The Greening of Industrial Ecosystems

£34.99

Product description

National Academy Press. 1994. First Edition. Hardback. No DJ. Book Condition: As new. Internally clean. Binding tight and appears little read, no annotations or inscriptions. Text and illustrations bright and clear throughout. In the 1970s, the first wave of environmental regulation targeted specific sources of pollutants. In the 1990s, concern is focused not on the ends of pipes or the tops of smokestacks but on sweeping regional and global issues. This landmark volume explores the new industrial ecology, an emerging framework for making environmental factors an integral part of economic and business decision making. Experts on this new frontier explore concepts and applications, including: bringing international law up to par with many national laws to encourage industrial ecology principles; integrating environmental costs into accounting systems; understanding design for environment, industrial "metabolism," and sustainable development and how these concepts will affect the behavior of industrial and service firms. The volume looks at negative and positive aspects of technology and addresses treatment of waste as a raw material. This volume will be important to domestic and international policymakers, leaders in business and industry, environmental specialists, and engineers and designers.
