Second edition of “Metabolism of the Anthroposphere” released

17th of July 2012 by Stefanie Degreif

21 years after the publication of the milestone “Metabolism of the Anthroposphere” the authors Peter Baccini and Paul H. Brunner have launched a second edition which has been substantially revised and greatly expanded.

The book covers the characteristics of material stocks and flows of human settlements in space and time. The method of material flow analysis (MFA) for metabolic studies and the analysis of regional metabolism and the material systems
generated by basic activities are described. The authors offer four case studies of optimal metabolic system design: phosphorus management, urban mining, waste management, and mobility.

This second edition focuses also on design and resource utilization which reflects recent debates and scholarship on sustainable development and climate change.
