Senior Manager Adrian Gomez Balboa has published a 2015 update of Legislación Ambiental para Ingenieros (Environmental Legislation for Engineers), a Spanish-language reference book that connects the environmental laws, regulations and standards with industrial practice in Mexico.
This update highlights amendments to the General Law for Ecological Equilibrium and Environmental Protection (LGEEPA), including regulations regarding environmental impact assessments and air emissions. Also included are updates on the Regulation of the General Law on Climate Change, changes to the Federal Rights Law associated with water supply and wastewater discharges, and recently released Toxic Release Inventory standards.
The book was written for both practical and academic use, identifying the primary issues facing the environmental industry, the most significant environmental requirements for industrial activities and best management practices for facilities. Legislación Ambiental para Ingenieros is also geared toward engineering students, and is meant to provide a practical look at the requirements of the industry in Mexico. Book topics include environmental impact assessment, air emissions, water supply and wastewater discharges, hazardous and non-hazardous waste, chemical release inventories, and environmental civil responsibilities, among other requirements.
