Talk:Industrial ecology

    From Consumerium development wiki R&D Wiki

    This is one of the main four ideas of w:Natural Capitalism (see, the other three are:

    • extreme energy conservation
    • extreme materials conservation
    • redefining all products as services
    really ? we need these four then

    When these four are done, there is no such thing as "waste" because all waste is a "resource" to something else, and there is no such thing as "products" or even "commodities" since they are defined as harvesting, processing, distributing, collecting and disposal services that happen to provide services to users in between. This is the most powerful idea, since product lifecycle must be considered by the maker not the user.

    Is there a w:industrial ecology article in wikipedia? There should also be w:product stewardship and w:service ecology which are the more advanced ideas of an assessment.

    nope. none. There is not even an article on waste...but that's fair since "waste" is just a pov :-)
