Accounting for Resources: v. 2 The Life Cycle of Materials

1 - 2 weeks availability


This companion volume to "Accounting for Resources, 1" tracks the life-cycle of specific elements, such as chlorine and heavy metals, in order to estimate the generation and dissipative losses of material wastes. It proposes a new quantitive measure of the potential for environmental harm of waste materials, and includes case studies to add weight to its conclusions. Four horizontal life cycle case studies are included, one for chlorine and chlorine chemicals, mercury, arsenic and cadmium, and the other for the copper, lead and zinc group. The book also includes a longitudinal study of heavy metals use and dissipation, during the period 1880-1980 with reference to the Huson-Raritan basin. It concludes with an overview, including some recommendations for future research and for policy changes with respect to government statistical data collection and organization.
