Drawing on the wealth of information and expertise available in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Green Chemistry Book series, this set of books demonstrates a sustainable approach to some of the environmental and technical challenges facing the world today. Topics include water remediation, recovery of elements from electronic waste, and re-using food co-products.This set contains the following volumes:Sustainable Solutions for Modern Economies (ISBN 9781847559050) 524 pages, 2009Edited by Rainer HöferOutlines the contribution of chemistry and renewable chemical or biological resources to the sustainability concept and potential resolution of the world's energy problems. Element Recovery and Sustainability (ISBN 9781849736169) 270 pages, 2013Edited by Andrew HuntThis book will be essential reading for researchers in academia and industry tackling sustainable element recovery, as well as postgraduate students in chemistry, engineering and biotechnology. Environmental scientists and policy makers will also benefit from reading about potential benefits of recovery from waste streams.The Economic Utilisation of Food Co-Products (ISBN 9781849736152) 270 pages, 2013Edited by Abbas Kazmi and Peter ShuttleworthNo longer considered simply as "waste", many food co-products are being identified as economically-viable raw materials and their potential is enhanced by modern processing technologies and the biorefinery concept.Biomass for Sustainable Applications (ISBN 9781849736008) 430 pages, 2013Edited by Sara Gaspard and Mohamed C NcibiThis book guides the reader to identifying the local bioresources which could be valorized and chosen for the remediation of a pollution-related problem or a response to an energetic need.Green Materials for Sustainable Water Remediation and Treatment (ISBN 9781849736213) 259 pages, 2013Edited by Anuradha Mishra and James ClarkGreen and sustainable water remediation is a rapidly growing field of interest to governments and corporations alike, with considerable input from academics, environmental consultants and public interest groups.
