Environmentally Conscious Materials Handling
Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering
Best practices for environmentally friendly
handling and transporting materials
This volume of the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering helps you understand and implement methods for reducing the environmental impact of handling materials in manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution systems, as well as dealing with wastes and hazardous materials. Chapters have been written by experts who, based on hands-on experience, offer detailed coverage of relevant practical and analytic techniques to ensure reliable materials handling. The book presents practical guidelines for mechanical, industrial, plant, and environmental engineers, as well as plant, warehouse, and distribution managers, and officials responsible for transporting and disposing of wastes and dangerous materials.
Materials Handling System Design
Ergonomics of Manual Materials Handling
Intelligent Control of Material Handling
Incorporating Environmental Concerns in Supply Chain Optimization
Municipal Solid Waste Management and Disposal
Hazardous Waste Treatment
Sanitary Landfill Operations
Transportation of Radioactive Materials
Pipe System Hydraulics
Each chapter provides case studies and examples from diverse industries that demonstrate how to effectively plan for and implement environmentally friendly materials handling systems. Figures illustrate key principles, and tables provide at-a-glance summaries of key data. Finally, references at the end of each chapter enable you to investigate individual topics in greater depth.
