Sustainable Construction Materials by Ravindra K. Dhir OBE


Original Title: Sustainable Construction Materials

Sustainable Construction Materials: Municipal Incinerated Bottom Ash discusses the global use of virgin aggregates and CO2 polluter Portland cement. Given the global sustainability agenda, much of the demand for these two sets of materials can be substantially reduced through the appropriate use of waste materials, thereby conserving natural resources, energy and CO2 emissions. Realistically, this change can only be realized and sustained through engineering ingenuity and new concepts in design. Although a great deal of research has been published over the last 50 years, it remains fragmented and ineffective. This book develops a single global knowledge-base, encouraging greater use of selected waste streams. The focus of massive systematic reviews is to encourage the uptake of recycled secondary materials (RSM) by the construction industry and guide researchers to recognize what is already known regarding waste. Provides an extensive source of valuable database information, supported by an exhaustive list of globally-based published literature over the last 40-50 years Offer an analysis, evaluation, repackaging and modeling of existing knowledge on sustainable construction practices Provides a wealth of knowledge for use in many sectors relating to the construction profession

Sustainable Construction by Thomas D. Dyer


Original Title: Sustainable Construction

Opportunities for developing sustainable utilisation are becoming increasingly advantageous, and the recovery of maximum value waste materials is a key concern in this process. One of the most effective approaches to value recovery is through the genreation of heat and power from waste incineration are significant, disposal of the ash generated is the main difficulty to justifying this process as a wholly sustainable waste management solution. This is the Proceedings of the major international workshop that took place at the University of Dundee during March 2000. Papers are included by experts in the field of sustainable construction showing the latest developments in the processing and use of incinerator ash in the construction industry.

Waste Materials In Construction by G.R. Woolley


Original Title: Waste Materials In Construction

This volume presents the proceedings of the International Conference on The Science and Engineering of Recycling for Environmental Protection (WASCON 2000), of which a number of themes have been identified. All are inter-related and inter-dependent in so far as potential users of secondary, recovered or recycled material have to be assured that the material is environmentally safe and stable. It is the environmental challenge that forms a leading theme for the conference, and the themes of quality assurance and quality control support this aspect. In terms of use of 'recovered' materials, science and engineering play important and inter-dependent roles and this is reflected in themes which form the very core of the conference. Of no less importance is control of land contamination and how we propose to model for the long term impact of our aims. However dutiful and competent our ideas and studies, there has to be a measure of control and the role of legislation forms the final theme of WASCON 2000. The breadth of studies being undertaken world-wide and the innovative ideas that are expressed in papers submitted are worthy of this important subject. It is also interesting to note that papers were offered from 30 countries, a sign of the increasing awareness of the need to preserve our natural resources and utilize to the full those with which we are more familiar. This book will contribute to the understanding of and solution of environmental problems concerning the re-use of waste materials in construction.

Sustainable Construction Materials Sewage Sludge Ash by Ravindra K. Dhir Obe


Original Title: Sustainable Construction Materials Sewage Sludge Ash

This book, as part of a series of five, aims to promote the use of sustainable construction materials. It is different to the norm and its uniqueness lies in developing a data matrix sourced from 525 publications, contributed by 1107 authors from 442 institutions in 48 countries from 1970 to 2016, on the subject of sewage sludge ash as a construction material, and systematically analysing, evaluating and modelling this information for use in cement, concrete, ceramics, geotechnics and road pavement applications. Related environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed. The work establishes what is already known and can be used. It would also help to avoid repetitive research and save valuable resources, which can instead be directed towards new research to progress the use of sustainable construction materials. The book is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner. As an excellent reference source, the book is particularly suited for researchers, academics, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, developers, and certifying and regulatory authorities, seeking to promote sustainability within the construction sector. Provides an extensive source of valuable database information, supported by an exhaustive and comprehensively organised list of globally-based published literature spanning over 40-50 years, up to 2016, with >5000 referencesOffers an analysis, evaluation, repackaging and modelling of existing knowledge, which should help to encourage better and more responsible use of waste materials in constructionProvides a wealth of knowledge for use in many sectors relating to the construction profession

Energy 2000 by Naomi Balaban


Original Title: Energy 2000

Energy 2000, proceedings from the 8th in an international series of global energy forums, is now available in book format. These papers provide a broad-based perspective on not only technical energy developments, but a detailed examination into other aspects such as economic and policy assessments, global energy issues, energy efficiency and conservation, as well as architecture and international law. Also presented are individual and collected views on renewables, oil and gas, coal and nuclear. ENERGEX '2000, the 8th in an international series of global energy forums, was held in Las Vegas, July 23-28, 2000. The first in the series was held in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in cooperation, coordination and communication with technical societies, federal and provincial governments and industry. The majority of papers presented at the 8th global energy forum are contained in these proceedings and represent over 200 papers from 45 countries out of a total of over 400 accepted abstracts. These papers will provide the reader with a broad based perspective on not only technical energy developments but, as consistent with the International Energy Foundation's objectives, a detailed examination into other aspects such as economic and policy assessments, global energy issues such as global climatic change, energy efficiency and conservation, architecture and international law. ENERGEX '2000 also provided the opportunity for researchers internationally to present their individual and collected views related to the diverse sources of energy available to mankind. These sources include renewables, oil and gas, coal, and nuclear. From ENERGEX 2000 has resulted this new book! Since the inception of the ENERGEX series in 1982, an open door policy has been established so that any researcher from either the developed or the emerging nations will have an equal opportunity to present their individual or collected technical, economic or human dimensional assessments and analyses on an equal footing. Through this participation, researchers worldwide are provided with a wider range of opportunity to expand our horizons with respect to the continued use of fossil energies and nuclear energy combined with energy conservation and efficiency. This opens the door of opportunity in the 21st century with respect to the rapid developments and utilization of renewable energies and fuel cells. Integrated within this global energy forum were inputs from academia, industry and government on specific issues related to carbon sequestration, fuel cells, fossil fuels, hydrogen and the role of the present day energy standards of oil and gas, coal and nuclear energies In expanding the global energy picture, the Foundation developed the conference with the theme "Energy-International Cooperation, Coordination and Communication: The Beginning of a New Millennium." Consistent with this theme we are pleased that ENERGEX '2000 developed the program in concert with the Nevada Test Site Development Corporation (NTS).

Environmental And Health Impact Of Solid Waste Management Activities by Royal Society of Chemistry (Great Britain)


Original Title: Environmental And Health Impact Of Solid Waste Management Activities

Solid waste management issues are a highly emotive topic. Disposal costs need to be balanced against environmental impact, which often results in heated public debate. Disposal options such as incineration and landfill, whilst unpopular with both the public and environmental pressure groups, do not pose the same environmental and health risks as, for example, recycling plants. This book, written by international experts, discusses the various waste disposal options that are available (landfill, incineration, composting, recycling) and then reviews their impact on the environment, and particularly on human health. Comprehensive and highly topical, Environmental and Health Impact of Solid Waste Management Activities will make a strong contribution to scientific knowledge in the area, and will be of value to scientists and policy-makers in particular.
