Development with human face, economic growth devoid of environmental problems, concern for future generation are issues being hotly discussed in various national and international forums. The concept of sustainable development is being debated all over the world. These discussions are giving rise to innovative ideas for resource management, optimum use of renewable resources, their regeneration and restoration, waste recycling, improved processes etc. Development of new materials are becoming attractive methods towards sustainable development. This is a multi disciplinary subject, calling for greater interaction between a number of disciplines to appreciate a fuller picture.

Construction and power generation are the main sectors in terms of financial and material inputs. Obviously it makes sense to search for options in these sectors, which are eco friendly and compatible to sustainable development.

Fortunately science and technology has made considerable progress in this direction. It is prudent to take a comprehensive view of these developments and make this information available to planners, financial institutions, managers, business schools, professionals, students and interested general readers. This book makes an attempt in this direction.

Relevant technologies and related options are discussed in greater detail based on the author`s experience in infrastructure developmental activities and in hydrocarbon sector extending for a period over four decades. Specific case studies relevant to Indian context have been given to make the discussions objective. It is felt that the reader would get a wider and better view of the subject-matter and find motivation to apply the concept of sustainable development in his/her own professional pursuits.
