     This book covers a wide range of topics within enviromental engineering and technologies including:

    • General environmental engineering
    • Clean energy and sustainability
    • Water and wastewater management
    • Public health and environment.

    The application areas range from emerging pollutants of air, soil and water environment, remediation technologies, clean energy and sustainability of biofuels, waste to energy, water and wastewater management, public health and the environment, quality and safety of food production to environmental planning and management and policies for cities and regions. The papers cover both theory and applications, and are focused on a wide range of sectors and problem areas. Integral demonstrations of the use of reliability and environmental engineering are provided in many practical applications concerning major technological approaches.

    Environmental Technology and Innovations will be of interest to academics and professionals working in a wide range of industrial, governmental and academic sectors, including water and waste management, energy generation, fuel production and use, protection of natural heritage, industrial ecology, man health protection and policy making.
