The Book of papers entitled “Conference proceedings of SEM2011” presents 53 papers reviewed and revised from 59 initially submitted for the “3rd International Symposium on Environmental Management” (SEM2011), held on October 26-28, 2011 in Zagreb, Croatia. Approximately 250 environmental professionals and experts, involved in the application of environmental assessment and management in businesses, scientific organizations, and governmental and non-governmental agencies, attended at the SEM2011. Thematic units included papers matched the topics presented at the Symposium. Papers presented within Environmental Management – Towards Sustainable Technologies are focused to the issues such as economical instruments and aspects of environmental protection, including the case study of environmental performances ; the problem of commercialization of water sources and services, application of the green economy as a competitive economy - Croatia’s way to EU. Papers dealing with the Sustainable Energy Production and Renewable Energy topics are covered mostly by foreign participants (based on wind, biogas and solar cells). The topics Soil and Forestry cover removal of pesticides and soil degradation processes. There are also several papers focused on soil protection and management issue. Thus, Croatian soil system database, soil conservation strategy in Europe and Hungary are presented, as well as new results and achievements of the joint project between Croatian and Hungarian scientists. Furthermore, within this topic the papers dealing with Solid Waste Management, presenting the problem of Croatian landfills, as well as problems related to the same topic in developing countries, are also included. Waste management issue is also covered by several case studies and scientific papers dealing with problems such as electrochemical treatment of landfill leachate, chemical recycling of postconsumer PET bottles, detoxification of tobacco waste and designing the reactor system, and the handling of sewage sludge and sludge generated by different industrial processes. Water and Wastewater Management are covered by several case study papers, presenting the ways how to solve the problems by application of novel processes such as microwave and ultrasonic irradiation, efficiency of pilot-scale wetland for the treatment of wastewater. Also, this section includes papers related to adsorption, recovery of perfluorinated surfactants from waste water and removal of glucocorticosteroides and anesthetics from water with RO/NF membranes ; the synthesis and characterization of new environmentally friendly materials, such as fly ash, primarily used as an additive in cement industry, and zeolites, which can be used for the managing of water and air pollution. Within the section Green Economy, Green Chemistry and Green Technologies and Sustainable Building several papers present the latest achievements and trends in sustainable building and construction in Croatia but in the world too. These papers point out the new approach and new materials in construction, how to use renewable energy sources and materials, but also report the latest EU directives within legislative in sustainable construction and alternative processes for removing organic sulfur compounds from petroleum fractions. Furthermore, the Conference Proceedings presents the approach to designated area zoning focusing in particular on the selection of methodology and concepts for achieving balance between environmental protection and economical and social development in Croatia. One of the very important subjects today, the Education for Sustainable Development related closely to environmental issues, is covered by the case study from Hungary and presenting training methods for purchasing officers to facilitate green procurement. Among topics Risk Assessment & Management and Environmental Management very interesting paper “A Comparative Analysis of Universities using Sustainability Indicators” appears and a case study from Croatian ceramic industry is presented as well. With increasing globalization problems, there is also increasing interest in environmental prevention and protection. Environmental management integrates many scientific and other professional disciplines all together and shows an essential link between life and nature, increasing consumer society and environment. Nowadays, environmental programs are oriented to sustainability conceived by environmental engineers and managers providing more and better solutions for the problems in environment. Hence, the wide and variety areas of presented papers in the Conference proceedings clearly demonstrate the importance of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to the solving of problems within environmental management in all spheres of every day life. We hope that the book provides enough interest data, results, new achievements and pro-active approaches within environmental management to any of readers’ vocation and the field of interest.
