Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Sustainability
  • Agriculture

His scientific interests lie mostly in Emergy, Sustainability, Environmental economics, Environmental resource management and Production. The Emergy study combines topics in areas such as Natural resource economics, Exergy, Environmental accounting and Renewable energy. His Sustainability study incorporates themes from Carrying capacity, Risk analysis, Process and Index.

His Environmental economics study combines topics in areas such as Life-cycle assessment, Environmental impact assessment and Cleaner production. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biosphere, Health indicator and Sustainable development in addition to Environmental resource management. He interconnects Energy consumption, Fossil fuel and Embodied energy in the investigation of issues within Production.

His most cited work include:

  • A review on circular economy: the expected transition to a balanced interplay of environmental and economic systems (1445 citations)
  • A review on circular economy: the expected transition to a balanced interplay of environmental and economic systems (1445 citations)
  • Emergy-based indices and ratios to evaluate sustainability: monitoring economies and technology toward environmentally sound innovation (522 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Sergio Ulgiati mainly focuses on Emergy, Sustainability, Environmental economics, Natural resource economics and Environmental resource management. His Emergy study deals with the bigger picture of Sustainable development. The various areas that Sergio Ulgiati examines in his Sustainability study include Production, Agriculture, Circular economy, Environmental impact assessment and Renewable energy.

He focuses mostly in the field of Environmental economics, narrowing it down to matters related to Life-cycle assessment and, in some cases, Environmental engineering and Waste management. His studies in Natural resource economics integrate themes in fields like Consumption and Embodied energy. He has included themes like Land use, Urbanization, Urban metabolism, Ecosystem and Index in his Environmental resource management study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Emergy (58.15%)
  • Sustainability (45.23%)
  • Environmental economics (32.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Sustainability (45.23%)
  • Environmental economics (32.31%)
  • Emergy (58.15%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Sustainability, Environmental economics, Emergy, Circular economy and Life-cycle assessment. The concepts of his Sustainability study are interwoven with issues in Environmental planning, Ecosystem services, Water use, Natural resource economics and Neoclassical economics. His Environmental economics research includes themes of Energy consumption, Biofuel, Resource and Material efficiency.

His research in Emergy intersects with topics in Value, Resource, Resilience and Natural capital. Sergio Ulgiati combines subjects such as Production, Environmental protection, Sustainable development, Urban metabolism and Neoliberalism with his study of Circular economy. His Life-cycle assessment study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Food waste, Environmental impact assessment and Renewable energy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Emergy Evaluation of the Biosphere and Natural Capital (142 citations)
  • Life Cycle Assessment and Water Footprint of Hydrogen Production Methods: From Conventional to Emerging Technologies (61 citations)
  • Evaluating the transition towards cleaner production in the construction and demolition sector of China: A review (55 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Sustainability
  • Agriculture

Sergio Ulgiati spends much of his time researching Sustainability, Environmental economics, Circular economy, Cleaner production and Life-cycle assessment. Sergio Ulgiati studies Sustainability, focusing on Emergy in particular. Sergio Ulgiati has researched Emergy in several fields, including Index, Environmental resource management and Natural capital.

His research integrates issues of Production and Material efficiency in his study of Environmental economics. His study in Circular economy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Reuse and Sustainable development. His Life-cycle assessment research incorporates themes from Economic indicator, Resource, Environmental impact assessment and Renewable energy.
