This book deals with exergy and its applications to various energy systems and applications as a potential tool for design, analysis and optimization, and its role in minimizing and/or eliminating environmental impacts and providing sustainable development. In this regard, several key topics ranging from the basics of the thermodynamic concepts to advanced exergy analysis techniques in a wide range of applications are covered as outlined in the contents.
- Comprehensive coverage of exergy and its applications
- Connects exergy with three essential areas in terms of energy, environment and sustainable development
- Presents the most up-to-date information in the area with recent developments
- Provides a number of illustrative examples, practical applications, and case studies
- Easy to follow style, starting from the basics to the advanced systems

Exergy, Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development is a research-oriented book and therefore includes practical features in a usable format often not included in other, solely academic textbooks.
Theory and analysis are emphasized throughout in this comprehensive book, reflecting new techniques, models and applications, including various materials with the most recent information. Coverage of the material is extensive and the amount of information and data presented is sufficient for exergy related courses or supplementary for energy, environment and sustainable development courses.
This book is essentially intended for use by advanced undergraduate or graduate students in several engineering and non-engineering disciplines and as an essential tool for practitioners.
It is strongly believed that it will be of interest to students, practitioners, as well as people and institutions who are interested in exergy and its applications to various systems and applications, as well as other areas. It is an invaluable and readable reference text and source for anyone who wishes to learn about more about exergy and its linkages with energy, environment and sustainable development.
