Series: Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology

This book sheds light on the interaction between the utilization of energy and the environment, as well as the economic aspects involved with this utilization. It is a vehicle for an international exchange and dissemination of ideas in the multidisciplinary field of energy-environment-economics between research scientists, engineers, economists, policy makers, and others concerned about these issues.
