Progress in

Industrial Ecology

An International Journal

© Inderscience Enterprises Limited 2013


Scope of the Journal

PIE contributes to international research and practice in industrial ecology for sustainable

development. PIE aims to bridge material and energy flow analysis (MEFA) and business

studies, management and organisational studies and corporate environmental

management. In this way, our objective is to contribute to the ecological, but also to the

social and economic dimensions, of sustainable development. While the approach of

combining engineering and natural science orientated methods with social science or

business economics methods is a novel and fresh contribution to the theory of industrial

ecology, the journal also sees this bridge as the critical step that must be taken to turn

industrial ecology theory to industrial ecology practice.

Subject coverage:

Topics covered include the following, with the

underlying aim to contribute to sustainable

development through industrial ecology research

and practice:

Material and energy flow analysis

Industrial metabolism

• Material flow analysis (MFA)

• Energy flow analysis

• Life cycle assessment (LCA)

• Substance flow analysis (SFA)

• Eco-industrial parks, industrial symbiosis and

industrial ecosystems

Business strategy, environmental management

and industrial ecology

• Business strategy and inter-organisational

environmental management

• Life cycle management

• Environmental supply chain management
