  • Managed Ecosystems and CO2

    Managed ecosystems cover a large part of the Earth's land surface, provide almost all of our food and most of our wood and fibre, and are increasingly a source of renewable energy. Forecasting the ability of managed ecosystems to continue these vital roles in a globally changing environment is an inter-disciplinary challenge.To elucidate the ...

  • Laser Techniques in Luminescence Spectroscopy

    Laser techniques in luminescence from high-resolution methods, photolytic fragmentation to thermal lensing and capillary electrophoresis applications, and recent developments in time- and phase-resolution methodologies. Applications of laser fluorescence techniques to environmental materials, criminalistics, combustion studies, fiber optics, ...

  • Economic Botany

    Unlike most books on economic botany this is not an encyclopedic listing of plants and their uses. Instead it is an attempt at understanding why plants are used. Economic botany is a multidisciplinary study and the purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to some of the scientific principles, processes, and practices involved. The ...

  • Aerosols and coarse fly ashes in fixed-bed biomass combustion

    Band 7 of Series thermal biomass utilization / Schriftenreihe thermische BiomassenutzungRelevant topics of this book - Particle measurement techniques - Aerosol and coarse fly ash characterisation methods and analyses - Comprehensive data concerning aerosol and fly ash emissions from fixed-bed biomass combustion plants equipped with ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Mitigation in Forestry and Wood Industry

    The book provides theoretical and practical guidelines to use and enhance the potential of forests to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel resources. To understand the interactions linked with such concepts, the book addresses the following topics: forest dynamics and carbon budget; ...

  • Behavior of Polymeric Materials in Fire

    This publication focuses on the behavior of polymeric materials in high energy of fire environments. The polymeric materials included are both naturally occurring-such as wood and wool-and in many synthetic forms-polyolefins, polyethylene terephthalate, polyvinyl chloride, neoprene, polyethylene and ...

  • Physical and Related Properties of 145 Timbers

    To obtain the best attainable end-use stability of a wooden product it is essential to have information on the movement and shrinkage that may be expected. In this context, it is essential when drying timber to choose an accurate drying schedule in relation to the shrinkage figures and the risk of deformation. Generally, many timber ...

  • Ecotoxicological Characterization of Waste

    The ecotoxicological characterization of waste is part of their assessment as hazardous or non-hazardous according to the European Waste List. Despite its transfer into national law in the waste list ordinance 2001 no methodological recommendations have been provided to cover the hazard criterion (H14 'ecotoxicity') which was taken over from the ...

  • Biofuels Handbook

    Petroleum-based fuels are well-established products that have served industry and consumers for more than one hundred years. However petroleum, once considered inexhaustible, is now being depleted at a rapid rate. As the amount of available petroleum decreases, the need for alternative technologies to produce liquid fuels that could potentially ...

  • Turning Waste into Vehicle Fuel: Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) - A Step-By-Step Guide For Communities

    Energy Vision is a national 501 (c) (3) organization based in New York City whose goal is to  promote - through research and action - a swift transition to pollution-free renewable energy  sources. Programmatically, Energy Vision informs and engages with policy, business, and  environmental leaders, to support the shift of medium- ...

  • Mathematical Modeling of Fire

    Nine papers are featured. Two review the role of ASTM in fire modeling and describe ASTM E 906. Other papers present: a new simple model of fire growth in a compartment; a model of hydrogen chloride and decay; a fire loss modeling code for industrial facilities; characteristic times for describing forced-ventilation enclosure fires; optical and ...

  • Nondestructive Characterization and Imaging of Wood

    The subject of nondestructive evaluation of wood properties has its origin in the necessity to solve practical problems. This book comprehensively reviews numerous aspects of imaging and nondestructive characterization of wood products ranging from trees to the most complex wood-based composite. The text is of particular interest to those who are ...
