Contents Notes
The trend in industry and with EPA is to prevent wastes before they are created instead of treating or disposing of them later. This book assists design/systems engineers and managers in designing or changing a product or set of processes in order to minimize the negative impact on the environment during its life cycle. It explains the overall concept of environmental life cycle analysis and breaks down each of the stages, providing a clear picture of the issues involved. Ch. 1. Introduction -- Ch. 2. Overview -- Ch. 3. Life Cycle Framework -- Ch. 4. General Issues -- Ch. 5. Raw Materials and Energy Inventory -- Ch. 6. Manufacturing, Formulation, and Processing -- Ch. 7. Distribution and Transportation -- Ch. 8. Use -- Reuse -- Maintenance -- Ch. 9. Recycle -- Waste Management -- Ch. 10. Summary.
