EIP Handbook Overview
The Asian Development Bank asked me to prepare this new edition of our Eco-Industrial Park Handbook specifically for developing countries in Asia. The purpose of this publication is to support the many stakeholders in industrial development who seek a sustainable path for industry in this major region: real estate developers, industrial leaders, economic and environmental policy-makers, financiers, leaders of non-governmental organizations, and leaders of communities that host industrial parks and facilities.
To serve this purpose, the new Handbook includes an overview of each facet of industrial park development. It ranges from the soft infrastructure of policy, finance economic development, urban planning, and education to the specific architectural, technical, recruitment, and management considerations in industrial park design. It includes many Asian examples as well as ones from elsewhere. In each chapter there are sources of print and electronic information to find more information.
I have made many changes in this EIP Handbook, based on my learning in the last six years from my work with eco-industrial initiatives as well as the experience of my many colleagues in this field. I have revised most chapters extensively and there are several completely new ones (since the 1995 edition for US-EPA). These changes are necessary because this has been a time of rapid change in the state of industrial development and its impacts on nature and society. There are no signs that the pace of change is slowing so you will be able to find updates regularly at this web site.
Real estate developers, industrial plant planning teams, economic development and urban planning personnel, public works managers (especially in solid and liquid waste and energy infrastructure), architects and environmental protection staff can all benefit from using the Handbook. It is also a valuable college text for courses in any of these subjects.
This new edition of the EIP Handbook may focus on the sustainable development needs of developing countries in Asia, however, the basic principles and strategies are applicable anywhere.
Geng Yong, a Chinese industrial ecologist and colleague at Dalian University of Technology, has prepared g a Chinese language edition of the Eco-Industrial Park Handbook.
