Handbook of environmental management and technology by Gwendolyn Burke( Book )

30 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike the majority of handbooks in the field, Handbook of Environmental Management and Technology is comprehensive in scope. Taking a uniquely historical perspective, it touches on virtually all the major pollution problems and their solutions. Divided into six parts, Part I offers an overview of the field as seen from a global perspective, dealing with topics such as the sources of pollution, the international effects of pollution, various regulatory approaches and more. Parts II and III are devoted to air and water pollution, respectively, and provide detailed coverage of basic dispersion and control issues as well as more specific topics such as acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and wastewater treatment. Part IV discusses general solid waste management issues, including municipal, medical and hazardous waste control, and then narrows its focus to examine a number of individual hazardous pollutants, including asbestos, oils and metals, underground storage tanks, and more. In Part V the authors address a host of miscellaneous issues including noise pollution, domestic and architectural considerations, comparative prevention approaches, and energy conservation. Part VI is devoted to daily management issues such as worker training and safety, crisis management, the monitoring of background contaminant levels, risk assessment and communication, and more." "Handbook of Environmental Management and Technology is a timely, comprehensive reference that belongs on the shelves of plant engineers and managers, industrial hygienists, and health and safety officers. It is also an invaluable resource for lawyers, reporters and other news media personnel, and regulatory officials who monitor pollution."--Jacket

Nanotechnology : environmental implications and solutions by Louis Theodore( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nanotechnology is revolutionizing the chemical, telecom, biotech, pharmaceutical, health care, aerospace, and computer industries, among others, and many exciting new nanotech applications are envisioned for the near future. While the rapid pace of innovation has been truly inspiring, much remains to be learned about the potential environmental and health risks posed by this nascent technology and its byproducts. So important is this issue that the ultimate success or failure of nanotechnology may well depend on how effectively science and industry address these concerns in the years ahead. Written by two accomplished environmental professionals, Nanotechnology: Environmental Implications and Solutions brings scientists, engineers, and policymakers up to speed on the current state of knowledge in this vitally important area. Professor Theodore and Dr. Kunz provide a concise review of nano-fundamentals and explore background issues surrounding nanotechnology and its environmental impact. They then follow up with in-depth discussions of: the control, monitoring, and reduction of nanotech byproducts and their impact on the air, water, and land; health risks associated with nanotechnology, and methods to assess and control them; nanotech hazard risk assessment-including emergency response planning and personnel training; multimedia approaches that are available for the analysis of the impact of nanotechnology in the chemical, manufacturing, and waste disposal industries; the future of nanotechnology and the "Industrial Revolution II"; the legal implications of nanotechnology; societal and ethical implications of nanotechnology-based materials and processing method

Nanotechnology : basic calculations for engineers and scientists by Louis Theodore( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is not a secret that the teaching of a nanotechnology course will soon be required in most engineering and science curricula. It is algo generally accepted as one of the key state-of-the-art courses in applied science. The need to develop an understand- ing of this general subject matter for the practicing engineer and scientist of the future cannot be questioned. One of the problems with nanotechnology is that its range of subject matter is so broad that nearly every engineering and science discipline falls under the nano umbrella; in effect, it is interdisciplinary. Adding to the confusion is that no clear-cut definition of nanotechnology has emerged since its infancy nearly a half century ago. The reader will soon note that the author has not laid claim to an end-all definition, but rather refers to nanotechnology simply as nanotechnology. This project was a unique undertaking. Rather than prepare a textbook on nano- technology, the author considered writing a problem-oriented book because of the dynamic nature of this emerging field. Ultimately, it was decided to prepare an over- view of this subject through illustrative examples rather than to provide a compre- hensive treatise. One of the key features of this book is that it could serve both academia (students) and industry. Thus, it offers material not only to individuaIs with limited technical background, but also to those with extensive industrial experience. As such, it can be used as a text in either a general engineering or science course and (perhaps primarily) as a training tool for industry. As is usually the case in preparing a manuscript, the question of what to include and what to omit has been particularly difficult. However, the problems and solutions in this work attempt to address principIes and basic calculations common to nanotechnology. This basic calculations workbook is an outgrowth of the 2005 John Wiley & Sons book "Nanotechnology: Environmental Implications and Solutions". The desirability of publishing a workbook that focuses almost exclusively on nanotechnology calculations was obvious following the completion of that book. This book contains nearly 300 problems related to a variety of topics of relevance to the nanotechnology field. These problems are organized into the following four Parts or Categories
