Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The complete, hands-on guide to sustainable development <p>Today's process industries must develop natural resources withinan eco-friendly framework that balances current demand with futureneed. Realizing this goal necessitates global vigilance of threekey areas?people, planet, and prosperity?known as theTriple Bottom Line or, simply, the Triple P.</p> <p> Sustainable Development in the Process Industries detailshow worldwide implementation of sustainable processes inpresent-day industries can positively influence the Triple P goingforward by lowering poverty, reducing pollution, and conservingresources. This in-depth guide includes:</p> <p>Real-world case studies and examples</p> <p>Individual chapters written by industry experts</p> <p>Application in industries such as petroleum and fuel, food,recycling, mineral processing, and water processing</p> <p>Focus on the micro (molecules, unit operations, processes) tothe macro (industrial sites, value chains, regions, the world)</p> <p>Providing lessons with practical application rather than puretheory, Sustainable Development in the Process Industries offers sound solutions to social, ecological, and economicchallenges imperative to assuring our planet's well-being forgenerations.</p>
