The Circular Economy: Case Studies about the Transition from the Linear Economy explores examples of the circular economy in action. Unlike other books that provide narrow perceptions of wide-ranging and highly interconnected paradigms, such as supply chains, recycling, businesses models and waste management, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the circular economy from various perspectives. Its unique insights into the approaches, methods and tools that enable people to make the transformation to a circular economy show how recent research, trends and attitudes have moved beyond the "call to arms" approach to a level of maturity that requires sound scientific thinking.
- Compiles evidence through case studies that illustrate how individuals, organizations, communities and countries are transitioning to a circular economy
- Provides a theoretical and empirical summary of the circular economy that emphasizes what others are actually doing and planning
- Highlights achievements from industry, agriculture, forestry, energy, water and other sectors that show how circular principles are applicable, eco-friendly, profitable, and thus sustainable
Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers working on theories and applications associated with economic sustainability
