Intended for those in government, academia and industry who are interested in, or responsible for pollution prevention (P2). This second edition reflects the rapid change in pollution prevention strategies and market needs, calling the readers attention to the concept and practices of pollution management rather than waste management only and to the understanding of pollution problems caused by environmentally unfriendly products and services.
The 16 chapters have been thoroughly revised and new chapters have been added on total environmental quality management; laws, regulations, programs and strategies; state, city and local P2 programs; education and research; P2 in the U.S. Defense Department; and sources of P2 information.
