J. Crespo is Professor at the Department of Chemistry, FCT-Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal and is interested in the development of selective membrane bioreactors and the study of membrane processes for separation of biological products from dilute streams.
“This volume recognizes that chemistry must have a pivotal role in the transition towards a sustainable, competitive and knowledge-based economy and society. In combination with its own supplier and downstream sectors it may contribute to improvements in both economic and social welfare.” (International Journal of Environmental Studies, 19 August 2006)
"...the focus of the book is given especially innovative technologies and is a very useful and recommendable tool to get information on its status. ... the review presents excellent knowledge about the different technologies. ...it should be pointed out that the book is very informative for technologists."
Environmental Science and Pollution Research
"Sustainability and Green Chemistry are two topics appearing routinely in the literature. This book adds to that process in a very useful way."
