This book applies fundamental thermodynamics to problems of sustainability, energy, and resource use, and shows that some of the proposed sustainable solutions can be more destructive than the original problem. Both rigorous and readable, the book will be useful to a variety of educational and professional audiences interested in green engineering, industrial ecology, and sustainable manufacturing. The contributors are leading international figures from many disciplines, including engineers, ecologists, economists, physicists, chemists, and policy experts.
