Design with Energy: The Conservation and Use of Energy in by John Littler

By John Littler

Originating from their paintings at Cambridge college at the layout of strength effective houses in Northern Europe, the authors examine the positioning structures, construction designs, on hand renewable power resources, and servicing structures in several sorts of low power homes.

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, strong waste administration can be a key problem dealing with the entire world's towns. sturdy Waste administration within the World's towns presents a clean viewpoint and new info on one of many greatest concerns in city improvement. utilizing the framework of built-in Sustainable Waste administration (ISWM), the file brings jointly unheard of learn from 22 towns throughout six continents.

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

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

Pennyland, a local-authority scheme for 177 houses in Milton Keynes, was designed to take advantage of passive solar gain. The planning density is, very roughly, about 100 p/ha of the total site area, a figure which gives considerable scope for selective orientation. Ideally, for maximum passive solar gain, houses should be orientated towards the south (see Chapter 3) but this is, of course, not always Solar radiation 19 possible and, indeed at times, not desirable for aesthetic or other reasons.
