  • Handbook of Environmental Odour Management

    Complaints due to odour annoyance have become a major issue for wastewater treatment plant, waste management, landfill, intensive livestock and other industrial operators as the repeated release of unpleasant odorous emissions can constitute a nuisance to a local population. Traditionally, odour management has been maintained by the use of buffer ...

  • N2O and CH4 Emission from Wastewater Collection and Treatment Systems: State of the Science Report and Technical Report

    In a world where there is a growing awareness of the possible effects of human activities on climate change, there is a need to identify the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs).   As a result of this growing awareness, governments started to implement regulations that require water authorities to report ...

  • Evaluation of GHG Emissions from Septic Systems

    The emission rates of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from individual onsite septic systems used for the management of domestic wastewater were determined in this study. A static flux chamber method was used to determine the emission rates of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide gases from eight septic tanks and two soil dispersal systems. A ...

  • Carbon Sinks and Climate Change

    Reforestation and avoiding deforestation are methods of harnessing nature to tackle global warming – the greatest challenge facing humankind. In this book, Colin Hunt deals comprehensively with the present and future role of forests in climate change policy and practice. The author provides signposts for the way ahead in climate change policy and ...

  • Air Quality in Urban Environments

    Urban air quality is a topic which remains high on the scientific and political agenda. Concentrations of most air pollutants are higher in urban areas than in the surrounding rural regions, and given the high population densities, it is within urban areas that the majority of the population receive their air pollutant exposure. Despite the ...

  • Where does the carbon footprint fall? Developing a carbon map of food production

    The concept of local food is appealing to many consumers. But it is difficult to define what actually constitutes local food. Given the globalised nature of agricultural markets, bread baked in a small village bakery in England may be made from grain grown in Canada. Similarly, many of the inputs to a West Country dairy farm selling local ice ...

  • Green-Steam Mapping: Using Lean Techniques to Go Green

    Green-Steam Mapping is a systematic process or road map that employs lean techniques for achieving environmental sustainability in a way that improves an organziation’s bottom line as well as its overall health and sustainability. Based on the highly successfully lean philosophy and framework, going green can be applied to any organization, in any ...
