Description:

Equip your students to address the growing and increasingly intricate problem of controlling and processing the refuse created by global urban societies with SOLID WASTE ENGINEERING: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, 3E. While the authors prepare readers to deal with issues, such as regulations and legislation, the book primarily emphasizes developing and implementing solid waste engineering principles. The book first explains basic principles of the field, then demonstrates how to apply these principles in real world settings through worked examples. This proven approach helps your graduate or advanced undergraduate students learn to think reflectively and logically about problems and solutions in today's solid waste engineering.

He is a registered professional engineer in California, Georgia and Florida.

P. Arne Vesilind received his undergraduate degree in civil engineering from Lehigh University and his Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of North Carolina. He spent a post-doctoral year with the Norwegian Institute for Water Research in Oslo and a year as a research engineer with Bird Machine Company. He joined the faculty at Duke University in 1970 where he served as chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In 1999, he was appointed to the R. L. Rooke Chair of the Historical and Societal Context of Engineering at Bucknell University. He served in this capacity until his retirement in 2006.
