  • Beyond Silent Spring

    The 1962 edition publication of Rachel Carson's book Silent Spring generated unprecedented concern about the environmental and health problems associated with two decades of widespread use of synthetic pesticides. Over thirty years later, Beyond Silent Spring provides a comprehensive distillation of current views on the issues it raised. With ...

  • Scientific Wet Process Technology for Innovative LSI/FPD Manufacturing

    As science pushes closer toward the atomic size scale, new challenges arise to slow the pace of the miniaturization that has transformed our society and fueled the information age. New technologies are necessary to surpass these obstacles and realize the tremendous growth predicted by Moore's law. Assembled from the works of pioneering ...

  • Chemical Dispersants for the Control of Oil Spills

    The symposium on Chemical Dispersants for the Control of Oil Spills was held at Williamsburg, Va., 4-5 Oct. 1977. The symposium was sponsored by Committee F20 on Spill Control Systems, American Society for Testing and Materials. L. T. McCarthy, Jr., presided as symposium chairman. The editors of this publication are L. T. McCarthy, Jr., G. P. ...

  • Biophotons

    It is now well established that all living systems emit a weak but permanent photon flux in the visible and ultraviolet range. This biophoton emission is correlated with many, if not all, biological and physiological functions. There are indications of a hitherto-overlooked information channel within the living system. Biophotons may trigger ...

  • RegenOx Design Manual

    RegenOx™ is an advanced chemical oxidation technology that destroys contaminants through powerful, yet controlled chemical reactions and not through biological means. RegenOx™ directly oxidizes contaminants while its unique catalytic component generates a range of highly oxidizing free radicals that rapidly and effectively destroy a range of ...

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer

    Protecting the Ozone Layer: Lessons, Models, and Prospects Since the mid-1980s, the international community has adopted several significant instruments designed to reverse the degradation of the life support systems of the planet. None of these international agreements have been as successful as the 1987 Montreal Protocol in creating the ...

  • Sea-Dumped Chemical Weapons: Aspects, Problems and Solutions

    The ecological threat posed by the more than 300,000 tonnes of chemical weapons dumped in the sea after the Second World War is one that demands the urgent attention of the international community. The amount dumped represents more than three times as much as the total reported chemical arsenals of the United States and Russia. The munitions ...

  • Exchange and Transport of Air Pollutants over Complex Terrain and the Sea

    As the regional models required to understand and control the generation, distribution and deposition of air pollutants become more precise, the need to understand the detailed effects of hilly and mountainous terrain becomes more acute. The Alpine regions and the mountainous Mediterranean coasts have large effets on the way the pollutant burden ...

    Mosquitoes and Their Control presents a wealth of information on the bionomics, systematics, ecology, research techniques and control of both nuisance and disease vector mosquitoes in an easily readable style, providing practical guidelines and important information for professionals and laymen alike.Ninety-two European species and more than 100 ...

  • Chemical Reactions and Processes under Flow Conditions

    Pharmaceutical and fine chemical products are typically synthesised batchwise which is an anomaly since batch processes have a series of practical and economical disadvantages. On the contrary, flow continuous processes present a series of advantages leading to new ways to synthesise chemical ...

  • Textile Chemicals

    This data- and factbook contains state-of-the-art information on the environmental aspects of 2,500 chemicals currently used in the textile industry worldwide. The authors have worked closely with industrial practitioners and managers of textile plants to ensure that only state-of-the-art science and technology are included. The texts preceding ...

  • Diagenesis: A Quantitative Perspective

    This advanced text treats the transformation of sediment into rock, a fundamental process which directly determines the storage and transmissibility properties of reservoirs and seals in hydrocarbon and groundwater systems and in strata-bound mineralization. Attention is paid to diagenetic data from classical petrography and geochemistry and ...

  • Kinetics of Water-Rock Interaction

    The geochemistry of the earth’s surface is controlled by chemical equilibrium, and the kinetics of the approach toward equilibrium. Many low temperature processes, such as weathering, do not reach equilibrium except over geologically long time periods. The approach to equilibrium can be described by kinetic theory and the application of kinetic ...
