International Conference on Clean Water, Air & Soil (CleanWAS 2015) 2016
This book provides interdisciplinary insights on climate, air pollution, waste management, the water cycle and environmental conservation. It reports on novel techniques designed to clean the environment. The title contains a selection of papers presented at the "International Conference on Clean Water, Air & Soil (CleanWAS 2015)" which took place on 28 -30 August in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. CleanWAS 2015 focused on all aspects of the biosphere including natural, physical, chemical and biological processes, as well as organism/human-interaction with the natural environment. CleanWAS is organized every year by "The International Water, Air and Soil Conservation Society (INWASCON)" with joint support from various Malaysian and Chinese universities. The conference brings together leading researchers, engineers and academics from around the globe.
