Abstract: Industrial ecology is coming of age and this book brings together leading scholars to present a state-of-the-art overview of the subject. Each part of the book comprehensively covers the following issues in a systematic style: the goals and achievements of industrial ecology and the history of the field; methodology, covering the main approaches to analysis and assessment; economics and industrial ecology; industrial ecology at the national/regional level; industrial ecology at the sectoral/materials level; and applications and policy implications. The authors are all experts at the cutting edge of the field and the bibliography alone should prove useful as a comprehensive guide to the literature. This handbook should be a valuable reference for students and scholars working in environmental management, industrial ecology and environmental and ecological studies.
