Sustainable Development in Practice: Case Studies for Engineersand Scientists, Second Edition explores the concept ofsustainable development and its implications for science andengineering. It looks at how sustainability criteria can becombined with traditional scientific and engineering considerationsto design and operate industrial systems in a more sustainablemanner. Taking a life cycle approach to addressing economic,environmental and social issues, the book presents a series of newpractical case studies drawn from a range of sectors, includingmining, energy, food, buildings, transport, waste, and health. Written in an accessible style, the book opens with a generalintroduction to the concept of sustainable development and exploresits practical implications for technical experts. Recognising thatpractical application of sustainable development depends on thecontext, the second part of the book is devoted to case studies.The case studies explore scientific and technical aspects alongsiderelevant environmental economic and social issues. The key features of this completely revised and updated secondedition include: * Twelve new chapters, including the case studies on nuclearenergy, biofuels, aviation, buildings, urban transport, food,sanitation and health. * Six completely revised chapters * Coverage of a wide range of sustainability issues in bothdeveloped and developing countries * Integration of scientific and technical aspects with economic,environmental and social considerations * Discussion of policy implications * Communication with the non-engaging and non-scientificaudience Considered essential reading for all engineers and scientistsconcerned with sustainable development, Sustainable Developmentin Practice: Case Studies for Engineers and Scientists, SecondEdition also provides key reading and learning materials forundergraduate and postgraduate science and engineeringstudents.
