The International Journal of Sustainable Engineering (IJSE) aims to provide engineers from a variety of backgrounds with access to a valuable source of cross-disciplinary information for promoting sustainable practices. One of the principle objectives of the journal is to stimulate innovation and development of sustainable products and production technologies, as well as novel services and business models. A key consideration is also to encourage the generation of timely, effective regulations and educational programmes to support various corporate and social stakeholders – from engineers to managers, and from policy makers to consumers.
ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering invites Letters, Articles, Features, and Perspectives (Reviews) that address challenges of sustainability in the chemical enterprise and advance principles of Green Chemistry and Green Engineering. Examples of topics in the journal's scope include: Green Chemistry, Green Manufacturing and Engineering, Biomass or Wastes as Resources, Alternative Energy, Life-Cycle Assessment
The International Journal of Sustainable Construction Engineering Technology (IJSCET) is a double blind peer-reviewed journal, in collaboration with Concrete Society of Malaysia and Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. It is published twice a year (June and December). It is a forum for the publication and dissemination of original work which contributes to the understanding of the main disciplines underpinning the sustainable construction engineering area. Original contributions giving insight into engineering practices and fundamental in sustainable construction engineering form the core of the journal contents. The journal publishes a wide range of research and application papers which describe laboratory and numerical investigations or report on full scale projects. International Journal of Sustainable Construction Engineering Technology also publishes detailed case studies and review articles, as well as short communications and discussions.
Sustainable Engineering Products and Manufacturing Technologies provides the reader with a detailed look at the latest research into technologies that reduce the environmental impacts of manufacturing. All points where engineering decisions can influence the environmental sustainability of a product are examined, including the sourcing of non-toxic, sustainable raw materials, how to choose manufacturing processes that use energy responsibly and minimize waste, and how to design products to maximize reusability and recyclability. The subject of environmental regulation is also addressed, with references to both the US and EU and the future direction of legislation. Finally, sustainability factors are investigated alongside other product considerations, such as quality, price, manufacturability and functionality, to help readers design processes and products that are economically viable and environmentally friendly. Helps readers integrate product sustainability alongside functionality, manufacturability and cost Describes the latest technologies for energy efficient and low carbon manufacturing Discusses relevant environmental regulations around the globe and speculates on future directions
Sustainable Engineering: Principles and Implementation provides a comprehensive overview of the interdisciplinary field of sustainability as it applies to engineering and methods for implementation of sustainable practices. Due to increasing constraints on resources and on the environment and effects of climate change, engineers are being faced with new challenges. While it is generally believed that the concepts of sustainable design must be adhered to so that future generations may be protected, the execution and practice of these concepts are very difficult. It is therefore the focus of this book to give both a conceptual understanding as well as practical skills to apply sustainable engineering principles to engineering design. This book introduces relevant theory, principles, and ethical expectations for engineers, presents concepts related to industrial ecology, green engineering, and eco-design, and details frameworks that indicate the challenges and constraints of applying sustainable development principles. It describes the tools, protocols, and guidelines that are currently available through case studies and examples from around the world. The book is designed to be used by undergraduate and graduate students in any engineering program (with particular emphasis on civil, environmental and chemical engineering) and other programs in which sustainability is taught, in addition to practicing scientists and engineers and all others concerned with the sustainability of products, projects and processes. Specific Features: Discusses sources of contaminants and their impact on the environment Addresses sustainable assessment techniques, policies, protocols and guidelines Describes new tools and technologies for achieving sustainable engineering Includes social and economic sustainability dimensions Offers case studies demonstrating implementation of sustainable engineering practices
This book discusses recent developments in renewable and sustainable materials from a green technology perspective and how these materials interact with the environment. It highlights the fundamental processes involved in the production of renewable and sustainable materials, including chemical and biological approaches as well as these materials' potential application as green technological option. Written in a didactic style, it offers a guide and insights into renewable and sustainable materials. Each chapter provides in-depth technical information on the material's theory and its applications. The book shows how new materials may help us solve human and environmental issues in the future and suggests where current research may lead.
Is "zero waste engineering" possible? This book outlines how to achieve zero waste engineering, following natural pathways that are truly sustainable. Using methods that have been developed in various areas for sustainability purposes, such as new mathematical models, recyclable material selection, and renewable energy, the authors probe the principles of zero waste engineering and how it can be applied to construction, energy production, and many other areas of engineering. This groundbreaking new volume: Explores new scientific principles on which sustainability and zero waste engineering can be based Presents new models for energy efficiency, cooling processes, and natural chemical and material selection in industrial applications and business Explains how "green buildings" and "green homes" can be efficiently built and operated with zero waste Offers case histories and successful experiments in sustainability and zero-waste engineering Ideal for: Engineers and scientists of all industries, including the energy industry, construction, the process industries, and manufacturing. Chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, petroleum engineers, process engineers, civil engineers, and many other types of engineers would all benefit from reading this exciting new volume.
