age new environmental technology and pollution prevention

The Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control (3rd Edition) provides a detailed review of the chemistry and operating conditions of many of the present large-scale chemical processes important to our economy and high standards of living. The processes that could lead to emissions affecting our air, soil, and water are considered, together with ways in which it may be possible to reduce or eliminate these pollutants. Focusing on cleaner production concepts without neglecting 'end of pipe' measures. With an increase in the awareness of corporate and social responsibility among business and industry leaders, the pressure to reduce harmful emissions and the desire to increase efficiencies and energy utilization, this book provides an essential resource. Suitable for researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students in the fields of chemical and biochemical engineering and environmental science, as well as government monitoring and regulatory agencies and industry leaders who want to stay one step ahead, this book will be a valuable addition to any library.

Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control by Martin B

Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control considers community, municipal, power generation, industrial, and transportation components of environmental impact. The book covers the major inorganic and organic commodity chemicals; aluminum, iron and steel, and copper prodution; pulp and paper; fermentation; petroleum production and refining. It also includes key topics and process details for major peterochemicals and large-scale consumer and engineering polymers. This single, convenient volume describes aspects of recycling at the industrial and post-consumer levels, and emphasizes a quantitative approach as used in the author's well-known lifecycle work with disposable and reusable cups.

Is global warming a pollution problem or a technology problem?

Study of environmental films and their role in shaping environmental imaginations and actions in contemporary life. Applies fundamentals of film analysis to critical stylistic, textual and contextual (historical and political-economic) investigations of both fictional and documentary environmental films. Topics include Hollywood films about wildlife, wilderness, land use, technology and pollution, and documentaries on wildlife conservation, wilderness-adventure, and socio-nature themes. Prerequisite: ES 225 and any 200 level Environmental Studies course or permission of the instructor.

Does advancement of Technology cause Pollution?

Aircraft produce emissions and pollution harmful to humans and the environment. Though aircraft are only responsible for a small percentage of transportation industry emissions, higher concentrations of air traffic at lower altitudes around major airports cause increased local pollution levels. Current monitoring systems in place provide no accountability for emissions. There exists a need for a system to ensure compliance and accountability to pollution and emissions regulations for aircraft at major airports. To meet this need, this team has developed the Air Pollution Accountability and Compliance Tracking (APACT) System. This system references existing standardized pollutant index databases using collected flight track data along with each aircraft's unique identification number to compute a cumulative emissions estimate called the Emissions Inventory (EI). This process was performed for each approaching and departing aircraft within designated boundaries surrounding an airport. The output of the A-PACT System shows the Emissions Inventory of each aircraft and is given in mass of pollutant produced per unit of time. The output was analyzed over a 24 hour period of flights to assess total airport inventory. Particular Airline emissions inventories were analyzed to assess contribution to total inventory. Airports and airlines can use this tool in assessments of pollution mitigation efforts such as fleet mix, level of technology and pollution attainment determination. Similarly, the system can be used as a tool to advise and guide regulatory authorities in making their decisions.

A growing body of evidence indicates that small particulates are associated with an increased mortality risk. Accordingly, attention has focused on exhaust from diesel engines, which contains finer particulates than gasoline. Moreover, these particulates contain polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are potent carcinogens and mutagens. Although the impact increases with the exposure level, WHO guidelines have been revised to reflect that there is no safe level of particulates – they have negative health impacts on humans no matter how low the concentration in the atmosphere (WHO 2000). Trends towards higher levels of urban air pollution around the world have been addressed in the more developed economies by more efficient technology and pollution control policies.
