Sustainable technology includes the scientific understanding, development, and application of a wide range of technologies and processes and their environmental implications. Systems and life cycle analyses of energy systems, environmental management, agriculture, manufacturing, digital technologies, provide a comprehensive method for understand the full sustainability of processes. The developed of clean processes through green chemistry and engineering techniques are described. Encyclopedia of Sustainable Technologies is the first multi-volume reference work to employ both Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Triple Bottom Line (TBL) approaches to assessing wide range of technologies available and their impact upon the world.

LCA is a tool for assessing the environmental impact of a technology. It is particularly useful in comparing different technologies or products in terms of their effects on the environment. TBL goes further than measuring environmental impact and assesses sustainability by measuring three different factors: social, environmental and economic (or people, planet and profits). Both approaches are long established and widely recognized and constitute the organizing principles of Encyclopedia of Sustainable Technologies.
