Chemical Processes for a Sustainable Future PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Chemical Processes for a Sustainable Future free pdf This comprehensive book approaches sustainability from two directions, the reduction of pollution and the maintaining of existing resources, both of which are addressed in a thorough examination of the main chemical processes and their impact. Divided into five sections, each introduced by a leading expert in the field, the book takes the reader through the various types of chemical processes, demonstrating how we must find ways to lower the environmental cost (of both pollution and contributions to climate change) of producing chemicals. Each section consists of several chapters, presenting the latest facts and opinion on the methodologies being adopted by the chemical industry to provide a more sustainable future. A follow-up to Materials for a Sustainable Future (Royal Society of Chemistry 2012), this book will appeal to the same broad readership - industrialists and investors- policy makers in local and central governments- students, teachers, scientists and engineers working in the field- and finally editors, journalists and the general public who need information on the increasingly popular concepts of sustainable living.
