By Martine Poux, Patrick Cognet, Christophe Gourdon

This booklet has been edited via Martine Poux, Patrick Cognet and Christophe Gourdon from the Laboratoire de Génie Chimique/ENSIACET, Toulouse. It offers an ensemble of tools and new chemical engineering routes that may be built-in in commercial processing for more secure, extra versatile, inexpensive, and ecological creation procedures within the context of eco-friendly and sustainable engineering.

Different tools for bettering procedure functionality are handled, including:

• Eco-design and procedure optimization by way of systemic approaches

• New applied sciences for intensification

• Radical switch of business techniques through using new media and new routes for chemical


These numerous equipment are totally illustrated with examples and commercial instances, making this ebook program oriented.

LEED Practices, Certification, and Accreditation Handbook

Followed within the usa and several nations, LEED? certification is the famous average for measuring construction sustainability. reaching LEED? own certification or undertaking certification is how one can exhibit that the venture is actually ''green. '' Written via an architect with over 30 years of foreign adventure, this publication presents architects, designers, development proprietors, and building engineers with a simple to appreciate consultant to the nuts and bolts of LEED?

Ecological Effects of Water-level Fluctuations in Lakes (Developments in Hydrobiology)

So much aquatic ecosystems have variable water degrees. those water-level fluctuations (WLF) have a number of results at the organisms above and less than the waterline. typical WLF styles in lakes warrantly either productiveness and biodiversity, whereas premature floods and droughts can have unwanted effects. Human affects on WLF have resulted in a stabilization of the water degrees of many lakes by means of hydraulic rules, premature drawdown as a result of water use, or floods as a result of water unlock from hydropower vegetation within the catchments.

Wassertechnologie: Fällung · Flockung · Separation

Fallung, Flockung und die dazugehorige Abtrennung sind "Arbeitspferde' der Wasseraufbereitung, ebenso wie die mechanisch-biologische Behandlung das wichtigste Grundverfahren der Abwasserreinigung ist. Mit zunehmender In tensivierung der Wassernutzung und der sich ergebenden Verkiirzung des natiirlichen Wasserkreislaufes verlieren sich die Unterschiede zwischen Wasser aufbereitung und Wasserreinigung mehr und mehr.

X denotes the chemical substance initiating the acidification, and the molar stoichiometric ratio α represents the ratio of the number of moles of H+ per mole of X. Acidification is usually expressed in terms of mass (ηi, mole H+/kg): hi = ai Mi where Mi denotes the molecular weight of X (kg i/mole i). As mentioned before, a reference compound SO2 is used to express the acidification potential: h APi = i hSO2 Ozone depletion potential (ODP) in the stratosphere is based on the calculation of the variation in time and space of O3 concentration (δ [O3]) due to the emission of a specific gas with respect to the same amount for a reference compound, trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11, CCl3F).

Waste Manag. 20: 605–615. 2 Process Optimization Strategies Jean-Pierre Corriou and Catherine Azzaro-Pantel Introduction Many authors have taken an interest in the design of chemical processes as they became conscious about the environment and numerous methodologies have been proposed (Cano-Ruiz and McRae 1999). An important conclusion of their review is that the adoption of a strategy that considers aggressions against the environment as a design objective and not simply as a constraint on the operations allows us to imagine alternative processes that are efficient both at the economic and environmental levels.
