15 p, 2.6 MB The profile of time allocation in the metabolic pattern of society : an internal biophysical limit to economic growth / Manfroni, Michele (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Velasco-Fernández, Raúl (Institut d'Estudis Regionals i Metropolitans de Barcelona) ; Pérez-Sánchez, Laura (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Bukkens, Sandra (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
We show that shortage of human activity may represent an internal constraint to economic growth as relevant as external resource and sink constraints. Human time is required, both inside and outside the market, to produce and consume the goods and services needed to sustain societal metabolism. [...]

A waste lexicon to negotiate extended producer responsibility in free trade agreements / Torrente, Jorge M. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Ripa, Maddalena (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Chifari, Rosaria (Fundació ENT) ; Bukkens, Sandra (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Developing economies largely rely on imported consumer goods from the manufacturing industries of industrialized economies through free-trade agreements. After consumption, goods end-up in local waste streams and landfilled because of poorly developed waste management systems. [...]

15 p, 3.5 MB Multi-scale integrated evaluation of the sustainability of large-scale use of alternative feeds in salmon aquaculture / Cadillo Benalcazar, Juan José (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Bukkens, Sandra (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Strand, Roger (Universitetet i Bergen. Senter for vitenskapsteori)
The steady increase in production volume of salmon aquaculture has sharpened concerns about its sustainability. In particular the production of salmon feed is a reason for concern given its reliance on scarce natural resources, such as wild fish captures. [...]

14 p, 2.8 MB Analyzing the energy performance of manufacturing across levels using the end-use matrix / Velasco-Fernández, Raúl (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Bukkens, Sandra (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Within the context of the controversial use of the concept energy intensity to assess national energy performance, this paper proposes an innovative accounting framework: the energy end-use matrix. This tool integrates quantitative assessments of energy use of the various constituent compartments of socioeconomic systems. [...]
