Book Description :

Sustainable industrial engineering addresses the sustainability issue from economic, environmental, and social points of view. Its application fields are the whole value chain and lifecycle of products/services, from the development to the end-of-life stages. This book aims to address many of the challenges faced by industrial organizations and supply chains to become more sustainable through reinventing their processes and practices, by continuously incorporating sustainability guidelines and practices in their decisions, such as circular economy, collaboration with suppliers and customers, using information technologies and systems, tracking their products’ life-cycle, using optimization methods to reduce resource use, and to apply new management paradigms to help mitigate many of the wastes that exist across organizations and supply chains. This book will be of interest to the fast-growing body of academics studying and researching sustainability, as well as to industry managers involved in sustainability management.

Book Description :

World-class, commercial supply chain management standards are now exceptionally high. The best organizations measure order-to-receipt time in two days or less, with near perfect probability. This speed is backed up by nimble systems capable of rapidly responding to unexpected contingencies and surge requirements. Unfortunately, while the commercial sector has been rapidly adopting modern, information-based supply chain systems-in order to remain competitive in the worldwide marketplace-the shift to such systems in the public sector has met with significant resistance and has moved far more slowly. Transforming Government Supply Chain Management provides the insights and expertise to overcome this inertia. In Part I, the editors provide a primer on supply chain management, an overview of innovative practices and tools, and a blueprint for government-wide transformation. Part II consists of ten case studies of public and private sector "success stories." The intent of this book is to help speed-up the needed transformation in the public sector.

Book Description :

This book provides a detailed study of the Thai rubber industry and its utilisation of renewable resources, focussing on the use of open source software in building supply chain models. By describing elements that the supply chain is composed of and relating this to Thailand’s rubber industry, the authors then outline the construction of a Discrete Event Simulation (DES) model and use open source software to model renewable resources in this particular supply chain. Emphasis is placed on the way that modelling can aid the important decision-making required in the exploitation of natural resources. By taking a hands-on approach and offering a valuable guide for readers, this book not only appeals to academics in the fields of industrial engineering, operations, logistics and supply chain management, but also to practitioners, policy-makers and associations involved in the rubber industry.

Book Description :

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is internationally accepted as a core topic in the field of environmental management in various industries for obtaining a complete picture of the environmental impacts of products or processes. In contrast to other types of environmental management tools or sustainability assessment methods, LCA methodologies take a holistic approach to include all relevant processes starting from the extraction of natural resources to various manufacturing stages that lead to the final product.Following an evidence-approach, LCA is underpinned by quantitative methodologies to study real-world problems and uncover 'hidden' impacts beyond the conventional boundary of a single-stage manufacturing system, to develop sustainable strategies that consider regional or global production chains.This book offers multi-disciplinary perspectives of new LCA developments and applications, spanning from data variability to ecosystem services, plus the evaluation of the net greenhouse gas from Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) methods and waste management. Perspectives of green chemistry principles via LCA, combined with life cycle atom economy approaches are explored. Industrial symbiosis concepts, LCA as an Entrepreneurial Tool for Business Management and Green Innovations, and blockchain-enabled LCA are also presented.

Book Description :

Consistent information on raw material value chains is key for sustainable resources management, to guarantee supply of raw materials and strengthen the EU industry competitiveness. The European Commission launched the development of Material System Analysis (MSA) studies in 2015, to assess the flows of materials through the EU economy, including extraction, stock accumulation and end-of-life management e.g., through disposal or recovery in the EU. The MSA studies consider the entire life cycle of a selected material. This highlights hotspots and bottlenecks in a material value chain. Awareness of weak points in the value chain can guide actions designed to increase the resilience of the supply chain, also in the face of disrupting events. MSA, by virtue of accounting for materials in stock, can also help identifying opportunities to source materials from urban mine or waste streams, allowing to improve the overall circularity of the EU. The systemic view of the MSA also lends itself to develop and support scenarios and outlooks. The current report includes the MSA for the raw materials: barytes, bismuth, hafnium, helium, natural rubber, elemental phosphorus, scandium, tantalum and vanadium. These materials have been or are considered critical raw materials in the EU. The materials cycles analysed show a very strong dependence on imports along the value chain. The EU is highly dependent on imports of primary materials and intermediate products and has a consolidated manufacturing stage for all the materials analysed (except for helium). The EU is efficient in collecting end-of-life products, however most of the targeted materials are lost due to in-use dissipation, non-functional recycling, or disposal in other waste streams. This indicates that the EU is not yet able to decrease its dependency of primary material using secondary materials domestically recycled. However, for some materials (e.g. elemental phosphorus) significant efforts are undertaken to change this situation in the future to improve the EU circularity. The developed MSA are comprehensive datasets that may provide crucial knowledge to help the development and monitoring of EU polices including: the EU list of Critical Raw Materials, the new EU Industrial Strategy, the Green Deal transition plan, the EU Raw Materials Initiative and the EU Circular Economy Action Plan.

Book Description :

As China takes up the mantle of a global power, its diplomatic policy has changed significantly as it assumes a role of regional leadership. Until recently, China has not tended to talk about its developmental strategy as a model for others to follow. Since the rise of Xi Jinping this has changed, and the state has become more open in sharing its developmental experiences with its neighbours. This has become an important part of China’s diplomatic relations with other countries in East Asia. Beijing has also emphasized people-to-people diplomacy, with outward tourism and other exchanges of peoples seen as an important part of building stronger relations with its neighbours. The chapters in this book all address different elements of this strategy, looking at China’s bilateral relationships with other East Asian countries in terms of developmental relations and the increasing mutual exposure of their citizens. This book will be of great interest to scholars of Chinese diplomacy, especially those with a particular interest in soft power.
