"Zero emissions" has become a definitive term in the debate on sustainable development in the last few years. This radical book focuses on a world where the waste for one process can become the raw material for another - a cascade of materials once thought worthless supporting new products, new processes and new wealth - as industries that were previously considered unrelated cluster together. A world where new business will be created on an unprecedented scale. This is not just a theory: projects in the agro-industries, based on integrated biosystems, are already up and running in countries as diverse as Fiji, Namibia and Colombia and are fully described in the book, as is the lead given by Japan in terms of the adoption of the concept. In UpSizing, Gunter Pauli, founder of the Zero Emissions Research Initiative (ZERI), examines how the adoption of the Zero Emissions concept not only radically reduces pollution and waste but can contribute significantly to the generation of income and jobs - specifically for those that need them most: the rural poor in less developed countries.

These are exciting concepts, which point towards a more holistic view of sustainable development than anything debated to date. - Tomorrow magazine - Paul Scott

Zero Emissions will be the standard for industry in the 21st century. - 1996 White Book on The Environment, The Environment Agency, Japan

Pauli's treatise is compelling ... [he] clearly knows his stuff, and serves up new concepts and terminology every few pages. But woven through are inspiring stories of enterprises in a variety of countries that have prospered by creating closed loop systems. - The Green Business Letter

The discussed cases show that not only can pollution and waste be reduced to zero, but at the same time income and amount of jobs can be increased. The whole of society will benefit from it. - International Journal of Environment and Pollution
