Environmental Considerations in Energy Production contains submissions from energy professionals from around the world who discuss a wide selection of topics on energy production, including coal mining, oil and gas production, and electrical power generation, as well as the impacts on society and the environment.
The papers present existing and emerging issues, best practices and techniques, and appropriate and innovative solutions to meet the present and future challenges of energy production. These proceedings contain both complete papers as well as abstracts where a full paper was not warranted.
The abstracts are included as a resource to readers who may be interested in contacting those individuals. The papers range from reviews of work previously completed and discussions of preliminary investigations to thorough reports of research and recommended changes in methodologies and procedures.
The issues presented show how the environmental impacts of energy production affect community well-being and human health.
