About this book

This tenth volume in the SAGE Series on Green Society explores the essential role of technology and its most recent developments toward a sustainable environment. Twofold in its definition, Green Technology includes the changing of existing technology toward energy conservation as well as the creation of new, clean technology aimed at utilizing renewable resources. With a primary focus on waste management, Green Technology: An A-to-Z Guide presents over 150 articles in A-to-Z format. Scholars and experts in their fields present a full range of topics from applications of Green Technology to The Green Grid global consortium to membrane technology and water purification systems to waste-to-energy technology.

Green Technology: An A-to-Z Guide culminates in an outstanding reference available in both print and electronic formats for academic, university, and public libraries. Pedagogical elements in the frontmatter and backmatter include a Reader's Guide grouping related entries by broad themes and topics, a Glossary of relevant terms, a Resource Guide to further readings (key books, journals, web sites), an appendix of Primary Documents, and a thorough Index.
