"The book studies examples of natural capital in Poland, identifies the beneficiaries of these natural assets, and discusses ways to reimburse those who own, steward or live within these assets (such as the national parks). With its focus firmly on environmental assets, rather than disruption and crises in the Central and Eastern European environment, the author reports on a number of nature protection studies including economic valuation surveys, species reintroduction projects, and the financing of national park services. Regional and international contexts of the local natural heritage are highlighted. Tomasz Zylicz uses the example of Poland to frame wider theories and conclusions on how to preserve and enhance the natural capital in transition economies." "Political, environmental and natural resource economists and environmental scientists, as well as NGOs and policymakers will find this book illuminating reading."--BOOK JACKET.

Environmental engineering has a leading role in the elimination of ecological threats, and can deal with a wide range of technical and technological problems due to its interdisciplinary character. It uses the knowledge of the basic sciences – biology, chemistry, biochemistry and physics – to neutralize pollution in all the elements of the environment, i.e. the hydrosphere, atmosphere and lithosphere. Mainly, environmental engineering deals with the design and maintenance of systems of water supply, sewage disposal, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning in buildings. In brief, it deals with securing technically, the conditions which create a safe environment for mankind to live in. The three main goals of Environmental Engineering III are to assess the state of scientific research in various areas of environmental engineering; to evaluate organizational, technical, and technological progress in contributing to ecological security; and to determine the place of environmental engineering in sustainable development, taking into account current political and economic conditions. The contributions are divided into eight sections: General problems Air pollution control Indoor air pollution control Neutralization of sewage sludge and wastewater Neutralization of solid wastes and sludges Remediation of polluted sites Water quality and supply Energy saving and recovery Environmental Engineering III contains 88 selected and peer reviewed papers from 327 contributions presented during the 3rd Congress of Environmental Engineering, and is a valuable sources of information for academics and engineers in environmental engineering.

"Heavy Metals: Problems and Solutions" is divided into three sections dealing with basic geochemical processes, remediation and case studies. The basic geochemical processes are discussed with respect to mobility in the environment and impact as well as methods to derive guidelines for heavy metals. Remediation focuses on currently available methods to treat contaminated sediments and soils. In addition, it considers the concept of geochemical engineering for remediation of large areas contaminated by metals. A number of case studies of polluted sediments and soils and their environmental impact highlight the principles discussed in the first two sections.
