Environmental Science and Technology by Stanley E. Manahan
Book DescriptionFormally established by the EPA nearly 15 years ago, the concept of green chemistry is beginning to come of age. Although several books cover green chemistry and chemical engineering, none of them transfer green principles to science and technology in general and their impact on the future. Defining industrial ecology, Environmental Science and Technology: A Sustainable Approach to Green Science and Technology provides a general overview of green science and technology and their essential role in ensuring environmental sustainability. Written by a leading expert, the book provides the essential background for understanding green science and technology and how they relate to sustainability. In addition to the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere traditionally covered in environmental science books, this book is unique in recognizing the anthrosphere as a distinct sphere of the environment. The author explains how the anthrosphere can be designed and operated in a manner that does not degrade environmental quality and, in most favorable circumstances, may even enhance it. With the current emphasis shifting from end-of-pipe solutions to pollution prevention and control of resource consumption, green principles are increasingly moving into the mainstream. This book provides the foundation not only for understanding green science and technology, but also for taking its application to the next level.

Water Chemistry, Paperback (August 2010)
Focuses on water as a renewable resource from a green chemistry and sustainability perspective. This title deals with the hydrosphere and explains how it relates to the other four environmental spheres. It contains chapters on basic chemistry and organic chemistry useful to those readers whose fundamental knowledge of chemistry is limited.
Environmental Chemistry, Hardback (December 2009)
Chronicles emerging issues such as organochloride pesticides, detergent phosphates, stratospheric ozone depletion, the banning of chlorofluorocarbons, and greenhouse warming. This book emphasizes the importance of the anthrosphere - that part of the environment made and operated by humans and their technologies.
Industrial Ecology, Hardback (February 1999)» View all books by Stanley E. Manahan
Industrial ecology seeks to treat industrial systems in a manner similar to ecological systems in nature. This book examines this innovative technology, using a framework of industrial ecology to cover hazardous wastes from an environmental chemistry perspective. It focuses on environmental science and technology, and industrial ecology.
