This particular volume, Nitrogen and Phosphorus Solvents, is the second in a comprehensive and up-to-date series. The introduction of new nitrogen- and phosphorus- containing solvents used in industry has been accompanied by an explosion of knowledge about their properties, toxicity and metabolism. Even a relatively simple compound such as N .

    An overview of the cultural evolution of material flows and stocks with an emphasis on the design of metabolic processes in urban systems. Over the last several thousand years of human life on Earth, agricultural settlements became urban cores, and these regional settlements became tightly connected through infrastructures transporting people, materials, and information. This . Industrial ecology is a concept that has emerged in response to growing public concern about the impact of industry on the environment. In this framework the natural flow (or circulation) of materials and energy that takes place in biological ecosystems becomes a model for more efficient industrial "metabolism.".

    The Journal of Industrial Ecology addresses a series of related topics: material and energy flows studies ('industrial metabolism') technological change. dematerialization and decarbonization. life cycle planning, design and assessment. design for the environment. extended producer responsibility ('product stewardship'). Knowledge of metabolism in the industrial per iod was framed by manufactu r- ing and energy; knowledge of metabolism in the postindustrial p eriod is suffused with environmental r Author: Hannah Landecker.

Industrial Metabolism by Robert U. Ayres Download PDF EPUB FB2

The word metabolism, as used in its original biological context, connotes the internal processes of a living organism. The organism ingests energy-rich, low-entropy materials (food), to provide for its own maintenance and functions, as well as a surplus to permit growth or.

Industrial metabolism is a concept to describe the material and energy turnover of industrial systems. It was proposed by Robert Ayres in analogy to the biological metabolism as "the whole integrated collection of physical processes that convert raw materials and energy, plus labour, into finished products and wastes " In analogy to the biological concept of metabolism, which is.

The industrial metabolism approach is introduced and discussed through different types of studies. Historical studies of heavy metals in Europe are used for illustration and for discussing how spatial patterns of emissions and deposition have changed over time.

In the pharmaceutical industry, the incorporation of the disciplines of pharma- kinetics, pharmacodynamics, and drug metabolism (PK/PD/DM) into various drug development processes has been recognized to be extremely important.

The NaCl recovered via the advanced process can be supplied into the chlor-alkali industry to replace imported salt.

It is a novel approach to depart from the current industrial Cl metabolism which involves high input and high discharge, which will reduce dependency in scarce imported salt, prepare PVC materials to be used as feedstock materials for hydrocarbons recovery in Cited by: 4.

This book discusses as well the physiological factors that affect metabolism, including age, sex, pregnancy, disease, and the nutritional state of the animal. The final chapter deals with the metabolism of some of the commonly used industrial chemicals.

This book is designed specifically for industrial scientists, laboratory assistants, and managers who are involved in PK/PD/DM-related areas. It consists of thirteen chapters, each of which deals with a particular PK/PD/DM issue and its industrial applications.
