This book deals with the state-of-the-knowledge on the sustainable supply and use of water and material resources in industry. the problems currently faced in water and material resources management depend on resource demands and supplies, their reliability and environmental protection which may be geographically varied and rather localized. Thus, the appropriate responses, both managerial and technological, will vary accordingly and creative thinking will be needed. Several chapters in this book contain such responses and illustrate them by case studies.
