Environmental Engineering - Concordia University Libraries Recent Acquisitions

Titles in the call number range TD (Environmental Engineering) that were added to the Concordia University Libraries collection in the last 60 days.

  • Electronic waste and printed circuit board recycling technologies / Muammer Kaya

  • Environmental reporting and management in Africa / edited by Venancio Tauringana
    TD 194.7 E58 2019eb
    Environment management and protection are top global priorities. Between cyclones affecting more than 2.6 million people across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, and tornadoes ripping through the Mid-West in the United States, climate change is front and centre in the public mind. The six papers in this volume of Advances in Environmental Management and Accounting provide much needed information for academics, practitioners and policy makers about environmental accounting and management in Africa. Despite one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) being Climate Action, very little is known about environmental accounting and management practices in Africa. Including research based on South Africa and Nigeria, two of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, the research here is a significant contribution to understanding these practices.
    This volume asks: how useful is environmental and social information to regulators, investors, financial institutions and practitioners? To what extend do food producers report on their water use given that water shortage is among the top 10 global risks? What influences the adoption of environmental management techniques? How do different environmental management practices affect the financial performance of Small and Medium-Sized enterprises? Are environmental management and reporting regulations complied with and if not why?

  • Microbiological sensors for the drinking water industry / edited by Torben Lund Skovhus and Bo Højris
    TD 384 M53 2018eb
    This most up-to date book addresses the interdisciplinary area of drinking water quality monitoring by microbiological sensors. It is edited and written by leading water professionals and experts, and binds together interests and competences within sensing technology, system behavior, business needs, legislation, education, data handling, and intelligent response algorithms. The book contains chapters on:- the history of water monitoring and early sensors- the current landscape of microbiological sensors and different measuring concepts - needs from the water industry - detailed description of several state-of-the-art sensor technologies- water industry case stories with operator experience - examples of on-line data collection and data handling - microbiological sensors applied in education and industry workshops- regulator aspects of introducing microbiological sensors It is the hope that the book will be widely used by water utility managers, technical staff working with drinking water safety, educators in the field of water quality and regulators in this field worldwide. Furthermore, that it will help bridge the gaps between these diverse and otherwise differently oriented water professionals.

  • Drought preparedness and response / by Chris Brown and Lisa Maddaus
    TD 223 D76 2019eb

  • Biofouling of membrane systems / Szilard Bucs [and others]
    Because of the uneven distribution of fresh water in time and space and the increasing human population, a large number of regions are experiencing water scarcity and stress. Membrane-based desalination technologies like reverse osmosis have the potential to solve the fresh water crisis in coastal areas. However, in many cases membraneperformance is restricted by biofouling.Biofouling of Membrane Systems gives a comprehensive overview on the state of the art strategies to control biofouling in spiral wound reverse osmosis membrane systems and point to possible future research directions. Despite the fact that much research and development has been done to overcome biofouling in spiral wound membrane systems used for water treatment, biofouling is still a major practical problem causing performance decline and increased energy demand. Biofouling of Membrane Systems is divided into three sections including modelling and numerical analysis, non-destructive characterization and feed spacer geometry optimization. It focuses on the development of biomass in the feed channel of the membrane module and its effect on pressure dropand hydrodynamics.This book can be used to develop an integral strategy to control biofouling in spiral wound membrane systems. An overview of several potential complementary approaches to solve biofouling is given and an integrated approach for biofouling control and feed spacer design is proposed.

  • Oil spill studies : healing the ocean, biomarking and the law / edited by Frédéric Muttin

    The containment of pollution by physical defenses is the first step in restoring the ocean to its natural state. The first two chapters of Oil Spill Studies: Healing the Ocean, Biomarking and the Law describes the feedback on seven experiments made on the East Atlantic Ocean. The first chapter concerns semi-open sites while the second focuses on open environment directly linked to the ocean. The third chapter examines pollution from a French harbor marina and its effects on the local biodiversity. The book provides a methodology to quantify biological contamination coming from heavy metal releases into the environment. Chapter four provides the state-of-the-art in the science of a mid-depth-living fish species affected by the treatment of oil pollution by chemical dispersion. In a similar way, the fifth chapter addresses new explored and exploited ocean with extreme environments such as the Arctic and deep sea. The sixth and final chapter provides a lawyer's analysis on the subject.
