  1. 1. Systems Analysis for Eco-Industrial Development : Applied on Cement and Biogas Production Systems

    Author : Roozbeh Feiz; Mats Eklund; Jonas Ammenberg; Olli Salmi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industrial ecology; eco-industrial development; multi-criteria analysis; life-cycle assessment; MCA; LCA; uncertainty management; systems analysis; industrial symbiosis; cement; biogas; cement production; biogas solutions;

    Abstract : Our industrial systems are not sustainable—a major challenge which demands several types of responses. Eco-industrial development can be seen as such a response, with the goal to establish industrial systems that are both ecological and economical. Industrial Ecology is another closely related response. READ MORE
