Environmental Sustainability contributes to the overall effort to enhance sustainability in society with a particular focus on subject areas supporting the sustainable management of the total environment. The aim of the section is therefore to publish research that will lead to a sustainable environment benefiting both society and industry in the long-term.
Environmental Sustainability is defined as the rate of renewable resource harvest, pollution creation and non-renewable resource depletion that can be continued indefinitely. If these elements cannot be continued forever, then they should not be considered as sustainable. The scope of this section is therefore concerned with research on renewable resources, pollution control and non-renewable resource depletion.
