International Journal of Environmental Engineering (IJEE)

Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • ACUTE AND CHRONIC TOXICITY OF DIFENOCONAZOLE FUNGICIDE ON FRESHWATER SHRIMP, Macrobrachium lanchesteri   Order a copy of this article
    by Harlina Ahmad 
    Abstract: The toxicity of difenoconazole, a fungicide belonging to the triazole group of compounds, upon the freshwater shrimp (Macrobrachium lanchesteri sp.) was assessed within a laboratory setting. Shrimps were exposed to five different concentrations (0.33, 0.65, 1.30, 3.25, and 6.50 mg/L) of difenoconazole. The lethal concentration for 50 percent mortality in the population (LC50) determined the acute toxicity level of the compound, whilst chronic toxicity was derived from its no-observed effect concentration (NOEC). Subsequently, the LC50 and NOEC values observed for M. lanchesteri were determined to be 2.91 mg/L and 0.79 mg/L, respectively. This study demonstrated that aside from the intended anti-fungal effects of difenoconazole fungicides, they may also be toxic to off-target organisms, particularly M. lanchesteri.
    Keywords: Difenoconazole; acute toxicity test; chronic toxicity; Macrobrachium lanchesteri,LC50.

  • Study on the dynamic change of urban traffic carbon footprint under low-carbon tourism   Order a copy of this article
    by Jing Gao 
    Abstract: This study mainly analysed the dynamic change of carbon footprint of urban tourism transportation in Shandong Province from 2010 to 2019 and calculated the carbon footprint changes of the highway, railway, waterway, and civil aviation transport using the bottom-up method. The results showed that the carbon footprints of the highway, railway, waterway, and civil aviation transport in Shandong Province were 9.58
    Keywords: low carbon; tourism; city; transport carbon footprint; dynamic change.

  • Effects of herbal woods in homa therapy on air quality: experiments amidst unlocking the society in pandemic challenges   Order a copy of this article
    by Rohit Rastogi, Mamta Saxena, Sheelu Sagar, Neeti Tandon, T. Rajeshwari, Bhavna Singh, Priyanshi Garg, Madhulika Singh, Pranav Sharma, Komal Singh, Luv Dhamija, Mayank Sharma 
    Abstract: In pandemic, the economic crises and health issues have brought the whole human race in unprecedented situation. UN, WHO, World Bank, WFO and all other responsible organisations are indicating towards the Global crisis of health. Pandemic is not a single reason of health crisis, poor air quality is also a great threat for increasing mortality rate in the world. In Nation Capital Region (NCR), India and nearby areas, the time period of months of September to December is very much crucial every year as due to many social, cultural, ecological and known-unknown reasons, the quality of air is degraded below threshold level causing threats to human health and lives. Present manuscript is a trial for analysis of air quality of Indian capital region amidst global pandemic and effect of Ancient yagya and homa science on curbing the pollution.

  • Sustainability Development in Geotechnical Conceptual Design   Order a copy of this article
    by N.U.R. IRFAH MOHD PAUZI, Zakaria Che Muda, Mohd Shahril Mat Radhi 
    Abstract: The sustainability development in geotechnical conceptual design is to be developed for future generation. A tool box which consist of materials selection for construction, cost factor, life cycle cost analysis, construction method, technical, time, safety and public health, societal, culture, legal, environmental control are developed for sustainability in geotechnical area. This concept is critical when planning for the sustainability in the geotechnical conceptual design. The geotechnical work is the first stage in construction that will determine the success of the project in preserving the environment. Geotechnical for the earthwork design will decide the appropriate platform levels and profiles for the construction site which to reduce the environmental impact. In conclusion, the sustainability of the geotechnical engineering must take into account the eco-centric, techno-centric and socio-centric aspect of its development. The development in construction usually consider the technology but impacting the environmental and societal requirement. For the future generation benefit, the present resources should be preserved from depleting to maintain the sustainability needs of the later generations.
    Keywords: Sustainability development; environmental control; societal impact; geotechnical conceptual design.
