  • Barrier Systems for Environmental Contaminant Containment and Treatment

    Containment and permeable reactive barriers have come full circle as an acceptable environmental control technology during the past 30 years. As interest shifted back toward containment in the 1990s, the industry found itself relying largely on pre-1980s technology. Fortunately, in the past 10 years important advances have occurred in several ...

  • Update on Troubleshooting in Thermoforming

    Thermoforming is one of the most common methods of processing plastics. It is extensively used by the packaging industry to produce disposable containers from blister packs for pharmaceuticals and electronics to microwavable food trays.There are many potential sources for problems in thermoforming and it is often hard to recognise the source of ...

  • Endocrine Disrupters

    During recent decades, millions of tonnes of man-made chemicals have been produced and released into the environment, with very little safety testing. Many of these chemical substances have been found to interfere with the endocrine system and modulate its function. This book not only overviews the effects of endocrine/disrupting substances ...

  • Nuclear Risk in Central Asia

    There are a significant number of nuclear and radiological sources in Central Asia, which have contributed, are still contributing, or have the potential to contribute to radioactive contamination in the future. Key sources and contaminated sites of concern are: (1) The nuclear weapons tests performed at the Semipalatinsk Test Site (STS) in ...

  • Metals in the Environment: Analysis by Biodiversity

    A summary of data on heavy metal accumulation, biomonitoring, toxicity and tolerance, metal contamination and pollution in the environment, and the importance of biodiversity for environmental monitoring and cleanup of metal-contaminated and polluted ecosystems. It advocates the use of bacteria, mycorrhizae, freshwater algae, salt marshes, bryo- ...

  • Product Innovation and Eco-Efficiency

    Prefaced by Björn Stigson, President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, this book is one of the few that treats this topic by putting representatives of industry at centre stage. The book systematically addresses the drivers, the tools, and sector-specific elements that play a role in this process. The five chapters in ...

  • Economic Report on Africa 2007: Accelerating Africa’s Development through Diversification

    Profound changes are increasingly occurring in all areas of the world economy. While the industrialized and emerging economies are able to contain the multiple external and internal shocks generated by these changes, Africa on its part is still struggling to cope with them. The analyses reported in the present edition of the Report review the ...

  • Advances in Land Remote Sensing

    This book collects the review papers from both technical sessions and three discussion panels of the 9th International Symposium on Physical Measurements and Signatures in Remote Sensing (ISPMSRS). It systematically summarizes the past achievements and identifies the frontier issues as the research agenda for the near future. It covers all aspects ...
