Energy appears to be a fundamental driving force of economic and political strategies as well as planetary stability. Energy-related issues such as (1) the availability of new energy sources and viable technologies, (2) the disparity in access to energy sources, (3) the role of energy in our societies (energy societal metabolism), (4) the energy support to the life of our cities (where about half of world population is going to live very soon), and (5) the energy demand for food security all over the world, are “hot” problems that humans will have to face within the framework of sustainability (ecologically sound production and consumption patterns associated with socially acce- able life styles), in terms of policies, technological development and economic processes. A coherent energy strategy is required, addressing both energy supply and demand, security of access, development problems, equity, market dynamics, by also taking into account the whole energy lifecycle including fuel production, transmission and distribution, energy conversion, and the impact on energy equipment manufacturers and the end-users of energy systems. Issues of energy efficiency and rebound effect must also be taken into proper account. In the short term, the aim should be to achieve higher energy efficiencies and increased supply from local energy sources, in particular renewable energy sources.

This book discusses the technical alternatives for cleanup of radioactive fluoride salts that were the fuel for the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment, a novel nuclear reactor design that was tested in the 1960s at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. These fluoride salts pose an unusual cleanup challenge. The book discusses alternatives for processing and removing the salts based on present knowledge of fluoride salt chemistry and nuclear reactions of the radioactive constituents.

In recent years African countries have taken great strides in their response to the demand for reliable contractual and institutional forms of doing business and for high-quality dispute resolution mechanisms. Modern international arbitration has taken root, with certain countries actively embracing modern harmonized arbitral practice, and others in the process of change and development. This unprecedented volume assembles for the first time a country-by-country analysis – both practical and insightful – of how arbitration is conducted in 46 African countries, providing essential information about legislative provisions, treaty adherence, and arbitral procedure. Contributors include current and former judges, distinguished practitioners, academics, and institution-builders, all of whom are active in promoting the use of arbitration as a viable means of dispute resolution in Africa. Five sections representing the main regions of the continent, each with a substantive introductory chapter covering the major trends within that region, offer country overviews addressing issues such as the following: ; adherence to the key arbitration conventions; the modernity of a State’s arbitration legislation and its compatibility with the UNCITRAL Model Law; particular features of arbitral practice in that jurisdiction; access to and (where available) statistics from local and regional arbitral institutions; significant arbitration-related national case law; and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. A sixth section focuses on Africa-based investor-State arbitration, providing an empirical analysis of the experience and record of African States with investment treaties and investor-State arbitration. Useful tables of intra-African bilateral investment treaties, a list of ICSID proceedings involving African States, and other tabular features round out the volume. The book will be welcomed by arbitration practitioners and legal academics everywhere as the essential guiding light in what is rapidly becoming a crucially important area of international arbitration practice.

Climate change and sustainability are important topics in the 21st century. Scientists have long warned that using fossil fuels to heat homes, power vehicles, and keep appliances running has negative effects on the environment, but there are many economic and social issues to consider when switching to alternative energy sources. Readers discover the debates surrounding various forms of alternative energy, the barriers that must be overcome in order to adopt them, and the benefits they can provide. Up-to-date statistics, annotated quotes from experts, full-color photographs, and informative sidebars help young adults form their own opinions about alternative energy sources.
