For those interested in how and how much material efficiency and circular economy strategies can contribute to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, I'm pleased to announce the publication of a special issue in the Journal of Industrial Ecology on Material Efficiency and Climate Change Mitigation (bit.ly/JIE-material-efficiency).
The issue presents cutting edge research on new methods, and the connection of material use and the circular economy to greenhouse gas emissions for product lifetimes, infrastructure, buildings, steel, cement, glass, food processing, appliance, electronics and cars.
