Eco-industrial Parks

Project Overview

Eco-industrial Parks (EIPs) continued to be a focus of Marian Chertow’s research.  For the third year, she organized research groups within the Industrial Ecology class to investigate existing, proposed, or possible EIPs in Connecticut, New England and internationally.  This collection of EIP studies, now the largest body of EIP literature in the world, is being prepared for publication as an FES bulletin.  In related work, MES students Robert Klee and Roger Williams conducted research on international eco-industrial park development, highlighting a very effective EIP in Fiji.
