ENERGY-WATER-WASTE NEXUS: For Environmental Management discusses the close linkages or nexus between production and usage of energy and water consequently generation and disposal of waste. For example it takes a significant amount of water to create energy. Water is used as a coolant in power plants fuelled by coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear power and is required to generate hydropower. Thus, Different types of electricity generation require differing amounts of water. At the same time a significant amount of energy is used to extract, move and treat water for different industrial process and domestic and agricultural practices. Energy and water resources are also used for the collection, treatment and disposal of wastewater and solid waste. Therefore, there is an unseparable interlinkage of generation and usage of each unit of electricity and each drop of water and consequently for the treatment of each pinch/drop of waste. This volume offers some solutions for the sustainable integrated management of the environmental problems and crises in part or as a whole.
