Handbook of Input-Output Economics in Industrial Ecology (Eco-Efficiency in Industry and Science #23) (Hardcover)
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, NTNU, Leiden, Michigan at Ann Arbor, Carnegie Mellon, Berkeley, Lisbon and Tokyo. IE deals with stocks and flows in interconnected networks of industry and the environment, which relies on a basic framework for analysis. This handbook is an outcome of a joint working group shared by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) and the International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) launched in 2003 to accommodate this need. This book contains both theories and various applications in detail and embraces key principles and knowledge that are indispensable to utilize the rich assets of IOA for IE.
