Recyclingtechnik: Fachbuch für Lehre und Praxis (German Edition)

Das Recycling von Altgeräten, Werkstoffen und anderen Materialien leistet einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Ressourcenschonung, Schadstoffbeseitigung und Energieeinsparung sowie zur Reduzierung von Deponievolumen. Die einsetzbare Recyclingtechnik ist dabei eine grundlegende Voraussetzung für die wirtschaftliche Realisierung der Prozesse.

Solid Waste Management in the World's Cities: Water and Sanitation in the World's Cities 2010

In our swiftly urbanizing international society, stable waste administration might be a key problem dealing with the entire world's towns. sturdy Waste administration within the World's towns offers a clean point of view and new info on one of many largest matters in city improvement. utilizing the framework of built-in Sustainable Waste administration (ISWM), the document brings jointly unparalleled learn from 22 towns throughout six continents.

Analysis and Fate of Surfactants in the Aquatic Environment, Volume 40 (Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry)

An knowing of the destiny and behavior of natural chemical compounds, corresponding to surfactants, within the surroundings is a prerequisite for the sustainable improvement of human future health and ecosystems. As surfactants are being produced in large quantities, it is very important have a close wisdom approximately their lifetime within the atmosphere, their biodegradability in wastewater remedy crops and in traditional waters, and their ecotoxicity.

15 The common name for the report titled, “Shaping the twenty-first century: The Contribution of Development Co-operation,” adopted at a High-Level Meeting of the OECD/DAC. The report analyzes the experience of development assistance by advanced countries and the role of international society over the past 50 years, and puts forth proposals for development assistance going forward. Halve, between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger 1-C In Sub-Saharan Africa, the school enrollment rate in primary education increased to 76 % in 2010 from 58 % in 1999.

This chapter discusses field experimentation, frame analysis, intermediary theories, and examination amid reflection from a practical perspective. Conceptually, the process of objectivizing objectivization could entail infinite objectivization, or infinite regress. However, practically, as engineers actively engage the object, their engagement can itself be changed by the object. Under such circumstances it becomes impossible to strictly differentiate the subject and the object, and the actor and what is acted upon, and researchers require the reflection of engineers continuously questioning the appropriateness of the analysis itself.

It is extremely difficult to implement policies that satisfy all of the related actors and diverse interests. The question of legitimacy—which perspective’s opinions and desires will be recognized as appropriate—therefore becomes important. In securing this legitimacy, a key role is played by an entity that understands the 2 Human Security Engineering as a Practical Approach 43 particularities of the interested parties and their concerns regarding human security, and then evaluates levels of human security infrastructure preparation from a big-picture view.
