Yale environmental journal translated into ChineseNovember 12, 2004
The Journal of Industrial Ecology (JIE), an international peer-reviewed English-language quarterly, owned by Yale University and published by MIT Press, has recently translated summaries (abstracts) of all its articles into Chinese.
The translations were done as part of an ongoing effort to foster increased international dialogue. The translations are available at the Journal's website, http://mitpress.mit.edu/jie/translations.
"As China's role in the global environment grows, so too does the importance of high-quality scientific research and communication," said Reid Lifset, JIE editor in chief. As the sixth largest economy and most populous country in the world, China's development plays a crucial role in the future of the global environment.
"This project is especially timely because the Chinese government has announced the 'circular economy' (xun huan jing ji) as a centerpiece of Chinese environmental policy," said Lifset. "The circular economy and industrial ecology (chan ye sheng tai xue) strongly overlap. Both emphasize loop closing--recycling in the broadest sense--as a means of moving toward an environmentally sustainable economy."
JIE is the premier journal in the rapidly growing field of industrial ecology, which systematically examines local, regional and global uses and flows of materials and energy in products, processes, industrial sectors and economies. Industrial ecology focuses on the potential role of industry in reducing environmental burdens throughout the product life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials, to the production of goods, to the use of those goods and to the management of the resulting wastes. The Journal is a highly-regarded peer-reviewed quarterly, which has been praised for both its readability and timely relevance to key environmental issues. It is the official journal of the International Society for Industrial Ecology.

Industrial Ecology and the Automobile
by Thomas E. Graedel (Author), Braden R. Allenby (Author)
For courses in Industrial Ecology, or as a supplement in Mechanical Engineering courses on Internal Combustion Engines, or courses in Introduction to Engineering or Environmental Engineering. This new text uses the automobile, a major component of industrialized society, as a case study to examine the relationship between industry and environment. It examines the impacts of production and use, as well as the questions of designing with the environment in mind. Although the focus is on the automobile, the concepts, suggestions, and insights are appropriate to all technologies. View Details

This inaugural volume in the Ohio University Press Series in Ecology and History is the paperback edition of Conrad Totman’s widely acclaimed study of Japan’s environmental policies over the centuries.
Professor Totman raises the critical question of how Japan’s steeply mountainous woodland has remained biologically healthy despite centuries of intensive exploitation by a dense human population that has always been dependent on wood and other forest products. Mindful that in global terms this has been a rare outcome, and one that bears directly on Japan’s recent experience as... View Details
