Ecological Footprint Analysis

From Daniels and Moore (2001):

EFA was designed as a readily comprehended indicator of the sustainability of the human economy vis-a `-vis the Earth’s remaining “natural” capacity to supply resources (sometimes considered equivalent to the planet’s terrestrial “carrying capacity”). It groups and calculates material and energy requirements of nations (or regions) for a limited number of consumption functions, converts these metabolic flows into the ecologically productive land area required to produce the resources used in these activities, and compares the required areas to available regional, national, and global ecologically productive areas. Existing studies have typically been restricted to the ecological resource output potential of terrestrial areas

Economy-Wide Material Flow Analysis (EW MFA)

From Daniels and Moore (2001) (this paper describes "bulk internal flow material flow analysis", which we have here defined as Economy-Wide Material Flow Analysis):

The bulk internal flow material flow analysis (MFA-BIF) models developed as material flow balance models that focused on both material inputs and output flows and stock accumulations, induced by the entire societal metabolism of a given region. An essential principle is that of “materials balance” in order to derive consistent and balanced measures of material inputs and outputs across the economy-environment system boundary. The approach has also incorporated the identification and quantification of physical flows of “bulk” material categories within at least a limited number of subsystem components of the economic region under study. These studies may be considered as MFA-BIF. They lie between the TMRO approach and the highly disaggregated treatment of material inter- dependencies between sectors in physical input-output tables (hence, their occasional labeling as “bulk PIOTs”). The MFA-BIF approach aims to reveal the fundamental nature of economic system sources of flows and provides an overview of the structural nature of the material basis of economies.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

From Daniels and Moore (2001):

Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is an environmental management tool for identifying (and comparing) the whole life cycle, or cradle-to-grave, environmental impacts of the creation, marketing, transport and distribution, operation, and disposal of specific human artifacts. The approach is intrinsically holistic in nature and considers direct and, ideally, related processes and hidden, nonmarket flows of raw materials and intermediate inputs, and waste and other material and energy outputs associated with the entire existence or “product chain” or “system” (Guinee et al. 1993). The LCA procedure often involves a comparison of a small number of substitutable products assumed to provide a similar consumption service.

Material Intensity per Unit Service (MIPS)

From Daniels and Moore (2001):

Material intensity per unit service (MIPS) involves the identification of a single mass-based measure of the total, life-cycle-wide (or cradle-to-grave) primary material and energy requirement of environmentally significant economic output in the form of specific products, or forms of infrastructure or service delivery. Examples include newspaper, orange juice, an automobile, a prestressed concrete power pole, and alternative transport modes. A characteristic emphasis of MIPS is the linking of required inputs to goods as “functional units” providing end-user service “units” or “utilizations” (e.g., the passenger-kilometers yielded by an automobile). The final MIPS measure is expressed as the ratio of the mass of material and energy inputs to physical (and sometimes monetary) measures of services provided as benefits to people. The result is a material “intensity” involved in the provision a specified level of service of the system under study and represents a measure of the anthropogenic ecological or environmental impact intensity of selected forms of economic output. The geographic extent of measured flows induced by the product under study is typically global in nature and takes a life-cycle perspective with the explicit goal of capturing the full “ecological rucksack” associated with the production, consumption, disposal, and possible recycling and reuse of the product and its components.

Physical input-output tables (PIOT) / Input-Output Assessment (IOA)

From Daniels and Moore (2001):

Physical input-output tables (PIOT) allow national-level analysis that extends upon conventional input-output methodology and classifications to incorporate environmental resource and waste output “sectors” to provide measures of the physical flow of materials and goods within the economic system and between the economic system and the natural environment. This approach involves the exhaustive physical coverage of the movement (origins and uses) of most environmentally relevant materials induced by an economic region (sometimes disaggregated to the level of elements or simple chemical compounds). The PIOT method traces how natural resources enter, are processed, and subsequently as commodities, are moved around the economy, used, and finally returned to the natural environment in the form of residuals. It undertakes the detailed investigation of intersectoral physical flows of environmental resources inputs and commodity weights and residuals, and given this intersectoral specification and transactions matrix structure, has the ability to evaluate the cumulative environmental burden (total direct and indirect effect material requirements and pressures) of private consumption and other final demand for the products of different industries.

Substance Flow Analysis (SFA)

From Daniels and Moore (2001):

Substance flow analysis (SFA) focuses on material flows of just one, chemically defined substance, or a limited group of such substances through the metabolism of a relatively extensive, predefined geographic region. Within this region, all significant economic sources acting as the driving forces behind induced substance flows are considered. “Substances,” as chemical elements and their compounds, comprise the “material” under study. Typical examples in existing research include nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous, chromium, mercury, lead and other heavy metals, carbon, water, and organochlorine compounds. The substance-based “material flux analysis” approach, centered on a core group of researchers in Switzerland, is also considered as a major form of SFA.
