Couverture de l’ouvrage Chemical issues in biomass burning in sub-saharan africa
Chemical Issues in Biomass Burning in Sub-Saharan Africa explores all the aspects relevant to biomass burning in Sub-SaharanAfrica, with special focus on chemistry aspects. Biomass burning implies emission of combustion products into the air(including greenhouse gases) and the waste/loss of biomass that could beutilized as valuable material resource. The extent of biomass burning in Sub-Saharan Africa, and the complexity of the aspects involved, constitutes animportant motivation to view it as a problem deserving priorityChemical Issues in Biomass Burning in Sub-Saharan Africa is aimed at undergraduates, graduates, and policy makers working in Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Science Education. hemists,Environmental Scientists, Science Educators.

Environmental Issues of Biomass Burning in Sub-Saharan African Countries.- Burning Biomass: Environmental Impact on the Soil.- Trace Gas Emissions from Biomass Burning in Southern Africa’s Savannah.- Trace Gas Emissions from Domestic Biofuel Combustion in Southern Africa.- Burning of Biomass in the Democratic Republic of Congo.- Biomass Burning in Lesotho.- Alternative Techniques and Sustainable Methods for the Valorisation of Lignocellulosic Biomass.- Interplays Between Collection of Information, Dissemination of Information and Promotion of Environmentally-Benign Behaviour Patterns.- Harnessing Folk Media for Effective Environmental Communication: The Case of Biomass Burning in Sub-Saharan Africa.- Fires, Burning and Flames Narratives: Reflections on Some African Indigenous Perspectives.- What Can Be Learnt from the Brazilian Cerrado?

Liliana Mammino is a professor emeritus in the Department of Chemistry of the University of Venda (South Africa), where she has being working since September 1997, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate physical chemistry courses, the first year general chemistry course (until 2013) and the process technology course. Her previous work experience include the National University of Somalia (1974 and 1975), the University of Zambia (1988-1992) and the National University of Lesotho (1993-1996). She holds a degree in chemistry from the University of Pisa (Italy, her home country) and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Moscow State University (Russia). Her research interests comprise theoretical chemistry (her field of specialisation), with particular attention to the computational study of biologically active molecules, and chemistry education, with particular attention to conceptual understanding and the role of language, and to the education for sustainable development. She has published extensively in both areas. She has being chairperson of international conferences, including the Fifth International IUPAC Conference on Green Chemistry (Durban, 2014) the Second African Conference on Research in Chemistry Education (Thohoyandou, 2015) and the XXIII International Workshop on Quantum Systems in Chemistry, Physics and Biology, which will be held in the Kruger National Park in September 2018. She is an associate member of Division III of IUPAC and a member of the Committee on Chemistry Education of IUPAC. She is also a lifetime member of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (WATOC). In 2013, she was one of the recipients of the IUPAC Award for Distinguished Women in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. In 2016 she received the ALASA (African Languages Association of Southern Africa) award for sociolinguistics.
