Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is intimately related with the exergy analysis and the destruction of exergy throughout the first and second law of thermodynamics. In can answer the question how much really the processes and in particular the uses of energy cause a pollution in the environment? It really impact on the environment? How and how much can be solved with the analysis showed in the book. More yet, because traditional methods in engineering and economics often fail to account the natural resources their contribution of ecosystems despite their obvious importance. Then the book focus tends to be on short-term economic goals, whereas long-term sustainability issues get shortchanged.
