This text is devoted to industrial ecology/green engineering. This introduction provides everything instructors need to teach a successful course–including visuals–in one source. The authors use industrial ecology principles and cases to ground the discussion of sustainable engineering, and thus offer practical and reasonable approaches to an otherwise difficult and sometimes otherworldly subject.

Biography
Braden R. Allenby is currently Lincoln Professor of Engineering and Ethics, and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and of Law, at Arizona State University, having moved from his previous position as the Environment, Health and Safety Vice President for AT&T in 2004. He is also a Batten Fellow in Residence at the University of Virginias Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts, Manufactures & Commerce. Dr. Allenby received his BA from Yale University in 1972, his J. D. from the University of Virginia Law School in 1978, his Masters in Economics from the University of Virginia in 1979, his Masters in Environmental Sciences from Rutgers University in the Spring of 1989, and his Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from Rutgers in 1992.
Features
  • Methods to better incorporate concerns about environmental and social issues into design decisions–from the level of products and manufacturing processes to factories and material flow systems–are discussed.
  • A complete suite of homework problems is included.
  • A set of graphs enables professors to present from the start a sophisticated, self-contained course that is of high interest to environmental science, environmental policy, and engineering schools of all types.
