CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Revised, updated, and rewritten where necessary, but keeping the clear writing
and organizational style that made previous editions so popular, Elements of
Environmental Engineering: Thermodynamics and Kinetics, Third Edition contains
new problems and new examples that better illustrate theory. The new edition
contains examples with practical flavor such as global warming, ozone layer
depletion, nanotechnology, green chemistry, and green engineering. With
detailed theoretical discussion and principles illuminated by numerical
examples, this book fills the gaps in coverage of the principles and
applications of kinetics and thermodynamics in environmental engineering and
New topics covered include:
Green Chemistry and Engineering Biological Processes Life Cycle Analysis
Global Climate Change
The author discusses the applications of thermodynamics and kinetics and
delineates the distribution of pollutants and the interrelationships between
them. His demonstration of the theoretical foundations of chemical property
estimations gives students an in depth understanding of the limitations of
thermodynamics and kinetics as applied to environmental fate and transport
modeling and separation processes for waste treatment. His treatment of the
material underlines the multidisciplinary nature of environmental engineering.
This book is unusual in environmental engineering since it deals exclusively
with the applications of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics in environmental
processes. The book’s multimedia approach to fate and transport modeling and in
pollution control design options provides a science and engineering treatment
of environmental problems.
