This book is a practical how-to manual for implementing the best pollution prevention strategies that are economical and efficient for eliminating costly end-of-pipe treatments. The author, Dr. Kenneth L. Mulholland, focuses on eliminating pollution at the source in order to achieve zero pollution and waste, thus lowering treatment costs. The strategies introduced in the book are based on actual case studies and promise to reduce waste generation by 40-50% with corresponding cost savings.
The thrust of Dr. Mulholland’s method is, "Instead of starting from the front of the process, start with the waste streams and move backward through the process and ask different questions of the same process information. Then, your views change completely." This offers a fresh perspective in identifying and evaluating alternative cleaner production strategies.
