Previously published elsewhere between 2012 and 2015 by an international group of engineers and environmental and other specialists, the 13 chapters in this volume consider strategies for improving urban environments in terms of air quality, solid waste alternatives, water management, and energy consumption. They address particulate matter reduction, reducing emissions, reducing transportation impacts on air quality, photocatalytic applications for air purification, mechanical pre-treatment for solid waste and energy co-generation, water management in the context of climate change, a vertical membrane bioreactor for the removal of organic matter and nutrients from wastewater, energy benchmarking of commercial buildings, energy pattern analysis of a wastewater treatment plant, and urban ecosystem health assessment.
