the Faculty of Engineering at Alexandria University has taken the initiative to organize a series of conferences, every other year, on the Role of Engineering towards a Better Environment: RETBE. The upcoming 4th international conference, RETBE’2002, will be held in Alexandria during the period December 21-23, 2002.
With a rising global population and ever increasing levels of consumption, there is a need for significant increases in the efficiency of resource use. So, the theme of the conference is "Ecologically Sustainable Industrial Development". The conference still continues to uphold the mission of the preceding conferences, to emphasize challenges facing the growing environmental problems in the absence of appropriate measures of environmental protection. The scope of the conference has been extended further to include industrial ecology and ecological assessment analysis including ecological production and consumption patterns. The conference will offer an excellent opportunity for Engineers, Scientists, Investigators, Practitioners and Administrators to exchange views and proficiency to achieve pioneering, cost-effective and long-term approaches for undertaking environmental issues.

Topics Include:
• Industrial Ecology
• Marine ecology
• Ecological risk Assessment
• Plants retrofitting and Dematerialization
• Urban Sustainability
• Environmental Strategies, Standards and Regulations
• Environmental Risk Management
• Cleaner Production and Eco-efficiency
• Pollution Monitoring and Control
• Waste Management and Control
• Environmental Impact Assessment
• Environmental Strategies, Standards and Regulations
• Life cycle assessment
• Energy and Alternative Energy
• Ecologically-Oriented Engineering Education and Training
• Global Warming
