Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Current narrative on biofuels is backed up by a large number of studies published in the scientific literature that address second-generation bioethanol only through a single topic approach, nonetheless in the vast majority of cases transition to this energy carrier is evaluated as a generally ‘promising’ technology.

10 p, 2.2 MB Characterizing the metabolic pattern of urban systems using MuSIASEM: The case of Barcelona / Pérez-Sánchez, Laura (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Velasco Fernández, Raúl (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Ripa, Maddalena (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The extreme degree of openness of contemporary urban systems with regard to both economy and population creates a serious challenge for the study of urban energy metabolism. A novel tool based on Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Societal and Ecosystem Metabolism (MuSIASEM) is proposed to overcome these challenges. [...]

13 p, 1.9 MB Unraveling the complexity of the Jevons Paradox : the link between innovation, efficiency, and sustainability / Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences)
The term “Jevons Paradox” flags the need to consider the different hierarchical scales at which a system under analysis changes its identity in response to an innovation. Accordingly, an analysis of the implications of the Jevons Paradox must abandon the realm of reductionism and deal with the complexity inherent in the issue of sustainability: when studying evolution and real change how can we define “what has to be sustained” in a system that continuously becomes something else? In an attempt to address this question this paper presents three theoretical concepts foreign to conventional scientific analysis: (i) complex adaptive systems—to address the peculiar characteristics of learning and self-producing systems; (ii) holons and holarchy—to explain the implications of the ambiguity found when observing the relation between functional and structural elements across different scales (steady-state vs. [...]

The metabolism of oil extraction : a bottom-up approach applied to the case of Ecuador / Parra, Rony (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Di Felice, Louisa Jane (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Ramos Martín, Jesús (Universidad Regional Amazónica Ikiam. Grupo de Población y Ambiente)
The global energy system is highly dependent on fossil fuels, which covered approximately 90% of primary energy sources in 2016. As the quality and quantity of oil extracted changes, in response to changes in end uses and in response to biophysical limitations, it is important to understand the metabolism of oil extraction – i.

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 G.F. (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. [...]

35 p, 1.4 MB Power capacity: A key element in sustainability assessment / Diaz-Maurin, François ; Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
In the field of complex energetics, human societies to survive follow the same ‘maximum power principle’ as other living systems. In this view, human societies developed because they have been able to increase ‘their capacity to convert energy at a given time rate’ rather than simply increase ‘their level of energy consumption’.

300 p, 2.8 MB The water metabolism of socio-ecosystems. Epistemology, methods and applications / Madrid-López, Cristina ; Alcántara, Vicent, dir. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Ramos-Martín, Jesús, dir. (Instituto de Altos Estudios Nacionales (Ecuador)) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia
La línea de investigación presentada en esta tesis representa un primer acercamiento entre los estudios sobre Hidrología y Metabolismo Social. La línea nace de la observación de que el agua es evitada en los estudios que tratan el metabolismo y de que la ciencia del agua –si bien reconoce la necesidad de evolucionar hacia la interdisciplinariedad- todavía no ha conseguido conectar los análisis enfocados en la sociedad y en los ecosistemas. [...]
The research line presented in this dissertation is a first attempt to provide a bridge for the communication between Hydrological studies and Social Metabolism. It was born from the observation that water is neglected in Social Metabolism and that current water science, while certain about the need of evolving towards a more interdisciplinary field, still faces challenges in the connection of social and ecosystem analyses. [...]
