Designed to help chemical and environmental engineers in the recycling and reuse of chemicals, this work is a concise guide to the effective recovery of solvents and the efficient operation of plants and processes in which solvents are used. It consolidates a wide range of information on solvent properties, discussing the removal of solvents from air and water, separation and drying techniques and options for disposal. It also examines aspects of safety, good-operating practice, economics and the future of solvent recovery.

Solvents play a vital role in modern society and yet the ultimate fate of almost all solvents is to be dispersed into the biosphere or destroyed. Nearly 35% of all VOC's entering the atmosphere are derived from solvents, so it is no surprise that solvent producers and users are under severe pressure to reduce or eliminate the volume of solvent released into the atmosphere. By providing practical guidance on the technologies available for solvent recovery and recycling, and reviewing the critical parameters required to achieve good recovery, the Solvent Recovery Handbook will show all solvent users how to recover solvents safely, efficiently and cost effectively.
The book also contains physical property data covering the fifty eight most commonly used solvents, plus detailed information on common solvent pairs, in tabular form. This combination of information on solvent properties and solvent recovery, much of it presented in an accessible tabular form, will make this book an essential purchase for all chemical engineers and industrial chemists dealing with solvents.
