The objective of this thesis is to improve the basis for applying industrial ecology to the evaluation of material and energy resource use and transformation in industrial systems. The underlying hypothesis was that when the second law of thermodynamics is applied it improves the basis for using industrial ecology for the evaluation of the use and transformation of resources in industrial systems. Exergy analysis and entropy production calculation and minimisation of industrial processes are used as methods for analysis.
