This guide to bioremediation in cold regions is designed to aid environmental practitioners, industry, and regulators in the remediation of petroleum spills and contaminated sites in cold regions. Remediation design and technology used in temperate climates does not necessarily work in cold climates, and cleanup takes longer due to shorter treatment seasons, sub-freezing temperatures, ground freezing and thawing, and limited bioactivity. Environmental engineers and scientists from eight countries working in the polar regions combine their experiences and expertise with petroleum contamination to write this book. It contains in-depth discussions on regulations, freezing and frozen ground, identification and adaptations of cold-tolerant bacteria, contaminant transport in cold soils and permafrost, temperature effects on biodegradation, analytical methods, treatability studies, and nutritional requirements for bioremediation. Emphasis is given to practical and effective bioremediation methods for application in cold regions. Emerging technologies are also discussed.

Handbook of Energy Efficiency in Buildings: A Life Cycle Approach offers a comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the subject with a further focus on the Life Cycle. The editors, renowned academics, invited a diverse group of researchers to develop original chapters for the book and managed to well integrate all contributions in a consistent volume. Sections cover the role of the building sector on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, international technical standards, laws and regulations, building energy efficiency and zero energy consumption buildings, the life cycle assessment of buildings, from construction to decommissioning, and other timely topics. The multidisciplinary approach to the subject makes it valuable for researchers and industry based Civil, Construction, and Architectural Engineers. Researchers in related fields as built environment, energy and sustainability at an urban scale will also benefit from the books integrated perspective. Presents a complete and thorough coverage of energy efficiency in buildings Provides an integrated approach to all the different elements that impact energy efficiency Contains coverage of worldwide regulation

The first desk reference on technical building systems for interiordesigners Building Systems for Interior Designers is the first bookto explain technical building systems and engineering issues in aclear and accessible way to interior designers. The technicalknowledge and vocabulary presented here allow interior designers tocommunicate more effectively with architects, engineers, andcontractors while collaborating on projects, leading to moreaccurate solutions for problems related to a broad range of otherbuilding considerations with an impact on interior design.Information on sustainable design is integrated throughout thebook, making it a relevant tool for current and emerging trends inbuilding design. Written in a straightforward, nontechnical style that maintainsdepth and accuracy, this book is the first complete text applicableto interior design courses and provides thorough preparation forthe NCIDQ exam. Engaging, clear illustrations support the text,which is accessible to those without a math or physicsbackground. Topics covered include: Heating and air conditioning systems Environmental issues Water and waste Thermal comfort HVAC systems Electricity Lighting Security and communications systems Fire safety Transportation systems With numerous case examples illustrating how interior designersapply this material in the real world, Building Systems forInterior Designers is a valuable book for students, as well asa practical desktop reference for professionals. Content from this book is available as an online continuingprofessional education course at ahref="http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-320255.html#fire_safety"http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-320255.html#fire_safety/a.
