Sustainable Engineering may be defined as engineering for human development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Examples of Sustainable Engineering include:
Using methods that minimize environmental damage to provide sufficient food, water, shelter, and mobility for a growing world population,Designing products and processes so that wastes from one are used as inputs to another, Incorporating environmental and social constraints as well as economic considerations into engineering decisions.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
