This book examines how chemistry, chemical processes, and transformations are used for pollution prevention and control. Pollution prevention reduces or eliminates pollution at the source, whereas pollution control involves destroying, reducing, or managing pollutants that cannot be eliminated at the source. Applications of environmental chemistry are further illustrated by nearly 150 figures, numerous example calculations, and several case studies designed to develop analytical and problem solving skills. The book presents a variety of practical applications and is unique in its integration of pollution prevention and control, as well as air, water, and solid waste management.

"The contents of the book are shown in a didactic way through figures, tables and practical examples. The language is suitable for a direct learning, facilitated by the theoretical-practical combination of the chemical and physical approach to the environmental problem."
-Marisol Andrea Belmonte Soto, Universidad de Playa Ancha, Valparaiso, Chile
"A good guide for understanding waste and pollution and the importance for preventing pollution. Equipped with a good amount of examples as well as appropriate conceptual and theoretical background, this book has a unique approach to pollution problem and its control. It has integrated pollution prevention and control, as well as air, water, and solid waste management."
-Mohammad Zandi, University of Sheffield, United Kingdom
"Since many environmental engineering students have forgotten their basic chemistry skills, this book allows them to remember very easily. One of the highlights of the book is its direct language, so it is easy to understand by the student. It is also concise, allowing the student to review / learn the concepts quickly. This is very important since it will be an auxiliary book of the subject. The authors' experience in this area allows them to contribute a series of case studies where theoretical knowledge is applied to address real environmental problems. In this way, the student succeeds in capturing the practical usefulness of the concepts studied and understanding their importance in his future work performance."
-Jose Luis Campos Gomez, Universidad Adolfo Ibanez, Chile
"I believe this book will be a valuable contribution to the environmental chemistry and pollution prevention literature and would be a welcome, modern addition to the current selection of textbooks. These authors have a unique perspective to Environmental Engineering that I find welcome because it focuses on problem solving rather than the general chemistry of the environment, for which there is a large selection of fine books."
-David Stevens, Utah State University, USA
"Chemical Processes for Pollution Prevention and Control covers chemistry fundamentals applicable to water, wastewater, and air pollution. It's both an invaluable text for undergraduate and graduate students. Also, it's an excellent refresher and reference for practicing engineers. It's easy to use and to skim for topics of interest."
-David Hendricks, Colorado State University, USA
"... provides a thorough knowledge on the chemistry of pollutants and ways to mitigate them. The narrative on Green Chemistry adds value to the book by solving case studies that guide the implementation of pollution prevention and mitigation strategies."
-Debalina Sengupta, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA
"Written in a simple and easy-to-read style, the book provides the essentials of treatment of inorganic waste by various technologies and provides a relative comparison of these methods. It is a valuable learning tool for students who are not exposed to this area."
-P A Ramachandran, Washington University at St. Louis, Missouri, USA
