Bentham Science Publishers

Our publication “Sustainability Studies: Environmental and Energy Managementwill guide the students and researchers to identify issues related to protection of environmental and energy that might represent future solutions in critical areas of environmental and energy management, to provide an appropriate environmental and energy management in the living things and public human being in the earth of the near future.

The book “Sustainability Studies: Environmental and Energy Management“ focuses on the industrialization and its drawback in the near future caused by human being in the environmental and energy related issues. Also this book chapter content makes an attempt to highlight the impacts created to the environment and also insist to meet the increasing demand of energy in near future. In order to protect the environmental we need to focus the Green Engineering and technologies on the designing of materials, processes, systems and devices with the objective of minimizing overall environmental impact (including energy utilization and waste production) throughout the entire life cycle of a product or process, from initial raw materials used in manufacture to ultimate disposal of materials that cannot be reused or recycled at the end. Also it need steps to be taken by implementing the policies, regulations and planning. If any automatic computing techniques can be adopted to regulate the environmental and energy protection that should be implemented and monitored accordingly.
