About the Book

Minerals Industry that include minerals and oil and gas, in its value added in upstreams as well as in infrastructure and constructions contribute to the range of 10-16% of any country’s annual Gross Domestic Products (GDP). The sector has been-under increased focus-due to heavy investment possibilities and resulting employment generation that are quite resilient to downturns, industrial cycles and recession. At the same time this industry, in its huge diversity and complications, attracts attention from the environmental regulators. NGOs and the public due to visible and perceptible pollution. For an industrial developer, the projects performance becomes critical in the face of above dynamics.

While the demand for a book-dealing with such issues has remained high and topical for long, this book would surely fill the gap by bringing in the regulatory engineering and management aspects of environmental control for the projects.
