The impact of chemicals in the environment has driven the development of more benign compounds and the policies controlling them. Titles in this set discuss the impacts, and alternatives, to chemicals in the environment.Chemical Alternatives Assessments (2013, ISBN 9781849736053)Chemicals Alternatives Assessments (CAA) are used around the world to help guide formulators and manufacturers in the selection of less hazardous chemical ingredients. As part of an AA, standardized approaches are applied to screen chemical ingredients for their intrinsic human health and environmental hazards. Ingredients of most concern/highest hazard are flagged as a result of an CAA, and over time, products can be made less hazardous through informed substitution. This book presents the reader with an informed view of the topic from a global pool of experts representing several disciplines.Chemicals in the Environment (2006, ISBN 9780854042067)Rising concern in recent years over the possible adverse environmental consequences of the use of chemicals has led to a steady increase in national activity towards greater regulation, as well as voluntary agreements with manufacturers for risk management of certain products. Highly topical, and with authoritative contributions from international experts, this book covers both the scientific underpinning and the legislative and practical issues of this emotive subject. Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (1999, ISBN 978085404255)Long-term environmental effects of chemical exposure have long been of concern. It is thought that low-level exposure to a wide range of chemicals may be affecting endocrine function, leading to a reduction in fertility and an increase in reproductive cancers. With contributions from representatives of the Medical Research Council's Institute for Environment and Health and the US Environmental Protection Agency, the articles provide a comprehensive and detailed review of current issues.Agricultural Chemicals and the Environment (1996, ISBN 9780854042203)Enormous increases in agricultural productivity can properly be associated with the use of chemicals. There is, however a dark side to this picture and it is important to balance the benefits which flow from the use of agricultural chemicals against their environmental impacts which sometimes are seriously disadvantageous.This is a print only set.
