DESCRIPTION

Completely updated and expanded from the author's previous book, Introduction to Energy and the Environment, this new book includes information on the environmental effects of combustion by-products, as well as technological breakthroughs and newly adopted environmental legislation which have taken place since the first edition. Such an enormous amount of information on advanced technologies has been included in this book, that the title has been changed accordingly. This second edition addresses the problems of acid rain, global warming, and coal ash treatment. Discussions of important legislation are included, especially Title III - Hazardous Air Pollutants, of the Federal Clean Air Act, 1990 Amendments, as well as legislation affecting health risk management.
