Sustainable Solid Waste Management describes basic principles and recent advances for handling solid waste in an environmentally sustainable way. Solid waste poses problems of quantity—the sheer amount is increasing around the world—but also of environmental impact, especially with the introduction of materials harmful to ecosystems.
This volume uses a global lens to examine all aspects of the solid waste, including waste minimization, waste as a resource, appropriate disposal, and efficient systems fostered by effective public policy. Written by leading experts, the 22 chapters analyze the critical issues to be considered during the various stages of a waste management program.

Green Technologies for Sustainable Water Management describes science-based principles and technological advances behind green technologies that can be effective solutions to pressing environmental problems. Today’s challenge for sustainable water management is to develop environmentally friendly, economically viable, and energy-efficient processes for treating and preserving the world’s limited water resources. Successful approaches will provide a high removal-efficiency of pollutants and nutrient recovery while also reducing the carbon footprint, minimizing waste, and protecting human health and the environment.

Nanomaterials in the Environment offers the most current knowledge on the environmental impact of materials and products developed using nanotechnology. Nanomaterials are revolutionizing electronics, medicine, transportation, and many other industries, but they pose risks to living beings and ecosystems that are barely understood. The 23 chapters in this book consider the science of nanomaterials, their behavior in the environment, risk assessment and toxicology, and the future of nanomaterials.

Forward Osmosis: Fundamentals and Applications presents the principles and implementation challenges of low-energy desalination technology for producing potable and nonpotable water. In forward osmosis (FO), a saline feed solution passes through a semipermeable membrane toward a draw solution; water then may be separated from the draw solution. Although FO technology has advanced in recent years, much work remains to be done to develop suitable membranes and draw solutions that can easily and efficiently produce drinking water.
