About this Book
Best practices for mitigating environmental damage from conventional power generation
This volume of the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering, Environmentally Conscious Fossil Energy Production, seeks to provide new solutions to one of the grand challenges of this century: supplying energy to a growing population while reducing environmental pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The first five chapters cover extraction and transport of fossil fuels; the last four chapters cover power plants. An international roster of contributors, from the United States, Canada, and the Middle East, deals with the wide variety of challenges posed by converting oil, natural gas, and coal to energy.
