Building on the first principles of environmental chemistry, engineering, and ecology, this volume fills the need for an advanced textbook introducing the modern, integrated environmental management approach, with a view towards long-term sustainability and within the framework of international regulations.
As such, it presents the classic technologies alongside innovative ones that are just now coming into widespread use, such as photochemical technologies and carbon dioxide sequestration. Numerous case studies from the fields of air, water and soil engineering describe real-life solutions to problems in pollution prevention and remediation, as an aid to practicing professional skills.
With its tabulated data, comprehensive list of further reading, and a glossary of terms, this book doubles as a reference for environmental engineers and consultants.

Atmosphere: Biondication and biomonitoring are innovative means for monitoring and controlling environmental situations: the case of atmospheric emission surveillance
Atmosphere: CO2 reduction
Soils and sediments: Phytoremediation by use of organisms
Soils and sediments: Ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) - its chemical properties, persistence, ecological hazards and methods of removal
Water: Reactive walls
Water: Pharmaceuticals in the environment - special emphasis to Diclofenac (Voltaren) - an analgetic agent with difficult and interesting properties
Energy: The need for Renewable Energy
Bernd Markert, born 1958, is Professor of Environmental Technology and former director of the International Graduate School Zittau (Germany). His professional interests include the biogeochemistry of trace substances in the water/soil/plant system, instrumental analysis of chemical elements, eco- and human toxicology of hazardous substances, pollution control by use of bioindicators and technologies for waste management, environmental restoration, and remedial action on soils. Professor Markert has so far (co)published 18 books.
Simone Wünschmann, born 1967, is an environmental scientist. She works on human and ecotoxicology with emphasis on bioindication of trace elements in mammals and human milk. Dr. Wünschmann has so far (co)published 2 books
