  • The process and mechanism of urban environmental change: an evolutionary view

    This paper discusses how an evolutionary viewpoint can contribute to the understanding of the processes and mechanisms of urban environmental change. There are four major components in the urban environmental evolution concept: (a) cities can be viewed as complex systems that are subject to constant change, which constitutes a dynamic evolutionary process; (b) urban environmental profiles of ...

  • Environmentally Friendly Recycling Process for Plastics and Rubber Recovery

     Abstract A quantized converter of the potential energy of a fluid or a free-flowing mass located in a natural or an artificial storage, which should always be situated at a higher level than the aforementioned converter in the accepted geodesic coordinate system. In contrast to the known converters, such as the water runner (turbine), operating in continuous regime and transforming ...


  • Environmental pollution generated from process industries in Bangladesh

    The sources of environmental pollution in process industries in Bangladesh are discussed. Total pollution load into environment (i.e., into air, water and land) generated from process industries is determined and presented using industrial pollution projection system (IPPS) developed by the World Bank. Most polluting industries in Bangladesh are identified and ranked. The projection of this ...

  • Integration of environmental issues in the firm: learning processes and coordination

    This paper considers the extent to which the organisational structure of the firm influences the perception and the integration of environmental problems.

  • Simultaneous treatment of environmental and financial risk in process design

    In this paper, we propose a new measure for environmental risk and discuss a way of considering it simultaneously with financial risk. Instead of using single numbers to define environmental risk, we propose to use the cumulative probability of emissions, similarly to the cumulative distributions of profit used for financial risk. We also propose to use a risk surface as a generalisation of the ...

  • Environmental toxicity and radioactivity assessment of a titanium processing residue with potential for environmental use

    Thorough examination of the physico‐chemical characteristics of a Ti processing residue was undertaken including mineralogical, geochemical, and radiochemical characterisation, and an investigation of the environmental toxicity of softwater leachate generated from the residue. Concentrations of most metals measured in the leachate were low; thus, the residue is unlikely to leach high levels of ...
