Environmental Engineering Dictionary

Author: C. C. Lee
Publisher: Government Institutes
ISBN: 086587848X
Release Date: 2005-01-01
Genre: Law

Environmental Engineering Dictionary is a comprehensive reference of more than 14,000 technical and regulatory engineering terms that are used in pollution control technologies, monitoring, risk assessment, sampling and analysis, quality control, and environmental engineering and technology. Not only are many newly created terms included in this edition, but the original definitions have also been thoroughly revised to keep pace with the rapid changes in technology. Fuel cell technology terms, special definitions that focus on environmental management systems, and basic environmental calculations have also been added to this edition. Users of this dictionary will find exact and official Environmental Protection Agency definitions for environmental terms that are statute related, regulation related, science related, and engineering related, including terms from the following legal documents: Clean Air Act; Clean Water Act; CERCLA; EPCRA; Federal Facility Compliance Act; Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act; FIFRA; Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendment; OSHA; Pollution Prevention Act; RCRA; Safe Drinking Water Act; Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act; and TSCA. The terms included in this dictionary feature timesaving citations to the definitions' sources, including the Code of Federal Regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Energy.

Conversion of Large Scale Wastes into Value added Products

Author: Justin S.J. Hargreaves
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781466512610
Release Date: 2013-12-12
Genre: Nature

Concern about the fate of waste products produced by a wide range of industrial processes has led to the realization that they may have potential uses and, therefore, value. In an effort to develop more sustainable processes and reduce waste storage, the use of waste as a resource has been gaining attention worldwide. Consequently, there have been a large number of studies aimed at utilizing such wastes. Conversion of Large Scale Wastes into Value-added Products discusses various selected classes of large-scale waste and their current applications and potential future applications. This book provides a snapshot of a continually evolving field, which includes both well-established processes and a drive toward developing strategies for new applications of wastes. The first chapter provides a general introduction to the area of large-scale waste utilization, including drivers for waste recovery, and secondary processes and products for waste reuse. Subsequent chapters discuss applications and potential applications in specific classes of large-scale waste: Various types of waste generated from different metal processing operations Waste generated by coal combustion, a major source of power generation that produces enormous quantities of waste Waste electrical and electronic equipment, important for recycling finite resources and reducing health and environmental risks Food waste, a significant and diverse waste stream with economic and environmental impacts The final chapter presents a general conclusion to the broad subject of waste utilization, summarizing the topics and addressing future trends in waste research.

Extractive Metallurgy 3

Author: Alain Vignes
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118617021
Release Date: 2013-03-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Extractive metallurgy is the art and science of extracting metalsfrom their ores and refining them. The production of metals andalloys from these source materials is still one of the mostimportant and fundamental industries in both developed anddeveloping economies around the world. The outputs and products areessential resources for the metallic, mechanical, electromagnetic,electrical and electronics industries (silicon is treated as ametal for these purposes). This series is devoted to the extraction of metals from ores,concentrates (enriched ores), scraps, and other sources and theirrefining to the state of either liquid metal before casting or tosolid metals. The extraction and refining operations that arerequired may be carried out by various metallurgical reactionprocesses. Extractive Metallurgy 1 deals with the fundamentals ofthermodynamics and kinetics of the reaction processes. ExtractiveMetallurgy 2 focuses on pyrometallurgical, hydrometallurgical,halide and electro-metallurgical (conversion) processes. ExtractiveMetallurgy 3 deals with the industrial processing operations,technologies, and process routes, in other words the sequence ofsteps or operations used to convert the ore to metal. Processes andoperations are studied using the methodology of “chemicalreaction engineering”. As the fundamentals of the art and science of ExtractiveMetallurgy are infrequently taught as dedicated university orengineering schools courses, this series is intended both forstudents in the fields of Metallurgy and Mechanical Engineering whowant to acquire this knowledge, and also for engineers put incharge of the operation of an industrial production unit or thedevelopment of a new process, who will need the basic knowledge ofthe corresponding technology.

An End to Global Warming

Author: L. O. Williams
Publisher: Gulf Professional Publishing
ISBN: 0080440452
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Nature

The 6+ billion inhabitants of earth aspire to higher standards of living. This takes energy. If fossil fuels continue to be the key source of energy their waste product, carbon dioxide, will produce disagreeable changes in the climate. Depletion of fossil fuels will cause the cost of energy and fuel based chemicals to spiral. Climate change and high fuel prices will thwart these aspirations and will increase the probability of lethal international conflicts over energy supplies. We must stop using fossil fuels. Optimistically, we could switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources (solar, wind, etc.). Regrettably these sources are difficult to harvest and unreliable. They cannot, alone, serve as a base load energy supply for humanity. Fission nuclear power yields extremely hazardous waste for which no fully agreeable disposal method has been developed. Laurence Williams applied aerospace systems analysis techniques to seek a new energy system. An End to Global Warming presents his results. He shows why we must stop using fossil fuels and evaluates a host of alternatives to arrive at a robust energy system that will modernize world energy production and protect the environment. A by-product of this system will ameliorate problems associated with supplying potable water and in processing waste. The nations that develop the system described in An End to Global Warming will be gifted with huge financial reward and the pride in knowing that they have preserved the earth for all mankind.

Liquid Metal Processing

Author: I.G. Brodova
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 0415272335
Release Date: 2001-10-04
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The title presents an up-to-date account of the research, development, and applications of metallic alloys, recent research into the structure of charge materials, melt treatment, and casting technologies, and their influence on the properties of melts and ingots. This research has confirmed theoretical concepts about the microheterogenous constitution of metallic melts and has made it possible to manage the quality of castings and ingots of various alloys by their special treatment in the liquid state. The four chapters of the book give theoretical and experimental evidence of the effect of the melt constitution on the structure and properties of the solid metal. Liquid Metal Processing: Applications to Aluminium Alloy Production considers common features of structure formation in aluminium alloys for a wide range of solidification conditions, including ultrasonic and thermal melt treatments and discusses the technological problems of these treatments.
