About this book

Clean Production Strategies is a cross-disciplinary book that presents a comprehensive examination of a new ethic emphasizing the appropriate design of products, processes and economic activities to reduce the generation of waste into the environment. The book explores concepts and principles, technological issues, economic implications, the development of policy, and broad social questions associated with implementing clean production strategies. Written by a team of international experts in the field, the text covers a wide range of topics, including principles of thermodynamics, quantitative assessments of material flows, the development of practical clean technologies, and the re-evaluation of our relationship with the environment.
