The contributors to this volume draw on their experience in a varietyof disciplinesnbsp;to explore the origins, promise, and relevance ofthe emerging field of industrial ecology. They situate industrialecology within the broader range of environmental management strategiesand concepts, from the practices of pollution prevention through lifecycle management, to the more fundamental shift towarddematerialization and ecological design. Their work not only affirmswhat has been learned to date in this nascent field but also providesnew insight by demonstrating that technologies are socially andpolitically embedded. This book makes a compelling argument for theneed to think ecologically to develop innovative and competitiveindustrial policy.
