Waste incineration is finding increasing favour as a waste disposal method and this Issue considers the topic of waste disposal and the place of incineration as an option. There is currently great interest and considerable controversy over waste incineration and this book gives a dispassionate view of the scientific and technical issues involved.

The present book takes a careful look at the hazards posed by nanoparticles and makes a balanced assessment of the benefits and disadvantages of forging ahead with large-scale nanotechnology. Nanoparticles' main point of entry into the body is via the inhalation of air polluted by a variety of combustion processes, including the operation of waste incineration plants and vehicle engines.

This well established book examines the science and technology of those provisions and services that are required in the built environment. The main considerations are the effects of heat, light and sound within buildings. In addition other essential requirements such as supplies of electricity and water are discussed. considered in an integrated context such that environmental events can be discussed and understood as part of the process of history.

Issues in Environmental Science and Technology is a book series published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, published twice a year. Each issue's content focuses on a specific theme topic. The series is written by worldwide experts in various specialist fields, and covers broader aspects of the science (such as economics and politics) as well as the narrower chemistry of environmental science. It aims to assess possible practical solutions to perceived environmental problems.

Waste incineration is finding increasing favour as a waste disposal method and this Issue considers the topic of waste disposal and the place of incineration as an option. It reviews the emissions and environmental impacts of incineration and available control technologies, specific research upon emissions of trace metals and organic micropollutants, and the methodologies for environmental impact assessment. There is currently great interest and considerable controversy over waste incineration and this book gives a dispassionate view of the scientific and technical issues involved. It provides a broad overview of the role incineration can play in waste management and looks at how environmental impacts may be managed and assessed. For municipal waste, when coupled with energy recovery, waste incineration provides an efficient, spatially compact means of bulk waste reduction, which is widely favoured over landfill, and for some chemical wastes, provides the only presently viable disposal option. This book places incineration in the context of other waste disposal options and examines the relative benefits and environmental impacts in a balanced way.
