Designing for Zero Waste : Consumption, Technologies and the Built Environment, Paperback / softback Book

Designing for Zero Waste : Consumption, Technologies and the Built Environment Paperback / softback

Edited by Steffen (University of South Australia) Lehmann, Robert (University of South Australia) Crocker

Description

Designing for Zero Waste is a timely, topical and necessary publication.

Materials and resources are being depleted at an accelerating speed and rising consumption trends across the globe have placed material efficiency, waste reduction and recycling at the centre of many government policy agendas, giving them an unprecedented urgency.

While there has been a considerable literature addressing consumption and waste reduction from different disciplinary perspectives, the complex nature of the problem requires an increasing degree of interdisciplinarity.

Resource recovery and the optimisation of material flow can only be achieved alongside and through behaviour change to reduce the creation of material waste and wasteful consumption.

This book aims to develop a more robust understanding of the links between lifestyle, consumption, technologies and urban development.
