Info about e-books

The first issue of Environment and Energy presents a introduction written by two guest Professors, Maria Claudia Lucchetti and Gerhard Vogel, representing the Commodity Science sector in the Italian and international contest.
The book is divided in three sections differently focused. First section, "Environment Management and territorial sustainability", presents five works investigating the relations between territory with its resources, firms and police-makers, with a particular attention to the environmental assessment tools and eco-governance development methods. Second section is "Energy Methods and Tools"; it concerns relevant aspects related to energy sustainability. In four papers are analyzed solar energy technology, nuclear power energy, bio-energy district and the state of the art about energy certification of buildings. Third and last section is focused on "Industrial Ecology and Environmental tools". This represents a significative research experiences collection about social network analysis, plase-based approach and principles of industrial ecology, with a further contribute on LCA method improvement presented by Prof. Reinout Heijungs, one of the principal international expert about LCA method and application. This book collects researches of several Commodity Science Italian Academy, in particular Torino, Pescara, Molise, Salerno, Messina and Roma 3.

Giuseppe Ioppolo , editor of this first issue, is currently a researcher of commodity science at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Messina (Italy), where he also teaches Technology and quality. He received his Ph.D. and Post Doc in Technology and Economics of Processes and Products for Environmental Safety.
