Overview

Exergy, Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development is a research-oriented book and therefore includes practical features in a usable format often not included in other, solely academic textbooks.

Theory and analysis are emphasized throughout in this comprehensive book, reflecting new techniques, models and applications, including various materials with the most recent information. Coverage of the material is extensive and the amount of information and data presented is sufficient for exergy related courses or supplementary for energy, environment and sustainable development courses.

This book is essentially intended for use by advanced undergraduate or graduate students in several engineering and non-engineering disciplines and as an essential tool for practitioners.

It is strongly believed that it will be of interest to students, practitioners, as well as people and institutions who are interested in exergy and its applications to various systems and applications, as well as other areas. It is an invaluable and readable reference text and source for anyone who wishes to learn about more about exergy and its linkages with energy, environment and sustainable development.
