Diets have important but often complex implications for both environmental quality and nutrition. We establish a production-oriented life cycle model to quantify and compare the farm-to-gate environmental impacts and food nutritional qualities underlying rural and urban diets in China from 1980 to 2019, a period of rapid urbanization and socioecono...
Article
China is now boasting a huge number of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) with a low recovery rate, resulting in a waste of resources and severe environmental pollution. Predicting the generation of ELVs in future helps to enhance recycling efficiency by providing a basis for the planning of recycling industry. However, previous research did not provide a...
Article
Recycling lithium-ion batteries from electric vehicles is considered an important way to tackle the future supply risks of virgin materials, but the actual environmental impact of traction battery recycling is controversial. This study conducted a process-based life cycle assessment to quantify the environmental impacts of hydrometallurgical recycl...
Article
A better understanding of the waste of end-of-life batteries from electric vehicles (EVs) is a basis for their sustainable management. This study aims to estimate the waste of end-of-life EV batteries during 2006–2040 in China and to analyze the opportunities and challenges of subsequent utilization, based on a developed numerical model, real marke...
Article
The aim of this paper is to explore consumers’ intention of recycling obsolete mobile phone through formal channels in China. Taking Jiangsu Province as an example, the survey results revealed that although nearly half of consumers prefer to save their obsoleted mobile phones at residence, those who are willing to participate in recycling prefer fo...
Article
Different crops and fertilizer combinations result in different greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. To investigate GHG emissions among crops with different chemical fertilizer production and use processes, we use a partial life-cycle based greenhouse gas footprint approach to evaluate total GHG emissions, emissions per unit area, and emissions per unit...
Article
Low nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) and phosphorus use efficiency (PUE) of crop farming has been causing serious environmental consequences. Here, we established a NUECF (nutrient use efficiency of crop farming) model with substance flow analysis (SFA) method to examine NUE and PUE of cultivating nine main crops in Chaohu Watershed in 2015. We collec...
Article
As the world’s largest consumer of textiles, China is now facing a rapid increase of textile waste. Understanding consumers’ clothing disposal behaviors is instructive to encourage more environmental-friendly recycling practices. Take Nanjing city as an example, a questionnaire was developed and conducted to assess consumers’ behaviors with respect...
Article
Life-cycle assessment (LCA) emphasizes obtaining primary data from an on-site process to reduce uncertainties. However, data of the upstream process from secondary sources also yield significant uncertainties, which have not been drawn enough attention. This study aims to explore the importance of primary data of the upstream process in LCAs. Here,...
Article
Forecasting the trend of scrapped household automobiles (HAs) at the city level will help to improve the automobile recycling system, and further promote the implementation of the national circular economy strategy. Based on a stocks-driven model, we project the generation of HAs scrap in urban and rural areas of Nanjing city in 2019–2050, under di...
Article
To evaluate the urban mining potentials of university, we characterize in-use and hibernating stocks of personal electronics possessed by university students in Jiangsu Province, China. Students' behaviors towards disposing of personal electronics are also explored, including obsolescence, hibernation and recycling. Mainly based on a questionnaire...
Article
Since the economic reform, China has actively participated in the global market with rapid industrialization and gradually dominated the utilization and consumption of some critical materials, one of which is copper. China has reigned the global anthropogenic cycle of copper since 2004. We explore copper flows along with the international trade of...
Article
This study presented a life cycle assessment of the environmental impacts of the production of three crops (rice, wheat, and maize) in the Chaohu Watershed of China. The crop production system involved phosphate rock mining, P fertilizer manufacturing, crop cultivating, and crop processing. Resource depletion, climate change, and eutrophication wer...
Article
Phosphorus (P) is an essential resource for agriculture and also a pollutant capable of causing eutrophication. The possibility of a future P scarcity and the requirement to improve the environment quality necessitate P management to increase the efficiency of P use. This study applied a substance flow analysis (SFA) to implement a P management pro...
Article
The data uncertainty is a crucial limitation for substance flow analysis (SFA) studies. Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is used to assess the data uncertainty of the anthropogenic phosphorous (P) flow analysis in Chaohu Watershed. The study selects the key data in crop farming, large-scale breeding, and rural consumption subsystems, which are the bigge...
Article
The rapid increase of phosphorus (P) use in farming has raised concerns regarding its conservation and environmental impact. Increasing the P use efficiency (PUE) is an approach to mitigating these adverse impacts. In this study, we applied substance flow analysis (SFA) to establish a life-cycle P use efficiency model to determine the life-cycle PU...

PurposeBuilding is one of the main factors of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission from building is urgent for environmental protection and sustainable development. The objective of this study is to develop a life cycle assessment (LCA) model for an office building in China to assess...
Article
Human activities disturb the long-term phosphorus (P) cycle in nature, whereby the resulting intensive release of P contributes to the eutrophication of surface water. Hence, a detailed understanding of P flow as it relates to socioeconomic systems is essential for effective nutrient management. This study develops a substance-flow-analysis model f...
Article
Anthropogenic phosphorus load in the aquatic environment of Lujiang County, central China, may be a serious problem, greatly contributing to surface water eutrophication. Using substance flow analysis, this study develops a phosphorus-flow analytical model to trace the pathways of this limiting nutrient throughout Lujiang's socioeconomic system. Th...
Article
The high levels of phosphorus (P) occurring through human activities contribute to the eutrophication. Hence, for mitigating the eutrophication, it is important to understand the quantity of P flows of the different components of local socioeconomic ecosystems, and how the components interlink. In this study, the static substance flow analysis (SFA...
Article
By implementing the method of substance flow analysis, the paper developed a static phosphorus flow analysis model of agricultural ecosystem in Chaohu Watershed, and then evaluated the phosphorus losing to water of the agricultural ecosystem of every phosphorus source and county in the watershed in 2008 with statistics and literatures. The total ph...
Article
The substance flow analysis (SFA) method was employed to examine phosphorus flow and its connection to water pollution in the city of Hefei, China, in 2008. As human activity is the driving force of phosphorus flux from the environment to the economy, the study provides a conceptual framework for analyzing an anthropogenic phosphorus cycle that inc...
