Parametric life cycle assessment of a reusable brick veneer
The rationales behind the initiative are i to speed up progress and facilitate cumulative research by making more data easier available, ii to increase the usage of research results outside our own field, and iii to respond to the increasing number of transparency demands from research funders. Part of our mandate is to review data sharing practice with a focus on best practice and recommend improvements for the different IE research fields. In that regard, I have two requests: 1 For a JIE forum piece on the topic, which is to be launched at the Chicago conference, we are looking for examples for exceptional transparency in MFA research.
The template is attached; it includes some examples for datasets and detailed explanations. It is meant as a point of departure to establish a minimal consensus of how MFA data should be structured, and it is clear that many MFA results will require additional specifiers, represented as columns in the template, to be fully described.
- Crafting the Witch: Gendering Magic in Medieval and Early Modern England (Studies in Medieval History and Culture).
- 2nd Edition.
- Genki I: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese I - Workbook (English and Japanese Edition).
The plan is to publish the attached template as supplementary material along with the forum piece. On behalf of the task force, I would very much appreciate your input on transparent MFA research and your feedback on the data template!
Maybe there is a data expert in your group who could contribute to the process? Please respond by April 30 so that we have time for revisions and a possible second feedback round.
Material Flow Analysis and Waste Management
Please use this link to the template for the readers to download:. Labels: News , Research. Monday, 13 March Brunner and Helmut Rechberger has recently been released. It features a concise description of MFA freeware STAN, explores a fresh, data-based treatment of uncertainty and contains new case studies about resource and waste management.
Brunner Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria Helmut Rechberger Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria In this second edition of a bestseller, authors guide professional newcomers as well as experienced engineers and scientists towards mastering the art of material flow analysis MFA from the very beginning to an advanced state of material balances of complex systems. This book serves as a concise and reproducible methodology and a basis for analysis, assessment and improvement of anthropogenic systems through an approach that is helpfully uniform and standardized; a vital resource for the growing MFA community working in the fields of industrial ecology, resource management, waste management, and environmental protection.
K December , pp. Wednesday, 1 March The Journal of Economic Structures is calling for papers on "Multiregional input-output analysis for global resource policy". The Special Issue aims to summarize the recent progress of MRIO analysis focusing on natural resources and to understand its potential for the design of global resource policies.

We are inviting papers on the analysis of natural resource use with MRIO models and welcome any analysis on specific resources or specific countries. Submission deadline for abstracts is 31 May Tuesday, 28 February POST from Dr. The membership of the Socio-Economic Metabolism section of International Society for Industrial Ecology will be probably interested in the call for papers attached to my letter. CASES Change and Adaptation in Socio-Ecological Systems is an open access interdisciplinary journal that deals with the interrelations of human beings with ecosystems in sustainable land use and land development.

Methods and tools of different temporal and spatial analyses were successfully established and applied by a broadening scientific community. Recently, one of the paths providing a deeper understanding of sustainability problems and resource requirement in particular, has been the joint analysis of material stocks and flows. Results have revealed an extremely high physical amount of stocks, relative to flows, in societal systems thus material stocks may intensely influence or even determine the resource use.
Utilization of increasing amounts of natural resources will lead to significant changes in the ecosystem, to which adaptation capacity is uncertain.
logtachapseaco.ml Articles submitted to CASES Special Issue will deal with theoretic issues and evidences for crucial role of material stocks and flows in the socio-ecological systems. Socio-Ecological Systems are a leading and internationally approved concept for understanding, describing and modeling the complex human-nature environment. Paul H. Together with Peter Baccini from ETH Zurich, he published the landmark book Metabolism of the Anthroposphere, presenting a new view of the interactions among human activities, resources, and the environment.
His work focuses on advanced methods for waste treatment and on concepts to assess, evaluate, and design metabolic systems. For more than 40 years, Dr. Brunner has been engaged in research and teaching in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
As a member of many boards of journals and conferences, he successfully promoted the application of material flow analysis for improving decision making in resource and waste management. He received his professional education in Vienna with Paul H. Since then, he has been engaged in research and teaching and has become internationally acknowledged for his research work in the fields of resource and waste management.
