Format: Hardcover
The author presents an excellent review of chemical and biological treatments for odors. The only failing is taking the technology to the next step---full scale. To do so, requires several examples worked out for industrial equipment. From the perspective of identifying which equipment will work, this is an excellent catalog of information. The author compares all aspects of different remediation: cost, feasibility, ease of use, safety, etc.

If you work in consulting or have an odor problem, you will want this book. An experienced chemical engineer should be able to extrapolate from the text quite nicely.
