Environmental engineering is a branch of engineering that integrates key principles of ecology, chemistry, biology, hydrology, geology, microbiology, hydraulics and mathematics. It aims to develop solutions for protecting and improving the health of organisms and quality of the environment. It is a sub-discipline of chemical and civil engineering. There is a need to understand the ramifications of our increased adoption of new technologies on the environment. Environmental issues such as global warming, acid rain and environmental pollution are a result of human activities. Environmental engineering seeks to address such local and worldwide phenomena, evaluate the severity of such events, and develop methods of treatment and containment. Its applications lie in the areas of wastewater management, water supply and water treatment, air pollution management, and environmental impact assessment and mitigation. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex advancements in the field of environmental engineering. The topics covered in this extensive book seek to address the emerging technologies developed using environmental engineering studies and their implementation. For someone with an interest and eye for detail, this book covers the most significant topics in this field.
