Description

Growing awareness and focus on environmental issues such as climate change, energy use, and loss of non-renewable resources have brought about a greater need for research that provides potential solutions to these problems. The field of environmental engineering has been brought increasingly to the forefront of scholarly research and, alongside it, environmentally-friendly, or “green,” technologies as well.

Advances in Environmental Engineering & Green Technologies (AEEGT) Book Series is a mouthpiece for this research, publishing books that discuss topics within environmental engineering or that deal with the interdisciplinary field of green technologies.
