According to the laws of conservation of mass and energy, matter cannot be created or destroyed. Therefore, all human activities result in some residuals. In this title, originally published in 1978, the authors describe the overall magnitude of the annual residuals problem and apply a residuals-environmental quality management (REQM) analysis specifically to the industrial development of the Ljubljana area in the former Yugoslavia. This title is ideal for students interested in environmental studies and international development issues.
