Informed by the authors' extensive experience in helping organizations improve the performance of their management systems, Inside Energy: Developing and Managing an ISO 50001 Energy Management System covers how to apply each of the many requirements of the standard in a systematic and comprehensive manner. It discusses how converting an existing sub-optimal energy system into a state-of-the-art high quality one produces a demonstrably high return on investment. The book explores how to achieve energy performance targets and qualify for ISO 50001 registration. It helps you manage the skills, knowledge, and experience of the many experts who will participate in your organization's Energy Management System (EnMS) policy, planning, and implementation. This book provides practical information for understanding and developing an ISO 50000 Energy Management System (EnMS), including clear and concise explanations of the standards and requirements. Building from chapter to chapter, it supplies comprehensive direction for developing, implementing, and managing an EnMS. The text also explains the relationship between ISO 9000 and 14000, and offers guidance for integrating EnMS concepts with existing organizational policies, processes, and procedures. It also offers additional guidance on methods available to management and energy teams when implementing the ISO 50001 requirements. The book takes readers through the steps that can transform existing energy management systems to far more effective ones that significantly reduce the costs of energy in the business' bottom line. It includes perspectives on multinational and national energy and environment policies that will likely affect the cost of energy purchased in the world's markets. Using the information found in this book, you can save your organization money by increasing energy efficiency and/or reducing and more effectively managing energy generation or usage. You can also reduce generation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and promote improved public relations by demonstrating that the organization is taking measurable and tangible efforts (ISO 50001) to manage energy.

This second edition 'Gemmology' has been expanded and updated throughout by the well known writer and editor of Butterworth-Heinemann's gemmology series, Peter Read. This is a much needed update of a classic text and new syllabus information and sample examination theory papers for the Gemmological Association's Preliminary and Diploma courses are included. The additions also incorporate more recent developments, such as the introduction of synthetic moissanite and the De Beer's instruments for distinguishing between natural and synthetic diamonds. 'Gemmology' still serves as a useful reference guide for gemmologists detailing the latest natural and synthetic gem materials and is an invaluable text for anyone in the gemmological profession.

The paragon of physical perfection and a sparkling example of Earth's forces at work, the diamond has fascinated all realms of society, from Russian tsars and Hollywood stars to scientists and brides-to-be. The Nature of Diamonds is an authoritative and richly illustrated look at nature's most coveted gem. Leading geologists, gemologists, physicists, and cultural observers cover every facet of the stone, from its formation in the depths of the Earth and its explosive ascent to the surface, to its economic, regal, social, and technological roles. The book takes the reader to cutting-edge research on the frontiers of diamond exploration and exploitation, from Arctic wastes to laboratories that create industrial diamonds for cutting tools that slice through rock. Charting the history of mining from its origins in India and Brazil, the book follows the diamond rush in South Africa to today's high-tech enterprises. It provides a glimpse into the economics of the diamond trade, and an overview of diamond cutting, from the rough uncut stones in early Indian and Roman jewelry to the multifaceted stones we see today. The cultural history of the diamond as both a revered and a social symbol is explored, from its early history as the exclusive property of royalty to today's brilliant-laden jewelry as an emblem of wealth and status. The engaging text is complemented by more than 200 lavish illustrations which span fine art, earth science, and cultural studies and capture the brilliance and beauty of this extraordinary gem.
