This ground-breaking text looks at the ways of integrating sustainability aspects into science and engineering. In providing an all-round sustainability education, it teaches students within engineering and environmental science the implications of their decisions on the environment.

Taking a life cycle approach to address economic, environmental and social issues, the book presents a series of practical case studies drawn from a range of industrial sectors, including water, energy, waste, chemicals, glass and mining and minerals. The key features of the book include:


  • Case studies that provide real-world and practical examples for readers to work through

  • Coverage of various sustainability issues in both developed and developing countries
  • Exploration of the scientific and technical aspects of each issue together with consideration of the economic, environmental and social ramifications

Sustainable Development in Practice: Case Studies for Engineers and Scientists is essential reading for all engineers and scientists concerned with sustainable development. In particular, it provides key reading and learning materials for undergraduate and postgraduate students reading environmental, chemical, civil or mechanical engineering, manufacturing and design, environmental science, green chemistry and environmental management. This book’s accessible style also makes it of interest to the general reader who is engaged with the sustainability debate.
