Schonere Productie en Industriële Ecologie : dynamische aspecten in de introductie en de verspreiding van nieuwe concepten in de industriële praktijk (Dutch; Flemish)
This thesis addresses the awareness-raising processes related to the development and dissemination of new concepts such as pollution prevention, cleaner production and industrial ecology. The concepts of Cleaner production and Pollution prevention can both be described as: `the continuous application of an integrated, preventive environmental strategy to both processes and products to reduce risks to humans and the environment’. Industrial ecology is described as: `an integrated system, in which the consumption of energy and materials is optimised and the effluents of one process serve as the raw material(s) or energy for another process’.
