Thomas Graedel

Thomas Graedel is the Clifton R. Musser Professor of Industrial Ecology. The co-author of the first textbook on the subject (Industrial Ecology, Prentice Hall, 1995), he has since written three more books and a number of scholarly articles on aspects of industrial ecology. His environmental assessment matrix, developed during a 27-year career with AT&T Bell Laboratories, is now a standard industrial tool for streamlined life-cycle assessments of the environmental attributes of products, processes, and facilities.
