Innovative Strategies for Competitiveness and Sustainability in Global Business Environments: Kamal Kishore Sharma
Innovative Wastewater Treatment & Resource Recovery Technologies: Impacts on Energy, Economy and Environment:
Innovative Wastewater Treatment & Resource Recovery Technologies: Impacts on Energy, Economy and Environment:1. Auflage
Transport systems are facing an impossible dilemma: satisfy an increasing demand for mobility of people and goods, while decreasing their fossil-energy requirements and preserving the environment. Additionally, transport has an opportunity to evolve in a changing world, with new services, technologies but also new requirements (fast delivery, reliability, improved accessibility). In this book, recent research works are reported around the triptych: transport, energy and environment, which demonstrates that vehicle technologies and fuels can still improve, but it is necessary to prepare their implementation (e.g. electro-mobility), to think of new services, and to involve all actors, particularly enterprises, who will be the drivers of innovation. Mitigation strategies are studied to promote innovative, multimodal and clean transports and services. Research progress is reported on air pollution, vibrations and noise, their mitigation and assessment methodologies.
