About this book

This book highlights current research and development in the area of sustainable built environments, currently one of the most important disciplines in civil engineering. It covers a range of topics, including sustainable construction and infrastructures, waste and wastewater management, enhanced sustainability, renewable and clean energy, sustainable materials and industrial ecology, building automation and virtual reality, and impact of climate change. As such it provides vital insights into responsible urbanization practices, and new tools and technologies in civil engineering that can mitigate the negative effects of the built environment.
