  • Physicochemical Groundwater Remediation

    As we transition into the 21st century, it is apparent that this is an exciting time for environmental engineers and scientists studying remediation technologies. There has been a rapid development of new ways to clean-up polluted groundwater. Research activities of the past and next 10 years will have a dramatic impact on the quality of the ...

  • Sustainable Resource Use and Economic Dynamics

    Thirty years after the publication of the famous symposium issue of the Review of Economic Studies, which started the neoclassical literature on growth theory and resource economics, this volume seeks to reinforce research efforts in order to provide adequate solutions for today’s challenges in the field of sustainable development. It compiles ...

  • Water Infrastructure for Sustainable Communities

    New model for water management is emerging worldwide in response to water shortages, polluted waterways, climate change, and loss of biodiversity. Cities and towns are questioning the ecological and financial sustainability of big-pipe water, stormwater, and sewer systems and are searching for “lighter footprint” more sustainable solutions. Pilot ...

  • 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 ...

  • Indoor Air Quality Engineering

    Engineers are increasingly faced with indoor air quality issues, particularly in the design of ventilation and filtration systems and airborne contaminant removal. Because this specialty has only recently gained momentum, resources have been limited to scattered research papers on this topic, until now.Indoor Air Quality Engineering covers a wide ...

  • 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 ...
