Environmental Engineering Dictionary and Directory

The most unique feature of this book is the inclusion of more than 3000 trademarks and brand names. Many of these commercial terms for proprietary products or processes are so common or descriptive that they have fallen into general use.

This confusion is compounded by the fact that many terms contain similar prefixes (e.g., bio-, enviro-, hydra-, hydro-, etc.) and it is often difficult to tell them apart.

This book originates from the Screening Equipment Handbook, first published in 1988, whose glossary contains a list of screening-related trademarks and brand names along with their company affiliation.

Even though that list was relatively short, a surprisingly large number of companies had come and gone or changed their names through mergers or acquisitions.

This led to an expanded directory entitled, The Dictionary of Water and Wastewater Treatment Trademarks and Brand Names, published in 1991, and which contained 1200 commercial terms.

The Concise Dictionary of Environmental Engineering followed in 1996. In addition to the 2200 commercial terms, it was further expanded to include 3000 generic environmental engineering terms.

Shortly after it was published, the environmental equipment manufacturing industry began a consolidation led by USFilter, Waterlink, Baker Hughes, ITT, F.B. Leopold, and others that have resulted in changes to 43% of the terms included in the 1996 edition.
