One Line Description
This state-of-the-art text covers some of the most hot-button issues in the pharmaceutical industry, covering new, greener processes for engineers, scientists, and students to move the pharmaceutical industry into sustainability.

Pharmacists, engineers, scientists, and researchers in the pharmaceutical industry, students and faculty in chemical engineering and medical departments.

From Professor Rafiq Islam and his team comes another penetrating and challenging work, a four-volume series exposing the wrong and dangerous pathways taken, including the sources of those pathways, to engineer another branch of contemporary science and technology to socially beneficial ends. Dr. Islam and his co-authors achieved notoriety for delving into the idea of sustainability in the petroleum industry, an industry long thought to be antithetical to such a concept. They developed a workable philosophy and created a new methodology and paradigm as a lens through which to see petroleum engineering.

In the current series of volumes on pharmaceutical engineering, Islam et al. come together one more time to apply the same principles of sustainability as a practical metric for similarly transforming pharmaceutical research and development. This series locates the root of the problem in the widely-accepted yet largely uninvestigated assumption that the natural order linking all living organisms is just another mechanical system albeit more complex than most such systems. In the same way that their work on energy resource management did, this study of the pharmaceutical industry illuminates the negative consequences flowing from an overly rigid focus on the purely mechanical aspects, especially regarding the negative consequences flowing from money-driven, tangibles-focused development when it comes to preventing disease and promoting sustainable healing of the body by whatever is already available in the body.

This ground-breaking series is a unique and state-of-the-art study that only appears here, within these pages. A fascinating study for the engineer, scientist, and pharmacist working in the pharmaceutical industry and interested in sustainability, it is also a valuable textbook for students and faculty studying these subjects.

Supplementary Data
• As part of a 4-volume set, kicks off the discussion with an examination of the deepest roots and consequences of the conventional scientific outlook applied to problems of pharmaceutical engineering.
• Includes critical analysis of all major theories and ‘laws’ of science and social science, including those advanced by Newton, Einstein, and Charles Darwin
• Sets stages for correcting all major theories of New science by invoking paradigm shift

Author / Editor Details
M. R. Islam, PhD is a world-wide consultant on environment and energy-related issues. Dr. Islam is known as the most published engineer in the world. He is credited to have coined terms, such as “green petroleum” and “sustainable petroleum development” at a time when “sustainable petroleum” was considered to be an oxymoron. Dr. Islam’s most notable contributions are in the areas of sustainability, environmental integrity, and knowledge modeling, on which topic he has written dozens of books and over 700 research papers.

Jaan S. Islam has been active in research on the topics of science and social science. He is a co-author of the theory of mass, energy, time, and human thought material that formed the core of a number of books, including the current series. His previous works include Reconstituting the Curriculum (with M.R. Islam & Gary Zatzman).

Gary M. Zatzman has decades of investigative journalism and research experience, dozens of articles in technical journals, and four previously published books: Sustainable Resource Development, Sustainable Energy Pricing, Economics of Intangibles (with M.R. Islam), and Reconstituting the Curriculum (with M.R. & J.S. Islam).

M. Safiur Rahman, PhD is the principal scientific officer at Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission in the field of environmental engineering. Since 2000, Dr. Rahman has been carrying out research works related to the distribution of toxic trace elements in surface and ground water, food chains and the environment for many government agencies and has published over 100 scientific articles and several books.

M.A.H. Mughal is a prominent philanthropist, author, speaker, mentor and a business consultant with 22 years of global experience with some of the world’s top companies. He is the author of many articles and is a Chartered Fellow of the British Computer Society and holds many professional designations.
