Living Downstream is a beautifully rendered book, part science, part history, part memoir. Steingraber’s purpose is to refocus public attention upstream, by which she means where problems begin.

It is a crash course in public health, and in adopting a public health perspective on cancer and pollution prevention. Moved by its message, the. Pollution prevention book prevention (P2) is any practice that reduces, eliminates, or prevents pollution at its source. P2, also known as "source reduction," is the ounce-of-prevention approach to waste management.

Reducing the amount of pollution produced means less waste to control, treat, or dispose of. Less pollution means less hazards posed to public. POLLUTION PREVENTION Problems and Solutions Edited by louis Theodore, R.

Publisher Summary. This chapter deals with pollution prevention techniques and best practices for the wood-preserving industry. Modern wood-treating plants are considerably less polluting than they were two decades ago, but still it is classified as a ‘‘dirty” industry because of its dependence on chemicals that are toxic and carcinogenic.

Pollution Prevention and Control: Part I Book 2 is about accounting for the flow of energy and material, both polluting and innocuous, through manufacturing and waste treatment systems. We want to stimulate innovation in pollution control systems design and pollution prevention.

Pollution prevention (P2) is a strategy for reducing the amount of waste created and released into the environment, particularly by industrial facilities, agriculture, or large corporations view P2 as a method of improving the efficiency and profitability of production processes by waste reduction and technology advancements.

Legislative bodies have enacted P2 measures, such as. What the World Bank proposes in the 'Pollution Prevention and Abatement Handbook ' is environmental management rather than pollution control.

To accomplish this, the book recommends a broad mix of incentives Quite often in developing countries, the economy progresses while the environment deteriorates because pollution control measures Ratings: 0.
