Essentials of Environmental Engineering is designed for use in an introductory university undergrad course. This book introduces environmental engineering as a profession applying science and math theories to describe and explore the relationship between environmental science and environmental engineering. Environmental engineers work to sustain human existence by balancing human needs from impacts on the environment with the natural state of the environment. In the face of global pollution, diminishing natural resources, increased population growth (especially in disadvantaged countries), geopolitical warfare, global climate change (cyclical and/or human-caused), and other environmental problems, it is clear that we live in a world that is undergoing rapid ecological transformation. Because of these rapid changes, the role of environmental engineering has become increasingly prominent. Moreover, advances in technology have created a broad array of modern environmental issues. To mitigate these issues, we must capitalize on environmental protection and remediation opportunities presented by technology. Essentials of Environmental Engineering addresses these very issues. It was written with the student in mind. Complex topics are explained in an easy-to understand format and style. Numerous examples are given and chapter review questions along with solutions are provided in the text.

The book ‘Basic Environmental Engineering and Elementary Biology’ has been written for the engineering students. It starts with basic concepts of ecology and concerns on environment. It then discusses how the spiraling rate of population growth and the requirements of human beings have led to large-scale deforestation, depletion of the ozone layer, creation of greenhouse effect, acid rain, smog and environmental pollution. The book equips students to manage environment-related issues by showing how technology can be used to control these problems. This well thought-out book on one of the most talked about issues today, can serve as a ground for future environmentalists. It can also be a highly useful reference work for those interested in working towards a better and cleaner environment. Fundamental aspects of environment principles have been explained in great detail, which can be used to manage environment and restore nature’s balance.

Focused on current environmental problems, their causes, effects, and solutions, this text explores the basic nature of the natural systems. Using a technical (quantitative) approach - unusual for a book at the introductory level - it maintains a broad perspective that appeals to all students, but at the same time is useful to those proceeding further in environmental or sanitary engineering. *features unusually broad and balanced coverage of topics: in addition to the traditional topics of water quality, wastewater treatment, and air pollution, it explains the root causes of environmental problems and clarifies the relationships between natural systems and technology. *provides discussions on solid and hazardous wastes, environmental management, and ethics - topics seldom found in a single text. *offers an authoritative perspective on both theory and practice: the authors are world renowned scientists and engineers with academic and practical experience in environmental matters. *NEW - discusses the changing role of technology - e.g., preventive technology as an alternative to traditional end-of-pipe solutions. *NEW - considers recent data on the causes of environmental proble

International experts provide a comprehensive picture of the principles, concepts and methods that are applicable to problems originating from the interaction between the living/non-living environment and mankind. Both the analysis of such problems and the way solutions to environmental problems may work in specific societal contexts are addressed. Disciplinary approaches are discussed but there is a focus on multi- and interdisciplinary methods. A large number of practical examples and case studies are presented. There is special emphasis on modelling and integrated assessment. This book is different because it stresses the societal, cultural and historical dimensions of environmental problems. The main objective is to improve the ability to analyse and conceptualise environmental problems in context and to make readers aware of the value and scope of different methods. Ideal as a course text for students, this book will also be of interest to researchers and consultants in the environmental sciences.

The field of environmental engineering is rapidly emerging into a mainstream engineering discipline. For a long time, environmental engineering has suffered from the lack of a well-defined identity. At times, the problems faced by environmental engineers require knowledge in many engineering fields, including chemical, civil, sanitary, and mechanical engineering. Increased demand for undergraduate training in environmental engineering has led to growth in the number of undergraduate programs offered. Fundamentals of Environmental Engineering provides an introductory approach that focuses on the basics of this growing field. This informative reference provides an introduction to environmental pollutants, basic engineering principles, dimensional analysis, physical chemistry, mass, and energy and component balances. It also explains the applications of these ideas to the understanding of key problems in air, water, and soil pollution.
