Equip your students to address the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by global urban societies with SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, 3E. While the authors prepare readers to deal with issues, such as regulations and legislation, the book primarily emphasizes developing and implementing solid waste engineering principles. The book first explains basic principles of the field, then demonstrates how to apply these principles in real world settings through worked examples. This proven approach helps your graduate or advanced undergraduate students learn to think reflectively and logically about problems and solutions in today's solid waste engineering.
