Roland Clift of the Centre for Environmental Strategy at the University of Surrey, UK, and Shannon Lloyd of Concurrent Technologies Corporation, USA, will serve as co-editors of the special issue.

Journal of Industrial Ecology Call for Papers

New Haven, CT | Posted on December 18th, 2006

The Journal of Industrial Ecology is an international peer-reviewed quarterly owned by Yale University and published by MIT Press (see http://www.mitpressjournals.org/jie ). A detailed call for papers can be found at http://www.yale.edu/jie/cfpnano.htm. Some summary information about the special issue can be found below.

The goal of this special issue is to examine the environmental and human health implications positive and negative of current and potential applications of nanotechnology. Papers that utilize established industrial ecology tools to analyze the impacts of nanotechnology are particularly welcome. Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to:

Life-cycle assessment of nanotechnology-based products,
Materials/substance flow analysis of nanomaterials,
Development of life-cycle impact assessment categories and characterization factors for nanoparticles,
Application of green nanotechnology (e.g., efficient energy conversion devices, green chemistry, green processing, green manufacturing, etc),
End-of-life management for nanomaterials and nanoengineered products,
Informing nanotechnology policy with industrial ecology, and
Development of nanotechnologies to address critical environmental issues and natural resource constraints.
Reviews of relevant recent books and reports, including policy documents, are also sought to enrich the special issue. Reviews of web sites and electronic services will be considered.

Industrial ecology is an emerging field that examines local, regional, and global uses and flows of materials and energy in products, processes, industrial sectors and economies. It focuses on the potential role of industry in reducing environmental burdens throughout the product life cycle.
