Environmental Technology Publications Ltd are due to launch a new title in April 2008 which will be titled Pollution Solutions and covers water and waste water equipment, air clean up, consultancy services, soil remediation and waste handling. The contact for the title is Marcus Pattison the Publisher and he can be contacted on 01727 858840 and email@example.comAs well as raising a smile, it may also offer an outlet for science writers, which is our excuse for passing it on, with all the gory details.
