en Limba Engleză Hardback – 30 Sep 2012
The Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology (ESST) addresses the grand challenge for science and engineering today. It provides unprecedented, peer-reviewed coverage in more than 550 separate entries comprising 38 topical sections. ESST establishes a foundation for the many sustainability and policy evaluations being performed in institutions worldwide.
An indispensable resource for scientists and engineers in developing new technologies and for applying existing technologies to sustainability, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is presented at the university and professional level needed for scientists, engineers, and their students to support real progress in sustainability science and technology.
Although the emphasis is on science and technology rather than policy, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is also a comprehensive and authoritative resource for policy makers who want to understand the scope of research and development and how these bottom-up innovations map on to the sustainability challenge.

Notă biografică

Dr. Meyers was manager of Energy and Environmental Projects at TRW (now Northrop Grumman) in Redondo Beach, CA, and is now president of RAMTECH Limited. He is coinventor of the Gravimelt process for desulfurization and demineralization of coal for air pollution and water pollution control and was manager of the Department of Energy project leading to the construction and successful operation of a first-of-a-kind Gravimelt Process Integrated Test Plant. Dr. Meyers is the inventor of and was project manager for the DOE-sponsored Magnetohydrodynamics Seed Regeneration Project which has resulted in the construction and successful operation of a pilot plant for production of potassium formate, a chemical utilized for plasma electricity generation and air pollution control. He also managed TRW efforts in magnetohydrodynamics electricity generating combustor and plasma channel development. Dr. Meyers managed the pilot-scale DoE project for determining the hydrodynamics of synthetic fuels. He is a coinventor of several thermo-oxidative stable polymers which have achieved commercial success as the GE PEI, Upjohn Polyimides, and Rhone-Poulenc bismaleimide resins. He has also managed projects for photochemistry, chemical lasers, flue gas scrubbing, oil shale analysis and refining, petroleum analysis and refining, global change measurement from space satellites, analysis and mitigation (carbon dioxide and ozone), hydrometallurgical refining, soil and hazardous waste remediation, novel polymers synthesis, modeling of the economics of space transportation systems, space rigidizable structures, and chemiluminescence-based devices.
He is a senior member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, member of the American Physical Society, member of the American Chemical Society, and serves on the UCLA Chemistry Department Advisory Board. He was a member of the joint USA-Russia working group on air pollution control and the EPA-sponsored Waste Reduction Institute f
or Scientists and Engineers.Dr. Meyers has more than 20 patents and 50 technical papers in the fields of photochemistry, pollution control, inorganic reactions, organic reactions, luminescence phenomena, and polymers. He has published in primary literature journals including Science and the Journal of the American Chemical Society, and is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World. Dr. Meyers’ scientific achievements have been reviewed in feature articles in the popular press in publications such as The New York Times Science Supplement and The Wall Street Journal as well as more specialized publications such as Chemical Engineering and Coal Age. A public service film was produced by the Environmental Protection Agency of Dr. Meyers’ chemical desulfurization invention for air pollution control.
