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
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.
