Assessing and Measuring Environmental Impact and Sustainability book cover

Assessing and Measuring Environmental Impact and Sustainability

Assessing and Measuring Environmental Impact and Sustainability answers the question “what are the available methodologies to assess the environmental sustainability of a product, system or process?” Multiple well known authors share their expertise in order to give a broad perspective of this issue from a chemical and environmental engineering perspective. This mathematical, quantitative book includes many case studies to assist you with the practical application of environmental and sustainability methods. You will also gain an understanding of how to efficiently assess and use these methods.

Prof. Klemes’ book summarizes all relevant environmental methodologies to assess the sustainability of a product and tools, in order to develop more ‘green’ products or processes. The main methodology that is explored is life cycle assessment. This book should be of interest to any engineers interested in environmental impact and sustainability.


Chemical engineers, students and academics, plus any engineers with an interest in environmental impact.
