I am writing to the dioxin-l list because I want to let you know of some
recent work on the controversy over chlorine and the environment.
I am the editor of a new journal owned by Yale University, headquartered
at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and published by MIT
Press. The JOURNAL OF INDUSTRIAL ECOLOGY is an international peer-reviewed
quarterly that examines the relationship between industry and the
environment from the perspective of the emerging field of industrial ecology.
The premiere issue of the JOURNAL inaugurates a special series on chlorine
flows and the environment. In the first issue are articles by Dutch
researchers summarizing a massive government-funded study tracing
approximately 99% of the flows of chlorinated compounds through the Dutch
economy. In the same issue, Robert Ayres, the dean of materials flows
analysis, starts a 4 part series on the life cycle of chlorine in the US
and Western European.
The second issue contains articles assessing the application of the
precautionary principle to chlorinated compounds under uncertainty (by the
Dutch researchers) and an examination by Dennis Chang (Abt Associates) and
David Allen (Univ of Texas, Austin) of how the cost of chemical
manufacturing would change if the use of chlorinated intermediates were
