  • The Social Embeddedness of Industrial Ecology

    From its inception, the field of industrial ecology has taken a distinctly technological approach to understanding and improving ecological consequences of industrial activities. Increasingly however, scholars and practitioners are developing perspectives on the social embeddedness of industrial ecology: the ways in which material and energy flows ...

  • Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry, Third Edition

    Written by an expert, using the same approach that made the previous two editions so successful, Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry, Third Edition expands the scope of the book to include the strongly emerging areas broadly described as sustainability science and technology, including green chemistry and industrial ecology. The book provides ...

  • The Dynamics of Regions and Networks in Industrial Ecosystems

    Industrial ecology provides a rigorous and comprehensive description of human production and consumption processes in the larger context of environmental and socioeconomic change. This volume offers methodologies for such descriptions, with contributions covering both basic and advanced analytical concepts and tools to explore the dynamics of ...

  • Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry, Third Edition

    The latest edition of a bestseller, this text expands its scope to explore the emerging area that is broadly described as sustainability science and technology, which includes green chemistry and industrial ecology. It is designed for those who have little or no knowledge of chemistry, but who need the basics of chemical science for their course ...

  • Handbook of Input-Output Economics in Industrial Ecology

    Industrial Ecology (IE) is an emerging multidisciplinary field. University departments and higher education programs are being formed on the subject following the lead of Yale University, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Leiden University, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Carnegie Mellon University, University of ...

  • Environment Conscious Manufacturing

    Hotter temperatures, less arctic ice, loss of habitat—every other day, it seems, global warming and environmental issues make headlines. Consumer-driven environmental awareness combined with stricter recycling regulations have put the pressure on companies to produce and dispose of products in an environmentally responsible manner. Redefining ...

  • Handbook of Pollution Control and Waste Minimization

    Details the legal, organizational, hierarchical, and environmental components of pollution prevention and waste reduction. Illustrates fundamental concepts of pollution prevention, including life-cycle planning and analysis, risk-based pollution control, and industrial ecology. ...

  • Environmental Science and Technology: A Sustainable Approach to Green Science and Technology, Second Edition

    Formally established by the EPA nearly 15 years ago, the concept of green chemistry is beginning to come of age. Although several books cover green chemistry and chemical engineering, none of them transfer green principles to science and technology in general and their impact on the future. Defining industrial ecology, Environmental Science and ...

  • Waste Input-Output Analysis

    The increasing use of input-output analysis (IOA) in Industrial Ecology (IE) for life-cycle assessment (LCA), material flow analysis (MFA), and life-cycle costing (LCC) calls for a self-contained book on IOA that can meet the needs of practitioners without compromising on basic concepts and latest developments. “Waste Input-Output Analysis” ...

  • Perspectives in Life Cycle Impact Assessment

    Perspectives in Life Cycle Impact Assessment: A Structured Approach to Combine Models of the Technosphere, Ecosphere and Valuesphere describes the relationship between subjective and objective elements in Life Cycle Impact Assessment. It suggests a new framework which will allow people to master two of the major problems associated with LCA, ...

  • Valuation of Ecological Resources: Integration of Ecology and Socioeconomics in Environmental Decision Making

    Choosing the optimal management option requires environmental risk managers and decision makers to evaluate diverse, and not always congruent, needs and interests of multiple stakeholders. Understanding the trade-offs of different options as well as their legal, economic, scientific, and technological implications is critical to performing ...

  • Heavy Metals: A Problem Solved?

    Most publications on heavy metals and the environment have focused on environmental pathways and risks. The present book establishes a link between the environmental risks of heavy metals and the societal causes of the risks. Economic models, substance flow models and environmental fate and risk assessment models have been integrated into a ...

  • Handbook on Life Cycle Assessment

    In 1992 the Centre of Environmental Science (CML) at Leiden University, The Netherlands, published a Guide on Environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology. Many copies of this guide have been sold all over the world, setting the standard for a long time.Since then LCA methodology has progressed enormously and the International ...

  • The Ecology of Mycobacteria

    Detailed information dealing with the ecology of mycobacteria is derived from a variety of different scientific fields such as botany, biochemistry, genetics, immunology, microbiology and epidemiology. This is the first attempt to evaluate this information from an ecological point of view and to develop a strategy for the prevention of ...

  • Strategic Management of Marine Ecosystems

    The demand for advanced management methods and tools for marine ecosystems is increasing worldwide. Today, many marine ecosystems are significantly affected by disastrous pollution from industrial, agricultural, municipal, transportation, and other anthropogenic sources. The issues of environmental integrity are especially acute in the ...
