subject: Journal of Industrial Ecology Premieres!

The MIT Press is proud to announce the publication of the first issue of
the Journal of Industrial Ecology.  The journal, which is edited at the
Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and published by the MIT
Press for Yale University, is an international, multi-disciplinary
quarterly designed to foster understanding and practice in this emerging
field. 

Industrial ecology systematically examines local, regional and global
materials and energy uses and flows in products, processes, industrial
sectors, and entire economies.  It focuses on the potential role that
corporations can play in protecting the environment by incorporating
environmental considerations in product and process design. 

JIE's premiere issue, published this month, demonstrates the breadth of 
this developing discipline, with articles on topics such as:
        - Lead and Electric Vehicles
        - Limits to Life-Cycle Impact Assessment
        - Chlorine Flows and the Environment
        - The Kalundborg Industrial Ecosystem
        - Cleaner Production and Industrial Ecology
        - Organic Cotton at Patagonia
        - Design for Environment at Motorola
Also included are reviews of the latest publications in industrial ecology.

For a look at the complete contents of the first issue, see the journal's

This web page also contains information on subscribing, instructions for
authors, and will soon feature article abstracts, a sample article, and
online letters to the editor.
