  • Pharmaceuticals in the Environment

    About 4000 medical compounds are being used in the drugs applied today. It is estimated that worldwide consumption of active compounds amounts to some 100 000 tons or more per year. Consequently, there is a need to highlight the most important questions and issues related to presence of pharmaceuticals in the environment. Pharmaceuticals in the ...

  • Oil Spills First Principles

    Marine oil spills are no longer considered unavoidable 'accidents' resulting from adverse environmental conditions or functions of catastrophic events. More than 80% of all spills are the result of 'human error'. The focus of the current legal, regulatory, and convention framework affecting the transportation of oil by ship reflects a recent ...

  • Sustainable Resource Use and Economic Dynamics
