Scientific Essay from the year 2001 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: 7.0, University of Twente (Cartesius institute), course: MBA Environmental and Energy Managmenet, language: English, abstract: This manual contains a detailed description of the Environmental Management System. It also contains procedures and work instructions, which are also requirements of the Quality Management System (QMS) and Health and Safety Management (H&S). Both the QMS and H&S will not be discussed in detail in this advisory report. The Quality Management System is a change mechanism, which is targeted at developing a customer driven organization through integrative working practices. The underlying purpose of Total Quality Management has much common ground with the EMS. Health and Safety Management can be regarded as a set of external controls dictated to business and which establishes and fulfills specific targets. In the project of wastewater minimization, the Health and Safety Department helps the team by carrying out the necessary risk assessment of operations and develops related control activities. The Health and Safety Manager also has a role as member of the project team, so the integration between the systems will be fully established.Effective health, safety (and environmental management) is not common sense but is based on a common understanding of risks and how to control them brought about through good management.

Mohammed Haroun Electrokinetics for Petroleum and Environmental Engineers

15567.07 руб.
Electrokinetics is a term applied to a group of physicochemical phenomena involving the transport of charges, action of charged particles, effects of applied electric potential and fluid transport in various porous media to allow for a desired migration or flow to be achieved. These phenomena include electrokinetics, electroosmosis, ion migration, electrophoresis, streaming potential and electroviscosity. These phenomena are closely related and all contribute to the transport and migration of different ionic species and chemicals in porous media. The physicochemical and electrochemical properties of a porous medium and the pore fluid, and the magnitudes of the applied electrical potential all impact the direction and velocity of the fluid flow. Also, an electrical potential is generated upon the forced passage of fluid carrying charged particles through a porous medium. The use of electrokinetics in the field of petroleum and environmental engineering was groundbreaking when George Chilingar pioneered its use decades ago, but it has only been in recent years that its full potential has been studied. This is the first volume of its kind ever written, offering the petroleum or environmental engineer a practical “how to” book on using electrokinetics for more efficient and better oil recovery and recovery from difficult reservoirs. This groundbreaking volume is a must-have for any petroleum engineer working in the field, and for students and faculty in petroleum engineering departments worldwide.

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: 2:1, Robert Gordon University Aberdeen, course: Oil and Gas Law - Environmental Law, language: English, abstract: Melting of the Arctic ice, caused by global warming and energy security issues, has led Arctic states to prospect further North for new petroleum opportunities. Consequently, the already fragile Arctic marine environment has been further compromised. The Arctic coastal states, under the Ilulissat Declaration, agreed that UNCLOS will provide a legal basis for the regulatory framework in the Arctic, supplemented by Arctic Council soft-law. Consequently, the environmental issues in the Arctic, arising as a result of O&G activities, mainly have to be dealt under the discretion of the Arctic coastal states' regulations. By analysing current environmental regulation in the Arctic, the paper aims to discover if the framework can ensure that petroleum activities are carried out in an environmentally safe fashion. To make sure that the Arctic states can address the aforementioned issues, under national legislation, the paper will examine Russia's and Norway's petroleum regulations applicable to the Arctic.In the light of the performed analysis, the paper will propose to address the regulatory gaps created as a result of environmental issues arising from petroleum activities in the Arctic under the Arctic Framework Treaty. To address topical issues at the sub-regional level,...

Tiina Salonen Strategies, Structures, and Processes for Network and Resources Management in Industrial Parks

9427 руб.
In the recent years the number of industrial parks has grown rapidly worldwide driven by economic policies and industrial restructuring. The high resource consumption and prices as well as stringent environmental policies and laws have pushed the strategic importance of efficient resources management. Due to the proximity of companies, industrial parks offer potential for the development of interorganizational resource exchanges, in terms of energy and waste, infrastructure sharing and joint services. Utilizing this potential enhances the resource efficiency and added value of companies while often reducing their environmental impacts. Efficient management of resources in industrial parks requires an appropriate management concept. However, the research and literature on the management of industrial parks is very limited. As a solution the author introduces the concept for integrated resources management. The theoretical status quo of the concept is studied from the perspective of industrial ecology with the conclusion that the approach lacks a strategic management dimension. To tackle the problem, the author draws upon the strategic management and organizational theories as well as the approaches of network and environmental management. The empirical insights into the concept are sought by analyzing applied practices to network and resources management in industrial parks. The case studies comprise representative examples of successful industrial restructuring from Germany s...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Real Estate Management Institute), language: English, abstract: At the beginning of 2009, the owner of the Empire State Building unveiled his plan to "go green". The world famous skyscraper was completed in 1931 in New York, USA. The Art Deco building is currently in the midst of a $500m renovation, where $100m of these funds are designated for the green initiative. The green renovations are expected to decrease energy expenditures by 38 percent or $4.4m annually (Jonas, 2009).The example of the Empire State Building is not unique, since increased environmental awareness has affected nearly every industry. Companies across all industries and nations have launched green initiatives in order to improve their environmental performance and in response to the expressed concerns regarding their immediate environment. Currently, corporations compete to adopt and implement sustainable policies.Particularly the role of the real estate industry in reducing the environmental burden is considered to be the most important, as this industry is one of the largest emitters of harmful chemical substances and a major user of natural resources (Nelson, 2007, p. i). However, it is not enough to consider only the ecological aspects of real estate. This is because real estate, as a commodity, has an eno...

Although Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) represents only a small number of investors, nevertheless it is on the rise, which means that the environmental performance of oil and gas companies has certain implications for those companies' funding.The aim of this paper is to explore environmental performance in the oil and gas industry and the relationships between environmental performance and SRI in the company BP. A mixed research design is employed in this study in which two types of qualitative exploratory analysis are used: an illustrative case study with BP and semi-structured interviews conducted with 14 individuals including environmental managers, investor relations managers and investment managers. In addition, the researcher will use a qualitative comparison analysis in looking at publications produced by BP on the topic of environmental performance. In this study, the researcher found there to be minimal correlation between environmental performance and ist effects on investors' SRI decisions. This paper has implications for further enhancing the definition of environmental performance and increasing company value for SRI investors, although it is limited by the size of the sample and other uncontrollable variables.This paper increases the understanding of current definitions of environmental performance in the oil and gas industry and enhances values for SRI investors when investing in oil and gas companies.

The car industry is a 100-year old industry. During this century it has seen success, glory, and always overcame challenges. Today, it is facing a new issue: the environmental concern. Pressure is coming from both the society and governments, which forces companies to rethink their business practices. However, little is known on how to integrate the physical environment into business strategies, as it never has been considered before. The car industry is one of the most proactive industries when it comes to environmental claims. However, traditional approaches to marketing are no longer adequate as the environmental concern is redefining the economic paradigm and stakeholders' expectations. This book, therefore, provides an understanding on how environmental issues affect business markets and marketing strategies. It particularly highlights some evolving trends regarding green communications and provides some insights into how communication strategies are evolving in the automotive industry. This analysis should be especially useful to professionals in Communications and Marketing fields, or anyone who has an interest in the evolving motor industry.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: A, University of Nigeria (CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL), course: ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL, language: English, abstract: In ideal risk management, a prioritization process is followed whereby the risks with the greatest loss (or impact) and the greatest probability of occurring are handled first, and risks with lower probability of occurrence and lower loss are handled in descending order. In practice the process of assessing overall risk can be difficult, and balancing resources used to mitigate between risks with a high probability of occurrence but lower loss versus a risk with high loss but lower probability of occurrence can often be mishandled. Intangible risk management identifies a new type of a risk that has a 100% probability of occurring but is ignored by Government or organization due to a lack of identification ability. In Nigeria, some time, this is what is obtainable in the social and physical environment. In view of the above fact, environmental laws have been put in place to regulate every activity on the environment to manage the risk involved in these process and stage of development in other to avoid an impending or a looming catastrophe. According to the International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE), the major environmental issues in Nigeria are "drought and flooding, air pollution, deforestation, loss of biodiversi...

Wilson C. Chin has written some of the most important and well-known books in the petroleum industry. These books, whose research was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and several international petroleum corporations, have set very high standards. Many algorithms are used at leading oil service companies to support key drilling and well logging applications. For the first time, the physical models in these publications, founded on rigorous mathematics and numerical methods, are now available to the broader industry: students, petroleum engineers, drillers and faculty researchers. The presentations are written in easy-to-understand language, with few equations, offering simplified explanations of difficult problems and solutions which provide key insights into downhole physical phenomena through detailed tabulations and color graphics displays. Practical applications, such as cuttings transport, pressure control, mudcake integrity, formation effects in unconventional applications, and so on, are addressed in great detail, offering the most practical answers to everyday problems that the engineer encounters. The book does not stop at annular flow. In fact, the important role of mudcake growth and thickness in enabling steady flow in the annulus is considered, as is the role of (low) formation permeability in affecting mud filtration, cake growth, and fluid sealing at the sandface. This is the first publication addressing “the big picture,” a “first” drawn from the author’s related research in multiple disciplines such as drilling rheology, formation testing and reservoir simulation. A must-have for any petroleum engineer, petroleum professional, or student, this book is truly a groundbreaking volume that is sure to set new standards for the industry.

The battle against climate change has become predominant for environmental regulators around the globe. The EU is no exception, and the EU Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is the pinacle of EU environmental policy in this area. Aviation is among the latest industry sectors to be included in the Emission Trading Scheme, and while the Commission strive to produce effective and comprehensive policy on the subject, the EU's mode of regulatory co-optition pitches industry and environmental organizations against each other in the struggle for influence over the policy process. This book takes a closer look at the arguments of key stakeholders in the policy process pertaining to the inclusion of aviation in the EU ETS, and examines why certain stakeholders seemingly are able to influence policy development more successfully than others.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1.7, UNITEC New Zealand (Supply Management Institute (SMI)), course: Diplom, 105 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Problem Definition and Scope of the Diploma ThesisThe problem which is addressed in this diploma thesis is the research deficit in the field of benchmarking supply and sourcing strategies. As it was stated in the introduction, no academic publication could be identified in which supply or sourcing strategies in the automotive industry are benchmarked with another industry and detailed recommendations for a particular industry are derived. This lack of academic research is related to a general research deficit in the whole field of supply management which was already identified by Wildemann (2000), Van Weele (2002) and Jahns (2005). The whole field of supply management cannot be entirely benchmarked within two industries in a diploma thesis. Because of that and to reduce complexity, the sourcing strategy triangle which is further explained in section 2.4 and shown in the following figure 2 was developed as a benchmarking framework.1.3 Structure of the Diploma ThesisFirstly, chapter one provides an introduction including the problem definition (section 1.1), background information about the Hilti Corporation (section 1.2) and the structure of the diploma thesis (section 1.3).
