about

Environmental Carbon Footprints: Industrial Case Studiesprovides a wide range of industrial case-studies, beginning with textiles, energy systems and bio-fuels. Each footprint is associated with background information, scientific consensus and the reason behind its invention, methodological framework, assessment checklist, calculation tool/technique, applications, challenges and limitations. More importantly, applications of each indicator/framework in various industrial sectors and their associated challenges are presented. As case studies are the most flexible of all research designs, this book allows researchers to retain the holistic characteristics of real-life events while investigating empirical events.



  • Includes case studies from various industries, such as textiles, energy systems and conventional and bio-fuels
  • Provides the calculation tool/technique, applications, challenges and limitations for determining carbon footprints on an industry by industry basis
  • Presents the background information, scientific consensus and reason behind each case study
Dr S. S. Muthu works at Global Sustainability Services, Hong Kong
