Description

The Advances in Industrial Ecology (AIE) Book Series examines current, state-of-the-art studies in the areas of Industrial ecology and Circular economy. Industrial ecology is a rapidly growing field that systematically examines local, regional, and global materials along with energy uses and flows in products, processes, industrial sectors and economies. It focuses on the potential role of industry in reducing environmental burdens throughout the product life cycle from the extraction of raw materials, to the production of goods, to the use of those goods and to the management of the resulting wastes. Industrial ecology is ecological in that it (1) places human activity -- industry in the very broadest sense -- in the larger context of the biophysical environment from which we obtain resources and into which we place our wastes, and (2) looks to the natural world for models of highly efficient use of resources, energy, and byproducts. By selectively applying these models, the environmental performance of industry can be improved. Industrial ecology sees corporate entities as key players in the protection of the environment, particularly where technological innovation is an avenue for environmental improvement. As repositories of technological expertise in our society, corporations provide crucial leverage in attacking environmental problems through product and process design.

The Advances in Industrial Ecology (AIE) Book Series encompasses empirical, analytical, theoretical, reviews, communications, and conceptual research, and comprehensive reviews of relevant research case studies of effective applications in the areas of Industrial ecology and circular economy. It provides a practical and comprehensive forum for exchanging scientific knowledge and ideas which bridge the technological advancement and sustainable practices with industrial ecological management. The goal of this series is to bring together the expertise of professionals who are working in the field of industrial ecology and sustainability across the globe.
