This reference work analyzes and assesses global environmental management techniques for environmental materials with a focus on their performance and economic benefits, proposing eco-friendly solutions and designating policies that will sustain the environment for future generations. It addresses management of environmental materials as not only a complex anthropogenic problem, but also as an expensive problem that needs to be managed sustainably. Simultaneously, it considers the environmental and economic benefits involved in the high levels of investment and operation costs required to develop effective materials collection and management systems in modern society.
Dr. Hussain graduated from the Chulalongkorn University in Thailand with both the M.S. and the Ph.D. in Environmental Management. Currently, he is an adjunct professor, academic advisor and lab director at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Newark, New Jersey. In addition to his research publications on applications of nanotechnology in environmental applications, he has published chapters on sample preparation techniques with nanomaterials and another on carbon nanomaterials in adsorbent environmental analysis. Several other book chapters are being written on the topics of nanotechnology and the environment. In addition to teaching, his editorial experience includes editorship of the Journal of Chemistry (Hindawi), guest editorship of the ASME Journal of Nanotechnology in Engineering and Medicine, editorship of BOAJ Chemistry and more.
