Beschreibung:

The new Millennium has barely begun when we have been hit by two calamities which seem more daunting than any faced by us in the past - global warming and Ocean acidification. Whereas acid rain, ozone hole, and other Consequences of human induced Pollution threatened several Large areas, they also left several other large areas, out of their range of influence. But the twin maladies of global warming and ocean acidification are set to adversely impact every nook and corner of our planet. Now, more quickly and comprehensively than ever before, we have to develop Technologies which use less energy, and capture rather than release `greenhouse` (global-warming) gases. Out of this backdrop emerges the present book. It illustrates the approaches and the technologies with which mankind hopes to combat the multiple threats of global, regional and local Environmental problems. It has been estimated that already the World Population is so high and the Rate at which we are utilizing the Natural resources is so fast that we need one more planet of the size and attributes of the Earth to sustain ourselves for long. If the population increases - which it rapidly is doing - we would need a third earth, and then more. But there is only one earth! This leaves us with no option but to `manage` within this earth. To do it, we have to think `out of the box` and work out innovative strategies to minimize resource use while maximizing Efficiency of every system. This book orients us in that direction. The authors Dr. Tasneem Abbasi and Prof. S.A. Abbasi have had training and Professional experience in some of the most prestigious Institutions in the world. Their command over the subject as well as their ability to make Complex concepts Look simple and interesting are reflected in every line of the book. This book will be exceedingly useful to students of environmental sciences, environmental engineering, and biotechnology. Given its emphasis on current environmental issues and R&D trends it may also be of direct Interest to researchers, Governmental agencies, NGOs, and those preparing for competitive examinations or Job interviews.
