Economic development of any nation is possible only if the environmental protection laws are followed seriously. Wastes, if not treated effectively, may harm public health leading to the deterioration of ecosystem and ultimately to the growth and economy of the nation.

The coverage of both solid waste as well as liquid waste management in a single volume makes this book unique. It discusses various economical methods to manage wastes providing a practical approach to the book. It gives the knowledge of important techniques for converting wastes into the products useful for the mankind and also informs readers about the Indian legal framework relating to the solid and liquid waste management. The technologies explained in the book are field-tested and have been practically implemented either in India or the United States. Hence, these techniques are highly viable for communities and industries to improve their waste management practices.

Blending theory and practices of waste management, the authors provide extensive case studies from their on-job experiences to exemplify how solid and liquid wastes can be managed successfully. The chapter on 'municipal waste management' exclusively covers the technologies applied to convert construction and demolition wastes and organic wastes into useful products. With the increase in electronic wastes, a chapter on 'electronic waste management' has found place in the book. Besides, the text covers management of plastic wastes, biomedical wastes, radioactive wastes, hazardous wastes, and also operations and maintenance of the treatment facilities. The chapter on 'liquid waste management' is focused on municipal wastewater and common effluent treatment plant for industrial wastewater. The review questions at the end of each chapter help students to assess their knowledge and develop self-efficacy in the subject. Whereas, the appendices provide performance evaluation of solid waste management systems and sewage treatment plants, numerical problems for practice, and glossary of important terms.

The book primarily caters to the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate courses on Environmental Science and Engineering; Energy and Environmental Engineering; Environmental Engineering and Management; Municipal Solid Waste Management. Besides, it provides practical information to environmental professionals and to the students of Industrial Management, Civil Engineering and Biotechnology.
