Νew book by Assistant Professor Alexandros Stefanakis (School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Technical University of Crete) and Associate Professor Ioannis Nikolaou (Department of Environmental Engineering, Democritus University of Thrace) published by Elsevier. The two-volume book on "Circular Economy and Sustainability" contains 63 chapters written by 198 authors from 33 different countries and all continents.
This book highlights how we see the concept of circular economy and sustainability, built on three main pillars: (i) environmental engineering, (ii) business, management, and economy, and (iii) society. The role of engineering and management is crucial in building a sustainable society by developing a circular economy that establishes and protects strong social and cultural structures, based on cross-disciplinary knowledge and diverse skills. The challenge is to investigate the interconnections, interactions and synergies between these three pillars and how these relations are or can be realized in the real world.
