Transport is a large contributor to greenhouse gas emissions while other problems include local pollution, noise, accidents and resource depletion (Hickman and Banister, ). While these factors can all contribute to reducing the effect of personal transport on energy resource depletion, they may have to be complemented with more long-term structural measures such as public transport systems and urban planning (Smith and Raemaekers ) which are aimed at the main driving force – demand for by: The book largely focuses on values, ergonomy and risk management in the context of aviation business strategy.

To understand the environmental impacts of various tray solutions for meat packaging, a comparative environmental assessment was Author: Daniel Maga, Markus Hiebel, Venkat Aryan.

Natural gas (also called fossil gas) is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, but commonly including varying amounts of other higher alkanes, and sometimes a small percentage of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide, or helium.

The latter phenomenon is referred to as the ozone are also springtime polar tropospheric .
