Fairness and Futurity: Essays on Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice

This e-book brings jointly best overseas figures in political conception and sociology, in addition to representatives from the political group, to think about the normative concerns at stake within the courting among environmental sustainability and social justice. those essays emerged from 3 extensive seminars which introduced those special teams into fruitful touch.

State, Markets, and Just Growth: Development in the Twenty-First Century

This quantity explores the typical issues of constructing nations within the quest for simply development, whereas emphasizing their specified local wishes. the hole chapters offer an outline of the shared imperatives of globalization, democracy, poverty, and inequality. the remaining examine the files of other areas and international locations achieve simply development.

Long-Term Integration of Renewable Energy Sources into the European Energy System

A sustainable ecu power procedure, mitigating weather switch and fixing a couple of different key environmental difficulties, would require gigantic reliance on renewable strength assets mixed with a pointy elevate in power productiveness. on the grounds that many of the technoplogies valuable for the sort of improvement are already on hand, latest most vital questions are: How can those applied sciences be built-in into the eu strength approach?

The Design of Frontier Spaces: Control and Ambiguity

In a globalizing global, frontiers will be in flux yet they continue to be as major as ever. New borders are verified while outdated borders are erased. past traces on maps, even if, borders are spatial zones within which designated architectural, picture, and different layout components are deployed to sign the character of the distance and to steer, if now not truly regulate, behaviour and social family inside it.

Wyman Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College, 8000 Cummings Hall, Hanover, NH 03755 Lignocellulosic biomass provides a low-cost, uniquely sustainable resource for large-scale production of organic fuels and chemicals that can have low environmental impact while providing important economic and strategic advantages. Conversion costs must be competitive for these benefits to be realized, and biological processing routes can take advantage of emerging tools in modern biotechnology to dramatically improve economics.
