Green Technologies to Improve the Environment on Earth

Edited by Marquidia Pacheco

Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares

The aim of this book is to compile some of the green technologies applied to improve the environment on Earth. The success of these technologies is built from humility; from this ethical principle, the concept of honest broker is defined in this work. Some of the biggest environmental problems, such as soil pollution by heavy metals and pollution from the mining industry and massive coal plants, are also addressed. Additional subjects depicted here include geothermal energy, plasma technology, and the correct use of electric vehicles, and demonstrate a promising scenario to diminish greenhouse gases. Likewise, caring for wildlife is essential; the correct use of certain technologies depicted here can contribute to their conservation.
