Using thermodynamics and statistics to improve the quality of life cycle inventory data Bhavik R. Bakshi, Hangjoon Kim and Prem K. Goel; 10. Developing sustainable technology: metrics from thermodynamics Geert Van der Vorst, Jo Dewulf and Herman Van Langenhove; 11. Entropy production and resource consumption in life cycle assessments Stefan Goessling-Reisemann; 12. Exergy and material flow in industrial and ecological systems Nandan Ukidwe and Bhavik R. Bakshi; 13. Materials flow analysis and input-output analysis: a synthesis Shinichiro Nakamura; Part IV. Economic, Social Industrial, Eco Systems: 14. Early development of input-output analysis of energy and ecologic systems Bruce Hannon; 15. Exergoeconomics and exergoenvironmental analysis George Tsatsaronis; 16. Entopy, economics and policy Matthias Ruth; 17. Integration and segregation in a population - a thermodynamicist's view Mueller Ingo; 18. Exergy use in ecosystems analysis: background and challenges Roberto Pastres and Brian D. Fath; 19. Thoughts on the application of thermodynamics to the development of sustainability science Timothy Gutowski, Dusan Sekulic and Bhavik R. Bakshi.
