About this book

The Economics of Industrial Water Use presents a collection of the most important articles to have applied economic models and measurement techniques to the topic of industrial water use over the last 30 years. It includes an original introductory chapter which summarizes and critically assesses the literature on this important subject. These papers employ a range of modelling approaches including econometric estimation, linear programming, input-output models, non-market valuation and integrated river basin planning models. They also provide empirical evidence of the significant role played by economic forces in determining industrial water intake, discharge and recirculation. This volume should be a valuable reference source for those with an interest in water's role in industrial applications.

Ziegler and Stephen E. Bell; comments on "estimating demand by self-supplying firms", Ronald Teeples and David Glyer; estimating the structure of industrial water demands - the case of Canadian manufacturing, Steven Renzetti; examining the differences in self- and publicly supplied firms' water demands, Steven Renzetti. Part 3 Cost function models of manufacturing water demands: estimation of substitution possibilities between water and other production inputs, Frederick G. Babin et al; substituting for water inputs in US manufacturing, Charles R. Grebenstein and Barry C. Field. Part 4 Programming models of industrial water use: industrial water demands, J.C.
