Summary Management of industrial processes and the waste streams they create is a fundamental aspect of careers in environmental engineering and technology. These individuals must understand how production processes can be modified to reduce the wastes that emerge as manufacturing byproducts, as well as how to manage those waste streams in the most cost-efficient way possible. This fourth volume in the PETE (Partnership for Environmental Technology Education) Preserving the legacy series is an introduction to the subject
