REEVES, Mal de Terre, Ed Le Seuil, Paris, 2003. html © 2011 by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC C H A P T E R Industrial Ecology, A Global Approach for a Global Problem The concept of industrial ecology emerged in the United States at the beginning of the 1990s[FROSC89]. This “oxymoron” requires further investigation since these two words seem completely incompatible. “Ecology” refers to scientific ecology, the study of ecosystems. “Industrial” designates contemporary industrial society, in the Anglo-Saxon meaning of the term[ERKMA98]: production machine, distribution system, public or private services, agriculture, community, transport, habitat… .

However, the prefix “eco” is ambivalent: this development becomes both “eco-logic” and “eco-nomic”. Certain experiments show that an inter-business cooperation, once up and running, is rarely just limited to flow exchanges. Mutualized actions can for example allow small businesses to reduce their caretaking, mail collecting, catering etc. costs. The European Community has decided to experiment with this mode of local economic development by financing (Interreg IIIC program) the creation of eco-industrial parks in Catalonia (Ecosind project).

It may need purifying (dirtied from a chemical product), calibrating (rubble transformed into construction material) or even repairing (damaged palette). All of these operations undertaken locally need a labor force. The experiment undertaken in the Aube department put a company forward for which the integration of the material and energy loops concept is exemplary. AT France is an industrial charcuterie company. As illustrated in Figure 14, an internal boiler was installed in order to burn their production fat.
