This publication is the fruit of the author’s six years of analysis and fieldwork undertaken whereas on the Centre for Sustainable improvement learn and Interdisciplinary Studies—Troyes collage of know-how. The examine and box paintings have been focused on fabric and effort circulation loops, the valuable device that business ecology places ahead that allows you to restrict environmental and monetary affects as a result of the abuse of common assets. The e-book is aimed toward these chargeable for delivering a little substance to the target of sustainable improvement. It additionally goals to disseminate this knowledge in the direction of destiny caretakers of the planet who this present day occupy seats at universities.

Good knowledge of the situation is essential before action can be taken. The same thing applies for industrial ecology. The field comprises an array of tools enabling the provision of quantitative information on the situation of the system which must be acted upon. In order to sustain decision-making and action, the objective is to identify and to quantify material and energy stocks and flows which constitute the system to be studied. This material and energy compatibility completes a classic financial compatibility too poor in information, whereby only monetized flows appear.

These can be degraded by bacteria in a reactor where the conditions (temperature, aerobic or anaerobic) are very strict (increasing investment and costs of use). Finally, it is possible to reduce other kinds of nuisances (for example the odor of sludge using the process of ozonation) but the costs remain high compared to the importance of the pollution treated. This type of approach also has the disadvantage of transforming the preservation of the environment into an economic cost and the burden becomes increasingly heavy to support by the different parties concerned.

The proposed solution is therefore to work on the recyclability of some of this waste and to favor the use of recycled materials by professionals. The measures that have been envisaged are: the creation of recycling sites (separating, crushing, grading…) or the construction of demonstration works using obtained materials. In this type of study the data sources are often varied. ). Others are the results of calculations or statistics. The nature of the information obviously depends on the nature of the studied system.
