Industrial Ecology (IE) is an emerging multidisciplinary field. University departments and higher education programs are being formed on the subject following the lead of Yale, NTNU, Leiden, Michigan at Ann Arbor, Carnegie Mellon, Berkeley, Lisbon and Tokyo. IE deals with stocks and flows in interconnected networks of industry and the environment, which relies on a basic framework for analysis. Amongst others, Input-Output Analysis (IOA) is recognized as a key conceptual and analytical framework for IE. A major challenge is that the field of IOA manifests a long history since the 1930s and requires considerable analytical rigour (with two Nobel Prize Laureates in the field). This led many instructors and researchers to call for a high-quality publication on the subject which embraces both state-of-the-art theory and principles as well as practical applications.
This handbook is an outcome of a joint working group shared by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) and the International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) launched in 2003 to accommodate this need. This book contains both theories and various applications in detail and embraces key principles and knowledge that are indispensable to utilize the rich assets of IOA for IE.
