Book Description :

Today, with the supply of conventional energy resources being depleted at their fastest rates and the environmental impacts of their use better understood, there is an increasing desire to develop and employ alternative energy technologies that lessen dependence on these resources and reduce environmental impact. The ability to evaluate and compare potential technologies on a level playing field based on technical, environmental, and economic performance is essential to meeting these objectives while avoiding undesirable consequences. This dissertation presents a critical assessment of the existing methods for evaluating the technical and economic performance of energy systems, and introduces a new framework for evaluating environmental performance. The dissertation first considers the technical component of decision making. It is shown that, while all of the existing thermodynamic analysis techniques are well-established, significant subtlety is required in applying the techniques, understanding their capabilities, and interpreting their results for decision making. A detailed analysis of the production of Fischer-Tropsch liquids is used to illustrate many low-level issues associated with performing technical analysis of energy systems. These issues include the reliance on published data, empirical data, phase relationships, properties, analytical tools, and proprietary information. The analysis highlights that many of these issues are often not properly addressed in published studies and how oversights in these areas can adversely influence the decisions they inform. Following this low-level analysis, a service/carrier/resource view of the space in which energy systems operate is presented to discuss some of the considerations that are commonly not recognized when decision making across energy options. Across all levels of technical decision making, the utility of exergy is demonstrated as an analysis tool for evaluating energy options and providing performance information for decision making. Next, the dissertation considers the environmental component of decision making. In this consideration a new framework for evaluating environmental performance is presented. The framework utilizes the recent recognition that exergy is, in fact, a form of environmental free energy to provide a fundamental basis for valuing environmental interactions independent from their secondary impacts (e.g., global warming, photochemical smog, thermal pollution, etc.). In order to make this extension, modifications were required to the traditional representation of the environment and definition of the dead state used in technical exergy analysis. These modifications are accomplished through a combination of logical extensions and use of non-equilibrium thermodynamic principles. The framework is comprised of two separate analysis components: (1) environmental exergy analysis and (2) anthropocentric sensitivity analysis. Environmental exergy analysis extends the principles of technical analysis to the environment in order to quantify the locations, magnitudes, and types of environmental impact---state change, alteration of natural transfers, and destruction change. Anthropocentric sensitivity analysis enables the results of environmental exergy analysis to be further interpreted for decision making, but at the expense of introducing some subjectivity into the analysis framework. One of the key attributes of the analysis framework is its ability to evaluate and compare the environmental performance of energy systems on a level playing field, regardless of the specifics of the systems (such as resources, products, by-products, sizes, or time scales). The dissertation concludes with a discussion of the economic component of energy decision making. Recognizing the vast space of economics and energy, the discussion focuses on one of the many relevant dimensions of economic analysis---namely the influence costs and cash flow models have on the evaluation of energy systems. It is shown that the ability to accurately estimate the cost---both initial and future---of non-extant energy systems significantly influences economic performance metrics commonly used in decision making.

Book Description :

As cities undergo vast changes due to industrialization, urbanization, and globalization, environmental considerations assume a growing importance in the urban planning processes of an increasing number of governments around the world. Several cities and regions around the world have already enacted policies that signal the emergence of a paradigm of sustainability in eco-cities planning. Providing an overview of urban ecosystem structure, function, and change, Eco-Cities: A Planning Guide addresses how to successfully accomplish eco-city planning that meets government requirements. It adds a new dimension to the understanding and application of the concept of urban sustainability, based on hypotheses about feedback between social and biogeophysical processes. Emphasizing integration, the first part of the book discusses various aspects of planning theory. It presents three innovative theories for socioeconomic models: a theory on the locational choices made by households and firms, an urban version of the stream continuum concept, and an application of metacommunity theory to the fragmented urban biota. These theories raise new urban planning questions and stimulate integrated modeling. The book also introduces urban planning modeling that uses existing social, vegetation, ecohydrological, and ecosystem service modules but is refined and operated for enhanced cross-disciplinary integration and prediction. The second part of the book consists of several case studies of Chinese eco-cities covering a majority of the urban development patterns that offer in-depth examples of planning practices currently in use. Drawing on experimentation, comparison, long-term measurement, and modeling, this fascinating guide helps readers better understand eco-cities and eco-landscapes as integrated, spatially extensive, complex adaptive systems. It lays a solid foundation for engagement between urban planners, researchers, educators, policy makers, and citizens as they work to adapt to changing environmental, social, and economic conditions.

Book Description :

The important resource that explores the twelve design principles of sustainable environmental engineering Sustainable Environmental Engineering (SEE) is to research, design, and build Environmental Engineering Infrastructure System (EEIS) in harmony with nature using life cycle cost analysis and benefit analysis and life cycle assessment and to protect human health and environments at minimal cost. The foundations of the SEE are the twelve design principles (TDPs) with three specific rules for each principle. The TDPs attempt to transform how environmental engineering could be taught by prioritizing six design hierarchies through six different dimensions. Six design hierarchies are prevention, recovery, separation, treatment, remediation, and optimization. Six dimensions are integrated system, material economy, reliability on spatial scale, resiliency on temporal scale, and cost effectiveness. In addition, the authors, two experts in the field, introduce major computer packages that are useful to solve real environmental engineering design problems. The text presents how specific environmental engineering issues could be identified and prioritized under climate change through quantification of air, water, and soil quality indexes. For water pollution control, eight innovative technologies which are critical in the paradigm shift from the conventional environmental engineering design to water resource recovery facility (WRRF) are examined in detail. These new processes include UV disinfection, membrane separation technologies, Anammox, membrane biological reactor, struvite precipitation, Fenton process, photocatalytic oxidation of organic pollutants, as well as green infrastructure. Computer tools are provided to facilitate life cycle cost and benefit analysis of WRRF. This important resource: • Includes statistical analysis of engineering design parameters using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) • Presents Monte Carlos simulation using Crystal ball to quantify uncertainty and sensitivity of design parameters • Contains design methods of new energy, materials, processes, products, and system to achieve energy positive WRRF that are illustrated with Matlab • Provides information on life cycle costs in terms of capital and operation for different processes using MatLab Written for senior or graduates in environmental or chemical engineering, Sustainable Environmental Engineering defines and illustrates the TDPs of SEE. Undergraduate, graduate, and engineers should find the computer codes are useful in their EEIS design. The exercise at the end of each chapter encourages students to identify EEI engineering problems in their own city and find creative solutions by applying the TDPs.

Book Description :

In this important new work, Howard T. Odum, widely acknowledged as the father of systems ecology, lucidly explains his concept of emergy, a measure of real wealth that provides a rational, science-based method of evaluating commodities, services, and environmental goods. Using specific real-world examples, Dr. Odum clearly demonstrates the revolutionary role of emergy in environmental management and policy making. Environmental Accounting: Emergy and Environmental Decision Making offers environmental professionals—policymakers, managers, ecologists, planners, developers, and activists—a systematic approach to environmental and economic valuation that will eliminate much of the rancor and adversarial decision making that often plagues environmental issues. Specifically, this book: Describes the theoretical basis, calculation procedures, and applications of emergy Introduces the concept of "transformity," the ratio of emergy (work put into a product) and energy (value received from the product) Provides formulas for emergy calculations, procedures for making an emergy evaluation table, and parameters for updating evaluations Demonstrates the use of emergy to evaluate environments, minerals, waters, primary energy sources, economic developments, and international trade Compares the emergy approach to environmental evaluation with others Environmental Accounting: Emergy and Environmental Decision Making will help environmental decision makers and the society they serve maximize economic vitality with less trial and error, innovate with fewer failures, and adapt to change more rapidly. It provides the tools they need to arrive at the best policies in resource management, economics, and the environment. Balancing the economy and the environment— from the father of systems ecology Increasing economic dependence on diminishing natural resources has sparked a highly charged debate over the use and fate of the world environment. Environmental Accounting: Emergy and Environmental Decision Making presents a unique method of environmental management based on maximizing real wealth, the whole economy, and the public benefit. Renowned ecologist Howard T. Odum introduces the concept of emergy to provide a rational alternative to the tug-of-war over the world's most vital assets. Emergy measures the energy put into making a product and is the cornerstone of Odum's revolutionary text. This timely and important book offers key insights into: Determining the real value of a product or service Transformity, or the relationship between emergy (input) and energy (output) Stored wealth, available energy, and the final product Balancing economic and environmental needs Environmental Accounting: Emergy and Environmental Decision Making will help economists, ecologists, policymakers, and planners make more responsible, informed decisions to sustain economic and environmental development.
