The past thirty years have witnessed a growing worldwide desire that po- tive actions be taken to restore and protect the environment from the degr- ing effects of all forms of pollutiona€”air, water, soil, and noise. Because pollution is a direct or indirect consequence of waste, the seemingly idealistic demand for a€œzero dischargea€ can be construed as an unrealistic demand for zero waste. However, as long as waste continues to exist, we can only attempt to abate the subsequent pollution by converting it to a less noxious form. Three major questions usually arise when a particular type of pollution has been id- tified: (1) How serious is the pollution? (2) Is the technology to abate it ava- able? and (3) Do the costs of abatement justify the degree of abatement achieved? This book is one of the volumes of the Handbook of Environmental Engineering series. The principal intention of this series is to help readers f- mulate answers to the last two questions above. The traditional approach of applying tried-and-true solutions to specific pollution problems has been a major contributing factor to the success of en- ronmental engineering, and has accounted in large measure for the establi- ment of a a€œmethodology of pollution control. a€ However, the realization of the ever-increasing complexity and interrelated nature of current environmental problems renders it imperative that intelligent planning of pollution abatement systems be undertaken.In a report produced for the API (American Petroleum Institute) (10), the annual cost estimate presented for the treatment ... the total annual cost for removal and treatment of phase-separated hydrocarbons and groundwater at a petroleum spill site. ... operational costs uncertain due to the necessity of supplying heat to promote complete combustion of the VOCs. ... at air-to-water ratios below approx 30:1, water pump brake power requirements increased sharply as did tower height, butanbsp;...
