This 41st Edition presents case histories with operating data-and new research-on most topics of this major subject in today's world. This valuable Purdue Book will prove invaluable to all involved with waste treatment, providing information and data to help solve current problems. These proceedings of the May 1986 Purdue Conference include applications, research, methods and techniques, case histories, and operating data. The 91 papers include two special sections: 21 papers discuss toxic and hazardous wastes and 24 papers cover physical-biological systems. The book is further divided into papers on the following topics: (1) Pretreatment Programs and Systems; (2) Dairy Wastes; (3) Oilfield and Gas Pipeline Wastes; (4) Dye Wastes; (5) Coal, Coke and Power Plant Wastes; (6) Landfill Leachate; (7) Laws, Regulations, and Training; (8) Physical/Biological Systems; (9) Pulp and Paper Mill Wastes; (10) Plating Wastes; (11) Food Wastes; (12) Metal Wastes; and (13) Toxic and Hazardous Wastes.
