  • Air Pollution XVI

    Air pollution is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community; it is widespread and growing in importance and has clear and known impacts on health and the environment. The human need for transport, manufactured goods and services brings with it impacts on the atmospheric environment at scales from the local to the ...

  • Oil, Water, and Climate: An Introduction

    Today’s oil and gas are at record prices, whilst global energy demand is increasing from population and economic development pressures. Climate change, resulting in large part from the burning of fossil fuels, is exacerbating the impacts of the excelerated exploitation of our natural resources. Therefore, anxieties over energy, water, and climate ...

  • Environment Conscious Manufacturing

    Hotter temperatures, less arctic ice, loss of habitat—every other day, it seems, global warming and environmental issues make headlines. Consumer-driven environmental awareness combined with stricter recycling regulations have put the pressure on companies to produce and dispose of products in an environmentally responsible manner. Redefining ...

  • Making Sustainability Work

    The best practices in corporate sustainability performance are no longer the exclusive domain of companies like Ben & Jerry's or The Body Shop, as they were a decade ago; now, large, multinational companies like G.E. and Wal-Mart are leading the way with significant financial and organizational commitments to social and environmental issues. ...

    This unique volume provides new information on the testing, application, and installation of geosynthetics used in drainage applications in roadway and landfills. 9 papers divided into 3 sections cover the following:Field Performance Studies--examines the performance of 3 different geocomposite materials. They include a geonet with a geotextile, ...

  • Measurements of Rock Properties at Elevated Pressures and Temperatures

    Summarizes the state of this experimental art and documents new testing techniques. Focuses on permeability, pore and bulk compressibility, deformation, rock salt creep and deformation, dynamic properties, thermal conductivity and expansion, and thermo mechanical and transport ...

  • Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Pressurized Systems

    A publication that addresses the acoustic emission technique as a viable complimentary nondestructive testing method. The papers presented draw a correlation between the generation of acoustic emission and defect growth; develop methods to evaluate and rank the severity of the flaw growth; and include the evaluation that acoustic emission method ...

  • API RP 572 For Petroleum Refining Standards

    This recommended practice (RP) covers the inspection of pressure vessels. It includes a description of the various types of pressure vessels (including pressure vessels with a design pressure below 15 psig) and the standards for their construction and maintenance. This RP also includes reasons for inspection, causes of deterioration, frequency and ...

  • API STD 608 For Petroleum Refining Standards

    This standard specifies the requirements for metal ball valves suitable for petroleum, petrochemical and industrial applications that have:— flanged ends in sizes NPS ½ through NPS 20 (DN 15 through DN500);— butt-welding ends in sizes NPS ½ through NPS 20 (DN 15 through DN ...

  • The Politics of Chemical Risk: Scenarios for a Regulatory Future

    All industrial countries have developed regulatory systems to assess and manage the risk of chemical substances to the working and natural environment. The pressure to harmonize these often specialized regulatory systems is increasingly strong at the international level. Such harmonization not only entails the assessment of particular ...

  • Handbook of Biodiversity Methods - Survey, Evaluation and Monitoring

    Biodiversity is recognised to be of global importance, yet species and habitats continue to be under increasing pressure from human-induced influences. Environmental concerns are high on the political agenda, driving increased legislation to protect the natural environment. The starting point for much of this legislation is the requirement for a ...

  • Biological Systems under Extreme Conditions

    Biological systems are regulated by the thermodynamic parameters of pressure and temperature. With the help of new spectroscopic methods it is now possible to study the structure and function of such systems under extreme pressures and temperatures. This book described the resulting theory and applications of these pressure and temperature ...

  • API RP 575 For Petroleum Refining Standards

    This document provides useful information and recommended practices for the maintenance and inspection of atmospheric and low-pressure storage tanks. While some of these guidelines may apply to other types of tanks, these practices are intended primarily for existing tanks that were constructed to API Spec 12A or API Spec 12C, and API Std 620 or ...

  • The Geobiology and Ecology of Metasequoia

    The plant fossil record provides evidence that the genus Metasequoia was widely distributed and experienced a wide range of climatic and environmental conditions throughout the Northern Hemisphere from the early Late Cretaceous to the Plio-Pleistocene. Today the genus is limited to one species with approximately 5,000 mature individuals growing in ...

  • Economics of Water Resources: From Regulation to Privatization

    The Second Edition of Economics of Water Resources: From Regulation to Privatization updates and expands the exposition of the authors' central theses concerning: the integration of water quantity-quality issues, and the treatment of water as a multi-product commodity, with the market playing the major role in the determination of water ...
