A new book from the American Society of Civil Engineersprovides in-depth information on current green technologies associated with sustainable water and storm water management.
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, the ASCE said in a press release.
The 28-chapter collection, entitled Green Technologies for Sustainable Water Management, describes science-based principles and technological advances behind green technologies that can be effective solutions to pressing problems in sustainable water management. In addition to water and waste water management, the book covers aspects of pollution prevention, control, remediation and restoration. The editors explore applying these technologies toward a sustainable society and identify future research and development needs.
The book is intended as a source of comprehensive material on green technologies for sustainable water management for researchers, students, scientists, engineers, government officials and process managers.
