Researchers and practitioners working in environmental science face technical and economic challenges that are impacted by society, processing, and legislation. These challenges require that scientists and involved companies pay closer attention to developing processes, services and products that meet the demand for a cleaner environment, cleaner production, and a more sustainable world. Innovation Strategies in Environmental Science introduces and examines economically viable innovations to optimize performance and sustainability. The book includes short and long-term strategies for the development of networks and platform development as well as suggestions for open innovation. Innovation Strategies in Environmental Science also offers innovations and sustainable development ideas in key areas such as urban management and eco-design and concludes with case studies of end user-inclusive strategies for the water supply sector. Innovation Strategies in Environmental Science is an important resource for environmental and sustainability scientists interested in introducing innovative practices into their work to minimize environmental impacts.
