Description

Environmentalists often perceive the risk management approach to environmental and public health policy as a tool to block regulation of industrial pollution. In contrast, this book presents six case studies which provide examples of how federal risk-based regulation has encouraged industry's investment in pollution control. The book traces the impact of risk management on the regulation of lead in gasoline, ozone-depleting chemicals, and emissions from the drycleaning, pulp and paper, coke, and municipal waste combuster industries.
