Dear members of the ISIE student chapter,
Most of you should already have access to the articles in the special issue of the JIE via your ISIE memberships, but could you forward this announcement to other lists and people who might be interested?
Journal of Industrial Ecology
Material flow analysis (MFA), the tracking and analysis of materials through the environment and the economy at various scales, holds out the promise of a unique lens through which to examine environmental challenges, providing a valuable addition to the toolkit available to analysts and decision makers.
The Journal of Industrial Ecology announces a special issue on applications of MFA. This special issue describes a variety of ways in which MFA has addressed real world situations around the globe, particularly relating to problems of resource scarcity, pollution abatement and waste management.
Articles in the special issue are available for free download at http://www.wiley.com/go/appsmfa for a limited time. A modest number of free print copies are available for students, researchers from developing countries and journalists (contact: [log in to unmask]).
Prof. Ester van der Voet, of the Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML) at Leiden University, the Netherlands, Prof. Claudia Binder of the Institute of Systems Sciences, Innovation and Sustainability Research (ISIS) at the University of Graz, Austria, and Dr. Kirsten Rosselot of Process Profiles, Calabasas, California, served as co-editors of the special issue.
The Journal of Industrial Ecology, a peer-reviewed international scientific journal, is owned by Yale University, headquartered at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and published by Wiley-Blackwell. It is the official journal of the International Society for Industrial Ecology.
Support for this special issue was provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
