Information Systems for Industrial Environmental Management [chapter]

L. M. Hilty
1995 Environmental Informatics  
Environmental management needs to be supported by computer-aided environmental information and management (CAEM) systems.  ...  Industrial environmental management should also take into account the dynamics of production systems and product life cycles, which requires different methods of environmental assessment.  ...  Such systems are called environmentally oriented PPC (EPPC) systems (Haasis 1994) . Other approaches emerge from the field of ecobalances.  ...
