Asia-Pacific has undergone unique and remarkable economic and social changes for decades. Meanwhile, unprecedentedly significant and complicated challenges, particularly resource and environmental constraints, are to be overcome in the region, rendering a perfect opportunity for the development of industrial ecology and its applications. For scientists, engineers, managers, decision makers, and young professionals and students who are interested in the region’s latest eco-industrial development, the ISIE Asia-Pacific Meeting series provides an open, synergetic, and multidisciplinary platform. Its main objective is to cultivate and strengthen communication, collaboration, and network among the various groups.
