Engineering in Environmental Management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

To gain an appreciation for the basic engineering principles is critical to environmental management professionals due to the breadth and complexity of environmental problems. This chapter provides an introduction to engineering in environmental management, with an emphasis on environmental engineering. Following a brief discussion on engineering and environmental management, the concepts of materials and energy balances, which are the basic tools for understanding environmental processes and solving environmental problems, are first introduced. Thereafter, water resources, municipal solid waste management, and air resources in environmental engineering are discussed in details. Theory and design issues are integrated in the topics on physical, chemical, and biochemical operations and processes.
