Bringing together the real-world insights of engineers from the engineering and construction firm O'Brien & Gere and the teaching experiences of respected engineering educators, Strategic Environmental Management for Engineers offers readers the principles, tools, and motivation to design and implement engineering projects in harmony with sustainable development. Helpful coverage in Strategic Environmental Management for Engineers includes:* All key environmental management tools, including life-cycle assessment, environmental metrics, extended producer responsibility, ISO 14000 environmental management systems, and zero waste options* Valuable support for implementing SEM into an organization by function (e.g., R&D, engineering design, production, etc.) and by typical industry processes (e.g., papermaking, ethal production, aluminum production, automobile manufacturing, etc.)
Founded in 1945, O'BRIEN & GERE developed its reputation designing water and wastewater systems for upstate New York communities and industries. Today, the O'Brien & Gere companies service a long list of local, national, and international clients, providing start-to-finish engineering, construction, analytical, specialty manufacturing, operations, and property development services to industry, municipalities, and federal agencies. O'Brien & Gere has offices throughout the U.S. and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, and the United Kingdom. O'Brien & Gere's profits from this book are used to fund scholarships for engineering students. Robert Bellandi, ELS, has edited two earlier books with O'Brien & Gere Engineers on the subject of hazardous waste remediation and has recently contributed to a review of water resource and water quality management in New York State from 1789 to 1970.
