  • Provides unprecedented peer-reviewed coverage of sustainability science and technology with contributions from nearly 1,000 of the world’s leading scientists and engineers
  • Edited by renowned Encyclopedia editor Robert Meyers with guidance from an Advisory Board of Nobel Laureates, a Crafoord Prize winner, and other prominent experts
  • Addresses the grand challenge for science and engineering today
  • Establishes a foundation for the many sustainability and policy evaluations being performed in institutions worldwide
  • Written in an authoritative yet accessible style for readers from undergraduate students through non-specialist professionals

The Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology (ESST) addresses the grand challenge for science and engineering today. It provides unprecedented, peer-reviewed coverage of sustainability science and technology with contributions from nearly 1,000 of the world’s leading scientists and engineers, who write on more than 600 separate topics in 42 sections. ESST establishes a foundation for the many sustainability and policy evaluations being performed in institutions worldwide.

An indispensable resource for scientists and engineers in developing new technologies and for applying existing technologies to sustainability, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is presented at the university and professional level needed for scientists, engineers, and their students to support real progress in sustainability science and technology.

Although the emphasis is on science and technology rather than policy, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is also a comprehensive and authoritative resource for policy makers who want to understand the scope of research and development and how these bottom-up innovations map on to the sustainability challenge.
