    Abstract : The production of biofuels has increased in recent years, to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate climate change. However, current production practices are heavily criticized on their environmental sustainability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Industrial Symbiosis - A Tool for More Sustainable Regions?

    Author : Murat Mirata; Internationella miljöinstitutet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Technological sciences; Teknik; regional sustainability; distributed economies; Industrial ecology; Industrial symbiosis;

    Abstract : Today's industrial systems are regarded to have unsustainable characteristics. In order to acquire a more sustainable state, fundamental changes are needed in the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the resource flows associated with such systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Industrial Ecology and Development of Production Systems : Analysis of the CO2  Footprint of Cement

    Author : Roozbeh Feiz; Mats Eklund; Jonas Ammenberg; Henrikke Baumann; Linköpings universitet; []

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Top-down Methodology to Identify Opportunities for Industrial Symbiosis Partnerships

    Author : Joao Patricio; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Material Inputs; Industrial Symbiosis; Recycling; Circular Economy; Top-down methods; Industrial Waste;

    Abstract : Industries in Europe are responsible for generating approximately 190 Mtons of waste; a figure which is expected to rise, as a significant increase in the consumption of raw materials is predicted to occur in the near future. This may lead to escalating environmental problems, including resource depletion, soil degradation, and climate change. READ MORE
