Progress in Industrial Ecology, An International Journal (PIE), Vol. 9, No. 3, 2015

Abstract: Eco-industrial parks (EIPs) are becoming a way to guarantee a sustainable development of productive areas. Many scholars describe the main features of EIPs around the world contributing to the update of technological best practices and management options for these areas. Despite this, the Italian experiences on EIPs are not so well described in the literature while in Italy is present a fervent policy and industrial situation on this matter. The paper aims to bridge this gap describing the Italian most advanced experiences in the field of eco-industrial development. The paper aims at enriching the international knowledge on EIPs including technical data and the main features of Italian case studies and compare these with some international experiences.
