Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue comprises selected papers collated from an international and interdisciplinary annual venture of the “Italian Commodity Science Academy (AISME)” and “Engineers Association of Messina, Italy”, directed by Eng. Santi Trovato, with the advocacy of the International Society of Commodity Science and Technology (IGWT). This year, the Special Issue investigates the topics related to “Environment and Energy from an industrial ecology perspective”. The Industrial Ecology principles highlighted in the articles from Tibbs (1993) and Ayres and Ayres (2002), could be considered as the main support to make environmental considerations as a part of strategy, design, production and product end-of-life activities, through the re-engineering of process and activities in an industrial eco-system.

Commodity Science embraces several research points in the Industrial Ecology framework, including innovative tools, methods and experiences for environmental and energy improvement, technology and quality assessment for sustainability applications.

This Special Issue provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information from the diverse range of disciplines and interest groups which must be combined in order to integrate energy and environmental academy researches with experiences.

Papers selected for this Special Issue were subjected to a rigorous yet efficient peer review procedure in order to achieve a rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
