grasp the information quickly and easily. The ecological equilibrium of the earth is endangered by the chemical process industries, fly-ash and other pollutants, posing grave pollution hazards. Recognising the need for a specialised book on this aspect, this text-cum-reference book has been written to serve as a comprehensive up-to-date source of information for undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering. The text is further supplemented by latest techniques and methods of treatment of wastes and other polluting agents. Besides this separate chapter focuses on emerging topics viz. hazards management, environmental impact assessment, environmental audit and pollution control laws and acts. In the end, few case studies have been given to highlight the problem and effects of the various kinds of industrial pollution to society and environment at large.
