Special Issue Information

The limitations of a linear economy have been observed. The representative example is climate change. The dichotomy that separate environment from economy and treat environment as inputs for economic activities or sites for waste disposal cannot be sustained anymore. A circular economy is an imperative and new paradigm for us to pursue. This Special Issue aims to collect up-to-date research articles that explore and examine sustainable energy and waste policies from a more comprehensive perspective. This Special Issue will incorporate research articles that examine current energy and waste policies, qualitatively and quantitatively (e.g., life-cycle-assessment, energy modeling, etc.).
