Cradle to cradle : remaking the way we make things [Monograph]
McDonough, W. \ Braungart, M. \ 2009
cradle to cradle - life cycle assessment - recycling - waste management

Nowadays, most of us recycle, but what about industry, where the real damage is done? Th authors challenge the notion that human industry must damage the world. Instead, they look to nature and find a production system which mimics nature's model to our commercial and environmental advantage, a system in which waste equals food.

Elements of physical chemistry [Monograph] - 4th edCompanion website - Companion website
Atkins, P. \ Paula, J. de \ cop. 2005
physical chemistry - textbooks

The coverage of the fourth edition has been strengthened by the addition of two new chapters and an extension in the scope of others, yet the focus remains tightly on what is essential. --- the essential mathematical concepts are not avoided, but carefully introduced. --- includes numerous worked examples, each with a strategy section, which suggests how the problem should be attempted, and a self test so that students can apply the procedure that has been presented and test their understanding. --- application boxes show how the principles of physical chemistry are applied in materials chemistry, environmental chemistry, chemical engineering, and biochemistry.

Elements of physical chemistry [Monograph] - 5th edTable of contents
Atkins, P.W. \ Paula, J. de \ 2009
physical chemistry - textbooks

The book has maths support throughout: the authors help readers apply mathematical skills. Explanatory bubbles are used to help readers interpret and use mathematical expressions; also provided are brief illustrations of how to use equations, fully worked-out examples, and many practice questions. There is an emphasis on practical context: concepts are illustrated with examples from everyday experience, plus more than 20 extended insights into real-life applications in industry, biochemistry, and environmental chemistry.

Renewable energy : power for a sustainable future [Monograph] - 3rd ed
Boyle, G. \ 2012
renewable energy - energy - solar energy - sustainability - economics - energy sources - environmental impact - renewable resources - textbooks

The provision of sustainable energy supplies for an expanding and increasingly productive world is one of the major issues facing civilisation today. This book examines both the practical and economic potential of the "renewable energy" sources to meet this challenge. The underlying physical and technological principles behind deriving power from direct solar (solar thermal and photovoltaics), indirect solar (biomass, hydro, wind and wave) and non-solar (tidal and geothermal) energy sources are explained, within the context of their environmental impacts, their economics and their future prospects.

Sharing nature's interest : ecological footprints as an indicator of sustainability [Monograph]Companion website
Chambers, N. \ Simmons, C. \ Wackernagel, M. \ 2000
natural resources - resource management - sustainability - indicators - environmental assessment

Every organism, be it a bacterium, whale or person, has an impact on the earth. We all rely upon the products and services of nature, both to supply us with raw materials and to assimilate our wastes. The impact we have on our environment is related to the "quantity" of nature that we use or "appropriate" to sustain our consumption patterns. The key question is whether this load exceeds what nature can sustainably support.

The dynamics of heat [Monograph]
Fuchs, H.U. \ 1996
thermodynamics

Based on a course given to beginning physics, chemistry, and engineering students at the Winterthur Polytechnic Institute, this text approaches the fundamentals of thermodynamics from the viewpoint of continuum mechanics. By describing physical processes in terms of the flow and balance of physical quantities, the book provides a unified approach to hydraulics, electricity, mechanics and thermodynamics. In this way it becomes clear that the entropy is the fundamental property that is transported in thermal processes and that the temperature is its measure. Previous knowledge of thermodynamics is not required, but readers should be familiar with basic electricity, mechanics, and chemistry and should have some knowledge of elementary calculus. Both the theory and applications are included as well as many exercises and solved problems from various fields of science and engineering.

The dynamics of heat : a unified approach to thermodynamics and heat transfer [Monograph] - 2nd ed
Fuchs, H.U. \ cop. 2010
heat transfer - thermodynamics - thermal efficiency - thermal expansion - radiation - textbooks - entropy - Thermodynamics

Based on courses for students of science, engineering, and systems science this text approaches the fundamentals of thermodynamics from the point of view of continuum physics. By describing physical processes in terms of the flow and balance of physical quantities, the author achieves a unified approach to hydraulics, electricity, mechanics and thermodynamics. The second edition includes new material on dynamical chemical processes, thermoelectricity, and explicit dynamical modeling of thermal and chemical processes.
