Implementing Industrial Ecology: Methodological Tools and by Cyril Adoue

By Cyril Adoue

This ebook is the fruit of the author’s six years of analysis and fieldwork undertaken whereas on the Centre for Sustainable improvement examine and Interdisciplinary Studies—Troyes collage of know-how. The study and box paintings have been focused on fabric and effort movement loops, the primary device that commercial ecology places ahead which will restrict environmental and monetary affects as a result of the abuse of typical assets. The ebook is geared toward these answerable for supplying somewhat substance to the target of sustainable improvement. It additionally goals to disseminate this knowledge in the direction of destiny caretakers of the planet who this present day occupy seats at universities.

This kind of study generally produces, for the directors of a territory, information strategic for identifying local existing or forth-coming problems, as well as some of the solutions. The republic of the Geneva canton (approximately 420,000 inhabitants) has for example, started a study of material and energy metabolism within the framework of its Agenda 21. Figure 9 represents the total results of the main types of flows consumed, emitted and stocked by the “Geneva canton” system.

The existence of an entrepreneurial make-up, operating in a network can be a seducing argument for a business in search of a place to locate itself. The knowledge of material and energy output flows of companies implanted in a zone also enables attracting businesses which could potentially be synergic and therefore envisage a reduction in their production costs. Social field “Human beings are at the centre of concerns regarding sustainable development”[NU92]. Therefore its implementation naturally implies taking a large number of social factors into account.

The easy use of the argument regarding the “durability” of solutions put forward by eco-industrial development implies a serious analysis. Environmental field On an environmental level, the impact of eco-industrial synergies seems clear: © 2011 by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC 44 Implementing Industrial Ecology • natural resource savings (energetic resources, minerals…) used to produce raw materials, from the extraction of these resources to their final transformation, • reduction of emissions related to classical treatment (incineration, land-filled…) but also related to emissions from the early part of the production cycle.
