Modernisation, lifestyle changes and industrial development have been taking their toll on the environment. Not only is there rapid consumption of natural resources, but there is also an increase in types and amounts of pollutants being discharged into the environment.
This inevitably strains our planet and threatens our existence. Technologies that effectively deal with the problem of environmental pollution and do not compromise sustainability are the need of the hour. This special issue will include papers that would generally fall within the environmental domain, i.e. manuscripts that would provide practical sustainable solutions to issues related to (but not limited to) energy, water and materials, thus advancing sustainability.
This special issue will publish revised and substantially extended versions of environmental engineering-related papers presented at the International Conference on Civil, Offshore and Environment Engineering (ICCOEE2012), to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 12-14 June, 2012. We also strongly encourage researchers who cannot or will not participate in the conference to submit papers for this call.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
- Water pollution and control
- Wastewater treatment
- Air pollution and control
- Noise pollution and control
- Solid and hazardous waste management
- River engineering
- Environmental modelling
- Environment impact assessment
- GIS in environmental engineering
- CO2 capture and sequestration
