Circular Economy and Sustainability. Volume 2: Environmental Engineering

  • ID: 5308557
  • Book
  • September 2021
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

Sustainability and the Circular Economy: Volume Two, Environmental Policy and Management covers the significant scientific gap between circular economy principles and environmental practice. The book covers multiple aspects, presenting relative strategies and policies at the macro-level. Providing a better understanding of the relevant social and cultural structures and the need for cross-disciplinary knowledge and diverse skills, this book includes theoretical justification, research studies and full-scale case studies to provide researchers, practitioners and policymakers in sustainability, environmental engineering, and environmental management with a clear guide for implementation and future objectives.

The circular economy is based on strategies, policies and technologies for reusing, recycling and recovering water, resources and nutrients to create a more sustainable environment. The increasing complexity of sustainability challenges means that traditional business models and social fields must work together as they cannot solely solve new challenges and make progress in sustainability issues.
